    I have never heard of it before either.
    303 is ok but rear locking - works in rough conditions but fires a rimmed cartridge
    Sorry but I cannot help you

    Dont be set on the 303 being in a Lee Enfield or P14 as it was also chambered in other actions. Rigby among other British makers chamberd the mauser for it (on order) so maybe other non factory makers did as well and as the Zongler name seems to be unknown it may well be that he was a gunsmith who chambered another action for the cartridge.

    Nothing comes up on the net either!
    Perhaps ask the person who's selling it to give more detail?!
