A customer traded this rifle to us which appears to be a Mauser “Afrika” Model in 8x60S. The rifle is in good condition and has a single square bridge with claw mounts and set triggers. There is no scope supplied with it.

It seems to be the wooden hand guard version as described in Speed’s book. The serial number 112300 also appears in the book and is listed as a Model B square bridge in 8x60. All numbers match.The factory butt plate has unfortunately been replaced with a more recent rubber pad.

I was wondering if any of our members could assist in estimating it’s value?

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
