I usually purchase my stop ring bullets from Buffalo Arms: http://www.buffaloarms.com/browse.cfm/4,129.html

Just a lovely rifle. Could the engraved figures be Siegfried and Brunhild?

Neil, before seeing your post I was about to comment that the engraving was very ¨Wagnerian¨.

Nice rifle!

Engraving is very similar to the style of the one I saw, only that one had a Brauhaus maiden with beer steins on one side and a Jaegermeister on the other. If I recall it was a Haenel.

While the metalwork on the one I saw was excellent, the stock looked like I had made it myself. Badly carved and finished, nothing as nice as Jims. It was also missing the rear sight, had the mounting hole but no sight.

So what's in the accessory box? Well it's obvious it's an extra sight. But what about the other pieces?
Jim
Picture 1 Are the items in the box. One item is still a mystery.

Picture 2 Are the three items out of the box. I don't know what the single metal item that looks like a spare firing pin is for exactly.

Picture 3 Is the small tubular device with a cork in the end. If you pull the cork and look thru it you get some magnification.

Picture 4 Is the sight with the tube screwed onto it. It's purpose apparentely was to provide some magnification thru the peep hole.


Every time I look at this rifle or the accessories I discover something I hadn't noticed before. As I stated earlier; This is going to be a learning experience.

The magnifier is too cool! Never seen that before. Is it focused for a specific distance?

I have no idea Rob but when I look through it at the computer screen it seems to about double the size of the print when I have it in focus.

There looks to be a D.R.P.(patent) number on the device. Can you tell what the number might be? With that I might be able to dig something up.

The only number is "1" at the top of the metal part stamped D.R.P.
I just returned from my club where we did a chamber cast and confirmed the caliber is 8.15 x 46R. I also took the opportunity to completely disassemble the gun an give it a thorough cleaning. It had been heavily greased intenally at some time in the past. The gunsmithing staff agreed it is in supurb condition and they're after me to get some ammo for it as they all want to fire it!

Thanks Jim. Scopes were a big no-no, faux paux, in the target arena during this era and I assumed it was a device that was used in an attempt to level the playing field for those with failing eyesight. I couldn't find the D.R.P. number so I contacted a GGCA member in Germany, Axel Eichendorff, and he provided me some info and this image from a 1930 catalogue, I think. I'll post additional info soon.


Kind Regards,
