My search is over - my newly acquired 11.2x72 Schuler Mauser

Hello All,

Some of you may have seen my post about the 11mm Johan Peterlongo Mauser that I bought at auction, and my disappointment in finding it was actually an 8x57I - and not an 11mm.

Well, a fellow Forum member saw my plea, and offered to sell me his 11.2x72 original Schuler that he purchased about 15 years ago. Its now in its new home here with me. Here is the original ad from when he purchased the rifle. He took very good care of it and its still in the same remarkable condition as when he bought it. The rifle came with RCBS reloading dies, 35 loaded rounds, 12 empty brass, and 475 assorted bullets consisting of 125 Woodleigh, 125 SAF Raptors, and 225 assorted softs and solids.

As always, your comments are welcome.

Hello All,
Thanks for the reply.

I'm very happy to have acquired this rifle, especially since its an original August Schuler, built by the man who invented the 11.2x72 Schuler cartridge. If anyone has any information about August Schuler and the cartridge, please share.

Hello All,
Thanks for the reply.

After doing some diligent research, I was able to acquire a copy of the original ad from when this rifle was first offered for sale many years ago.

I have had several Schuler rifles in the shop, a Jumbo and a couple of 11.2x72's. Every one I have had was a Schuler build I'm sure though they carried different retailers names(Stogos and Rodda) all had the brass plate on the bottom of the action extending the magazine box depth.

Hello SKB,
Thanks for the reply.

This rifle is like 2 Johan Peterlongo rifles in 11.2x72 that I have seen. There is no brass plate on them either. The magazine on this rifle hold 2 down and 1 up. Perhaps the brass plate addition came later than the 1921 date found on this one and was later standardized as the model 34.
