     FRENCH Model 1884 Kropatchek bolt-action short-rifle # F33768 (11x59R French Gras) mfg. by St. Ettienne in 1885.  Excellent condition with an extremely strong and bright bore. Metal has full bluing that is turning to plum in a few minor spots, no matching numbers (as usual for these), mechanically completely functional with 6-shot tubular magazine (having a working cut-off) and original leather sling as well as a very scarce and correct 1884-dated bayonet and scabbard. Wood is sound, cleaning rod I believe is a reproduction (but correct for this rifle, and ONLY this rifle).  Extremely rare, very few of these survive and most collections lack a specimen in ANY condition (much less one as attractive as this example).  Not import marked, and worthy of the finest collection!  PHOTOS . . . $2850.   Antique, no FFL required 

     GERMAN Model G-43 Walther semiautomatic SNIPER rifle # 8989i (8x57) mfg. by Walther (code ac) in 1944 with original zf4 scope.  Very Good, with 70% or better original phosphate-finish (which is thinning on barrel and band). A "bringback" from WWII (the buttstock has been "duffle-cut" ands expertly repaired 4" from buttplate). This rifle has an exceptional mirror-bore and is a fantastic, totally functional shooter.   Matching bolt-carrier (these are almost always mismatched) with aye-code K43 black-painted magazine, original sight-hood and cleaning-rod.  Laminated buttstock was sanded when repaired with very few handling-marks since. Scope mount not original to this rifle (eagle/214 proof) though crudely stamped 8989, scope band-springs the usual reproductions (the originals having fallen apart long ago, along with nearly all others). Very tough to come by these days.  Not import-markedPHOTO . . . $4950.   C&R

Excellent condition, at least 90% external bluing with near-perfect mirror-bore, all-matching numbers except end-cap and barrel-band, no provision for bayonet. I believe this to be a restoration of a previously sporterized M94 carbine, the buttstock is a professionally cut-down beech M96 rifle stock with ill-fitting buttplate but well done with convincing sling slot added. Has soldered muzzle extension (required for importation before 1986).  Not import-marked and quite attractive. PHOTO . . . $725.   C&R

Rear sight is of the M/55 micrometer type. Very lovely Beech stock & handguard has only a few minor handling-marks, scratches and compressions. Includes front sight-hood and used Swedish military rifle sling. Incredible condition for a rifle that is 113 years old. PHOTOS . . . $2350.  C&R
