OBERNDORF MAUSER Model 1896 7MM CAL  Guns > Rifles > Mauser Rifles > German

CUSTOM ARMY-NAVY BOLT ACTION RIFLE ... 7mm Mauser caliber ... 24" barrel with deep-cut military-style rifling ... weight 7.9 lbs ... LOP 14 3/4" ... three leaf flip up rear sight & hooded ramp front sight. British proof on the barrel with nitro proof and with "Shot & Regulated by Army & Navy CSL London" on the barrel.

This gun has a unique history. Previous owner Colin King of Australia commisioned master engraver Bruce Dean to rework the gun with artfully done reminders of Australia. The trigger guard and floor plate are relief engraved with two of Australia's favorite game animals, a wild boar and a Sambar stag. These are surrounded by Australian flannel flower in intertwined deep relief scroll with a stippled background. A Neidner style steel buttplate was deep relief chiseled and pierced with the same flannel flower motif. A toe-line cartridge trap was added and engraved "7x57' and "Mauser". Finally, to top it all off, the bolt handle was chiseled into a feral goat head with stippled surface and a ring of flannel flowers.

The English walnut stock is excellent as professionally re-finished and features a swept pistol grip and shell-lip forearm. Generous, wrap around checkering with mullered borders covers the grip and forearm.

This gun comes with a 1993 copy of the 'Guns Australia' article. Call with any questions and see our other listings for ... "Only the best!"
