$12,500.00

Caliber .22 Short. Original 28″ #3 full octagon bbl, with vernier folding tang sight, excellent bore. Original 3X grade pistol grip checkered Schuetzen style stock is in excellent condition with most orig lacquer intact, helm buttplate and Dutch pattern cheekpiece. Overall gun is exc with 98% orig bbl blue, 75-80% bright vivid case colors. The Schuetzen rifles with a case colored frame are really quite unusual, they’re generally later guns than that; complete with Factory Letter of Authenticity which states, ‘no rear sight seat’ but this has got a sight dovetail for a rear sight-probably an oversight or somebody put it in at a later time.
