Classic Mauser action hunting rifle by Sauer & Son, chambered for .30-’06 Springfield. This rifle shows the craftsmanship that Germany was famous for before WWI; it features a 21 inch barrel with an integral matted rib, single leaf express sight, double set triggers and lever release floor plate, barrel mounted front sling swivel and the forend is retained with a wedge like an early percussion shotgun. From the proof marks we know that it was made in 1912 or before, very early for a .30-’06, also the barrel shank is marked “Fluid Steel – Krupp Essen” in English, it was likely made for export to the USA. The action and barrel still retain much of the original high polish blue and a good bore, the stock shows much use but it has not been abused. The color casehardened bolt is matching to the action by the DWM serial number on the bottom of the receiver, see the photos; 170127 on the side of the receiver is the serial number from Sauer & Son.
