.22 and 11 mm? Quite a strange combination. I wonder what the story behind that is? A squirrel/deer rifle I guess. The scope on it looks very out of place and might be a little challenging to use with what looks like a lot of drop in the stock. But it was certainly somebody's baby once upon a time. How does it handle with the extra weight of a thick .22 liner? Too bad they didn't settle for a Crosno Insert instead.

There is little to no doubt that it has also been restocked as well. An einstecklauf would have been a better choice than a liner, both from the weight standpoint and you can adjust the POI of an einstecklauf. Given the clock hand cocking indicators and the Mauser Base cartridge, the gun is older than its refurbished condition makes it appear.

Hello All,

I got the rifle in hand today - it turns its NOT a 22 lr .... its 22 Hornet x 11x60 caliber.

It weighs 8 pounds 10.5 ounces - 25-1/4" barrels - Both Triggers are SET Triggers - Buffalo Horn Grooved Butt Plate - Nikon Prostaff Scope with BDC reticle - Clock Hand Cocking Indicatore - Manual Safety (non-automato) - All Original Finish both Wood and Metal.

Tomorrow I take it afield and test it.

I can't really read the side of the tube, but it appears to have passed thru the Z-M Proof Facility.

From the marks, it also appears that both tubes were 11mm X 60R and @ some point the left tube was sleeved, etc.

Serbus,
