    This is a so called "Ischler Stutzen". Ischl is a small town in Austria, and may be, the first rifles of this type came from this town or area. But I do not really know.
    "Stutzen" is a german word for a "short rifle". The rifles are single shot, break open, under lever, full stocked hammer-guns. .This particular gun is a 6,5x57R with octagonal barrel, and made around the turn of the last century. Now it is more than 100 years old, and I wished, I would be in this condition, when I am so old. Gams do not like it!!!

    Sorry, there is no "story".... Gams is not an unusual prey where I live and hunt. Sometimes, they are hard to come by, but I like the challenge, especially with an old rifle.
    The rifle also has a peep sight, and it is a real thrill, to hunt like our grandfathers did.

    Really nice Ischler! Do you know who fabricated the rifle?
    Sometimes Austrian rifles are marked with a circle and monograms underneath the barrel.
