Don't remember if I've shown this rifle before.  It's old, 8mm J rifle made I was told by those who know such things, made in 1910-11.  I got it with the sights on it.  Bluing is old, maybe not as blue as it once was, but even and not speckled at all.  Lots of information on the metal, as was the practice in Germany at that time.

The buttstock, on the right side, has the last 4 of the SN applied in some way I'm not familiar with...not stamped and not raised above the finish...never seen that before, but it indicates the stock is original to the rifle.  Takes a .318 bullet, which are a bit hard to find.

It's lightweight and kicks, even when downloaded.

Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
