I picked this up last week to help a friend out so he could get a roof put on his garage and I really have no use for it.I thought I would post it on here to see if anyone had any interest.The makers name is on the pic of the rib.It has a 24" octagon to round full ribbed barrel and the LOP is 14 3/8" to front of the double set trigger and weighs under 8.5 lb.Most questions can be answered by the pics.Price is $5100 shipped.Brass dies and a bullet sizer .450 to .440 is included.

I must confess if have never heard of an 11.2x72 Schuyler before, but that is a beautiful rifle. You see some awfully cool stuff on this site!

There are some posts about the cartridge 11,2x72 Schüler in the Forum, but it is true that the cartridge was never very popular and therefore little is known about.
 
Interesting round. Schuler made some really nice rifles and was a good case designer. Looks like the brass can be made from 404 Jeff brass and some lathe work. Someone will get a nice rifle.

I don't think that's possible. For this cartridge you need the right components, cases and bullets.
 
The case dimensions are very close and you can resize the 404 in the 11.2x72 dies and a short trim. That's the easy part.

Now you have to chuck the 404 case in a lathe and turn the case rim down to the rebated rim size of the 11.2, then have to cut a new extractor groove to match the correct one in the 11.2. So until they get a run of the correct brass into suppliers you at least should be able to make some. Since the Ultra mag cases also use a 404 as the parent case in theory you should also be able to make brass from them.

Bullets you can find Hawk, woodleighs or cast bullets. There might be a few others out there. can also swage 45cal down.
 
Nice looking rifle in a interesting caliber.

Is the name on the barrel "FR. IENHAEFF UTRECHT"? It somewhat hard (for me) to read. Do you or your friend know anything about this maker.
 
I'm not sure of the proper name of the maker that's why I just posted a pic of it.I haven't done a search on the maker yet and was hoping someone here was familiar with him.

I think FR. TENHAEFF UTRECHT because the geweermaker company seems to still exist under this name in Utrecht/Netherlands.

I would be interested in it if you pass. Please send me the info on the gun shop if you do not buy it. I have the needed ammo and brass.
