Very nice rifle vette447 looking forward to seeing what else you are thinning out of your collection!?!I am selling a few more select rifles out of my personal collection. This one is a very fine Custom Mauser Express rifle in 7x57 Mauser. This rifle was purchased from the, now long gone, Fine Gun Room at the Bass Pro Shops in Dallas several years ago. The salesman thought that it may be a Duane Wiebe but it is not marked with any maker info so I can’t be certain who made it. What I am certain of is that it is a 100% top quality, first class build.
This rifle is built on a 1909 Argentine Mauser action with Berlin address. Many consider this to be the top original Mauser action for a custom build. In addition, this rifle features a quarter rib express sights with one folding rear and banded front gold bead sight. The 22” barrel features a barrel banded front sling swivel with the rear swivel in the stock. The stock is gorgeous English walnut with attractive dark streaking throughout and carved to a perfect slim feel in the hand. It features fine line checkering (appears 26 LPI). The inletting and checkering is impeccable. It has a checkered steel buttplate and hinged drop metal magazine with push button inside the triggerguard. It also features a custom Talley style quick detachable scope mount system and M70 style two position safety shroud for use with the scope. The scope installed and included is a Swarovski Z3 3-9x36mm with duplex reticle.
LOP is 14-1/8" to the end of the steel buttplate and weight is 8.5 lbs scoped. Overall the rifle is in Exc/VG+ condition showing only some wear on the metal and handling marks on the wood but having been fired very little. I have hunted whitetail as well as plains game in Africa with this rifle and I can tell you it is a sweet shooter and just feels excellent in the hand. Sleek lines and great handling. This is an exceptional example of a smaller bore plains game rifle in the classic British Express style. You will not be disappointed.
Price is $5,000 plus actual shipping to your FFL. I can accept cashier’s checks for payment.
