Very nice. Missed this thread the first time. I have a little Schoenauer as well and it makes a perfect little whitetail deer rifle. Regrettably, some idiot converted it to 6.5x57 in the past. Though a great caliber, it isn't much better than the 6.5x54MS, and now the little rifle it only feeds two rounds reliably from the magazine.
My spouse and I are going to Austria next year in September, and I'll spend a few days hunting Keiler and Rehwild before we play tourist in Wien. Will be my first opportunity to hunt a Roe since I was stationed in Germany in the late seventies.

That Ischler Stutzen is magnificent.

Red Leg, have you tried round nose bullets? Even the x54 will give feeding problems with spitzer bullets. Finding a 6.5x57 magazine would be the best solution but, I hear they are found right next to the hen's teeth.:(

HWL, nice Chamois. I, like you, also have a love affair with the Mannlicher-Schoenauer being blessed with a Carbine and a Rifle, both in .30'06. What is the one you pictured chambered in?
Your country is absolutely beautiful!

Red Legs "Stutzen" looks like an early Model 1903, a 6,5x57 magazine will not fit, because the action is to short.

The only straight way is to rebarrel it to 6,5x54 MS.

The original barrel is gone already.... so nothing is destroyed that isn't anyways.

This is the perfect reason to visit Ferlach, one of the most dangerous places for gun freaks....

They eat credit cards for breakfast....

Hi Joe...

The one on the pic is a model GK in 6,5x57 with the long 65,0 cm barrel, made in the early 60's

As far a I know, it was a special order back than.

I bought it used and saved it from blast furnance, mounted a 3-9x36 Swaro scope on claw mount. and be happy with it since.

Would like to see pictures from your .30-06 pair....

Nice pics. When I was a teenager, my father was stationed at SHAPE HQ in Belgium, and I managed a mountain climbing trip in Austria. The climbing was fun, the scenery amazing, and I still remember seeing the Chamois and thinking "I need to hunt these sturdy mountain animals." Thanks for sharing.

This thread has given me goosebumps.

My Grandfather came to America about 100 years ago, from a small town south of Insbruck.

The closest I have been, is skiing on Zugspitze in 1977 when I was a young Marine with a 4 day pass. I travelled up by train from Naples. Very memorable trip.

I really ought to plan a hunt to the hills where my ancestors roamed.

Thanks so much for starting this thread! :)

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
