Available is this pre-war Ernst Steigleder 8x60mmS sporting rifle. This rifle sports a 22" octagon to round barrel with integral full length rib. German claw mount bases. double set triggers. Take note of the trigger guard shaping, as well as the flats on the side of the front ring to allow for a slimmer stock.

Im listing since I have some plans for the property and need the funds. This is a lovely, sleek, great handling classic rifle which is a delight afield. Hunt it as is, or if desired a restoration to its original glory would make for a stunning piece!


It will come with Hornady dies, approximately 180 cases(most unfired), and many 170 and 192gr .323" Hornady bullets. Asking $2200

Gunmaker,
Would you closely check the light- colored spot on the right side of the buttstock for possible removal of a plate and filling/repair of 4 small nail holes. Also is there a small Imperial acceptance mark(eagle) ahead of the receiver on the right side of the barrel and a crown "R", "repair" proof on the bottom of the barrel. This rifle reminds me very much of the rifles donated by German hunters to the Government early in WW1 for use as sniper rifles, while the government was working to provide "issue" sniper rifles. Later, most of the donated rifles had the scopes removed and mounted on "issue" rifles. If this is one of those rifles it would at least show the "eagle" mark and "repair" proof(evidencing possible post war rechambering from 8x57S).

I see no evidence of previous nail holes or repairs to hide such. There are the three knots that go through the stock to the other side at the back of the cheakpiece. Is that what you’re seeing? Nothing on the toe line as well.

I’ll post photos of proof marks later.

According to my past research it was a rechambering from 8x57S.

I do not understand why one of you younger men have not purchased this rifle. If it has a good bore, it is one of those buys of a lifetime, and if I were not 80 years old I would buy it.

Kindest Regards;

Sign of the times I guess. Rather mind blowing a gun of this quality at this very fair price sits unsold. This rifle has “it”. I’ve seen plenty of bolt guns of lesser quality w/known names go for MUCH more.

The barrel alone is worth the price of the rifle.
