I've seen some interesting auctions on gunbroker the last month or so and I wondered if many of you had seen them too and wondered what you thought.

I really liked these two Mausers and thought someone got a good price on them. Any idea on who did the work?

Mauser #1

Mauser # 2


And I was following this 1903 Springfield, I thought it went kind of high, again any idea who did the work?

The same seller with the 1903 had few other custom rifles from the same estate possibly by the same maker.

That magazine door latch on the Krag is about the coolest thing I've seen in while.

I thought so too, but I think the skeletonized hammer on the trapdoor is pretty neat as well.

I'm certainly no expert on IDing the makers, but the Krag has some similarities to stocks made by John Hutton, particularly the cheek piece.

I was watching on Gunbroker a I Hollis & Sons sxs 10 gauge hammer gun [1885] that was being sold as a wall hanger it appeared to be just dirty and off face, on an impulse I bid on it and won. [$255] It turned out to be a very high grade gun and cleaned up excellent plus. welded the hook and put it back on face. Every once in a while you get lucky. One very interesting thing was the engraving on a 10.5 pd. gun which is quails and pheasants with pointers.The rib is engraved I Hollis & sons London Finest damascus Prize Field Gun

pod,
Please post some pictures of your find on the main forum. I would love to see it. I'm envious of people that patiently search for and eventually find such treasures at great deals like that.

I watched that Springfield too, and had an itch to bid until things went nuts toward the end. I don't know who built it, but it tickled my spidey-sense that it was someone I should've recognized. Geez I wish Michael were here- my education was just getting started.

There were two other nifty Springfield sporters early this week- a pretty M2 and a .22 K-Hornet conversion, from the same seller. I don't know how to retrieve the auctions or post links unfortunately. I was wondering if someone here snagged either of them. They too triggered my spidey-sense.

Wow, good for the seller, just a bit overpriced for the buyer. IMO

How was it determined that it was a Paul Jaeger rifle? Seems to me you have to take that on face value. No checkering? Mismatched engraving? Average quality stock work? PJ, I think not. Certainly not at nearly $1900
