Offering for sale my Heym 8.15x46r Schutzen rifle. Quite a fancy old rifle with a 30” barrel. Bore and mechanicals are good. A few notable wood imperfections, please see photos. Very accurate rifle. The 8.15x46r can be made from common 30-30 cases. I do have some custom loads I will offer to the buyer reasonably priced. This gun is from the early 1900s and very solid. Please make sure your ffl accepts shipments from individuals.

I would take $2000 and offer FREE shipping to your ffl.

I have history on this site, gunsinternational, and gunbroker under prairie bird gun.

Extraordinary engraving.
 
These guns shoot very well, mine likes 150gr- 190gr hard cast gas checked. Like he mentioned, 30-30 brass works, it is a little short, but doesn't seem to matter. These are 200M off hand rifles. I wish I could afford this one to add to my collection.
