    The gun is in a wonderful condition and I cannot imagine that there will be any issues shooting it

    The rear peep sight flips down so that you can utilize the express sights

    The express sights has 2 flip down blades marked 150 and 300 yards respectively, leading me to assume that the peep was used as the primary 100 yard sight

    I should have paid closer attention to the original description. That is correct - if this is in fact a .375 rimless, it is, in effect, a 9x57 MS (Mannlicher Schoenauer). It will be a superb boar or red stag rifle - what it would have been created to hunt. It would also be fine as a PG rifle within its range limitations. It would not be effective anywhere, or legal most places for DG. Though with good optics, it would be fine for leopard. Ammunition will be a challenge.

    The .375 Rimless Nitro Express is the same as the 9.5x57 Mauser/9.5 x56 Mannlicher Schönauer (same die sets).

    This specific gun is marked as 375 Magnum 2.85” thus a 375 H&H Belted Magnum

    After further inspection the rifle carries a London proof mark- the V with a crown over top as well as the Birmingham proof mark of BNP with crown that was adopted post 1954

    What do you guys think? Was the gun reproofed?
