BRITISH Enfield No.4 Mk.2 bolt-action rifle # A18305 (.303 British) mfg. by Fazakerly in 1955.  Excellent-PLUS condition, basically a new "Irish-contract" rifle that was unwrapped from cosmoline, cleaned, and maybe fired a few times. Perfect mirror-bore, new-looking metal and wood, with scarce L-marked (long) butt. All-matching numbers (including magazine), as nice as is obtainable for these. PHOTOS . . . $750.     C&R   SOLD

COLOMBIAN Model 47 bolt-action rifle # 5752-58 (.30-06), mfg. by Madsen in 1958. Excellent-PLUS condition, with 99% or better original black-painted finish, bore is mirror-perfect.

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.

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 rifle # 6790n (8x57) mfg. by Walther (code ac) in 1944.   Excellent condition, a Russian-capture that was given to the East German police (VOPO) with its sunburst property mark on the left side of the receiver. Reblued over original phosphate-finish and really sharp intact Nazi markings.   This rifle has an exceptional mirror-bore and is a fantastic, totally functional shooter.   Most small parts electro-penciled to match (bolt-carrier re-stamped 6790 to match with aye-code K43 black-painted magazine, original sight-hood and cleaning-rod.  Laminated buttstock has clear Nazi eagle on left side with a few dings and handling-marks, 6790 stamped on bottom of stock. A very attractive example.  PHOTO . . . $2850.    C&R    SOLD

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   

SWEDISH Model 94 bolt-action Mauser carbine # 70389 (6.5x55) mfg. by Carl Gustaf in 1916. 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   

A nice and rare Model 41 Swedish sniper

SWEDISH Model 41 SNIPER rifle # 61935 (6.5x55) mfg. by Carl Gustaf in 1900This is not one of the more common 41B snipers, the difference being (a) the bolt is in the white like a regular 96 rifle, but with a bent handle, (b) rear-sight is of the 96 type, (c) the stock-disc is of the two-screw unit-type, and (d) used a AGA m/42 or  AGA m/44 3x65 scope in a Jackenroll upper and lower mount that were numbered and are (unusually) matching on this rifle. (see Kehaya & Poyer, The Swedish Mauser Rifle, pages 173-175).   Excellent condition, with 90% or better bluing and a near-perfect mirror-bore.  All-matching numbers (including both lower and upper scope mounts) except cleaning rod (as usual). Stock-disk reads KIK / I16 / No.177.  Stock and handguard are of  walnut with straight figure only a few contact-marks from adjacent rifles and some old rust on buttplate. Rare 1944-dated AGA 3x65 scope (number 166) has a three-post reticule and quite decent optics, front of both mounts numbered 935 to match rifle. Original non-refurbished Swede snipers are quite rare, not import-marked. PHOTOS . . . $2650.    C&R    SOLD
