SS# 11XX From a mid-west estate sale a great condition German Pre-War Mauser rifle 8x57J cal. (.318 diameter) This gun is beautifully engraved, has a half round half octagon barrel with rib, double set triggers, spoon bolt, metal butt plate, leather muzzle cover, scope (with quick disconnect mounts, leather lens caps and a leather carrying case for the scope when it is detached...(scope stamped Gerard with a number 5 and has a "Post" style recital), sling swivels and two leaf express sights. All visible numbers match. The wood is European walnut with nice checkering, rounded pistol grip, right hand cheek piece and European style forend(see photos) The metal finish is a very nice blue in excellent condition with a few spots of wear on the sharp edges (see photos). The "Old World" engraving is masterfully done. I am not a collector or an expert and know very little about this type of gun (therefore I took photos of every mark or stamp I could find on the outside of the gun). They had no extra information about the gun at the sale other than it had been in the family for a long time. This gun has a great bore and is in excellent working condition (the action is butter smooth) and the bolt and shell follower are engine turned. Three pieces of German currency came with the gun dated 1921 and 1922, I don't know what relationship the bills have with the gun but they were in the leather scope carrier. The gun is stamped "Munchen" on both sides of the barrel as well as marked with the cal. and A Schurk. At the sale they said A Schurk was a well known Munich gun smith and builder. The only fault I can find with the gun is that there has been a old repair at the toe of the stock and a small crack (it appears that the repair was done a long time ago and the stock is solid) see photos.
