    Enter the Minefield of Double Rifles from Baikal

    @ M McDindi,.... Thanks for your interesting report from me too. @ crs My intention for my "tool" was, to use it as a pig gun primarily. Africa is a good idea , but my .405 and .450/400 doubles have precedence.

    Enter the Minefield of Double Rifles from Baikal

    The right barrel constantly shoots 5 shot groups of 6 cm/100 m... sometimes a bit better. The left barrel also does, but point of impact is 10 cm high. I zeroed for the right barrel, knowing, the second shot is "high". I think & hope, within 50 m it is not a problem. The load is the...

    Need Information on this single shot big bore......

    This is a Mauser M71 single shot bolt action rifle in 11mm Mauser aka. .43Mauser, aka 11,15x60R. German service rifle from 1871 to 1884. You are right, it was made in Danzig Arsenal in 1877. This is not a Mauser M71/84 repeating rifle, introduced in 1884. I made a new stock for my M71 and...

    Not a problem, when you are familiar with this kind of shooting. Most old German claw mounts were made "see through"....to use iron sights with mounted scope. HWL

    New to me BRNO

    Congratulation..... But be carefully, as far as I know, Brno did not made 8x57I rifles at this time, but the more common and more powerfull 8x57IS only. Check bore dimensions.... or even better have checked it by a competent gunsmith. Anyways......I envey you,... great find! HWL

    We call it a "Fingerhaken",...finger hook. I like it, because it offers a tight grip to the rifle and prevents the middle finger form beening injured under heavy recoil. Recoil is not a problem with this 6,5x54 Mannlicher-Schoenauer, but I like it nontheless. HWL

    William Evans Cordite Rifle Advertisement

    The rifle looks like a Hembrug Mannlicher...... This rifle, generally chambered in .256 Mannlicher, could not carry a .375 Holland & Holland Magnum cartridge. Magazine was way to short. What I think they advertised is a .400/375 Belted Nitro Express, a .375 Flanged Nitro Express 2 1/2" (not...

    Mannlicher-Schoenauer, history, models, performance, features, storys

    You are right.... When I bought this rifle, the barrel inside was completely gone. This was the reason, because it was cheap. I rebarreled it, new scope, and the spur (new word for me) on the trigger guard. Barrel and scope, a Leupold 6,5-20x40, are in no way "traditional", but I like it...

    Mannlicher model 1905 in Africa

    Can not believe this... I have never encountered a Steyr barrel that did not meet C.I.P. dimensions, not since 1914..... not in any caliber. C.I.P. dimensions are 8,80 mm Zug (groove), 9,15 mm Feld (land) .... these are minimum dimensions. To compare, a .358 Winchester fireing .358 dia...

    Mannlicher model 1905 in Africa

    Do not worry about the .355 diameter you can find in literature..... Actually, the CIP groove diameter of the 9x56 Mannlicher-Schoenauer is 9,15 mm/.360 dia.!!! It can handle .358 dia bullets easily... I also have tried the 225 gr. Sierra, works fine. Just calculate it with QuickLoad. HWL
