**CHAUCHAT MODEL 1915 MACHINE GUN (DEWAT C&R).

SN CSRG 26230. Cal. 8mm Lebel. 21″ bbl with flash hider marked “Sidarme” on left side of receiver with manufacturers star logo in addition to C.S.R.G. that stand for Chauchat, Sutter, Ribeyrolles and Gladiator which are the manufacturers. Upper and lower assemblies have matching SN’s. This design was rushed into production in 1915 due to the perceived immediate need for an automatic rifle following the opening of WWI. Eventually, over 244,000 were manufactured by 1918 in 8mm Lebel. This is a slow firing machine gun with a long recoil travel making it difficult to control when prone and behind the gun. Arguably, it is more effective in it’s intended role of providing walking fire while troops were advancing. One orig mag included along with collector grade publication Honour Bound The Chauchat Machine Rifle. This specimen has been de-activated by having the chamber welded shut with metal weld and the bolt has been removed. Detent pin is a very firm fit. Mag release & safety/selector all move properly. Charging handle is frozen in the rear position. This weapon is de-activated and non-functional. This is a National Firearms Act item and requires BATF approval prior to transfer. This weapon is fully transferable on an ATF form 5 as Curio & Relic eligible as a deactivated tax-exempt transfer. This weapon may be re-activated on an ATF form 1 upon application and approval by BATF. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is very good with over 80% of orig blue finish remaining turning to a brown patina on the flat sides of the receiver plates with more of a bare metal patina on the bipod legs near the swivel points with remains of gray paint on balance of legs. Wood is very solid and serviceable with numerous dings, chips and gouges. Mag appears fully serviceable and also a pleasing gray patina on right side with more finish remaining on left side “SA” visible on left side indicating this mag was at one time in Finnish service. Weld has completely filled chamber and onto chamber face, unable to determine condition of bore due to this fact. 8mm Lebel ammunition is currently readily available and with some work and the appropriate parts, this weapon could likely be returned to a functioning status. Even as is, it is a nice display piece from the WWI era. 51385-1 JWK704 (2,000-3,000) C&R – Lot 3003

*EXTREMELY RARE THIRD VARIATION ZERO-SERIES P-38 WITH BOX.

SN 02558. Cal. 9mm. Extremely rare early zero-series P-38 as seen in figure 4-4, p. 217 of Buxton’s book “The P.38 Pistol”. This is one of only just over 2500 pistols produced between January and April 1940. It has notable features such as rectangular firing pin head, thin rear sight, thick safety lever, a checkered takedown lever, and a thicker slide (top to bottom). This is the last variation of the pistols that fall within the experimental range, and it retains the correct scalloped grip for lanyard loop. Many of this variation pistol went to line troops in Eastern Europe and in Scandinavian countries, and saw hard use with a low survival rate. Mag is only 4 digits off (SN 02554). Walther proof marks on right side of slide and left side of frame with Walther banner. SNs match between bbl, slide, frame, hammer, and bbl lock. Orig covered box with orig oil bottle in Walther tin box and cleaning rod. PROVENANCE: The Esteemed Collection Of Noted Expert And Author Warren Buxton. CONDITION: Extremely fine, with high gloss blue finish turning to a bare metal at the forward edge of slide with some evidence of old clean pitting and loss of finish to high edges. Overall finish is about 85% thinning at high edges to grey metal. Bore is shiny and bright with some light frosting. Grips are in very fine condition. Correct orig commercial box is misnumbered with pencil “93” on cover but it is an orig box for this gun. Very few of this rare variation survive and to find one in this level of condition is remarkable. 51569-375 JWK121 (2,000-3,500) C&R – Lot 3086

*RARE CASED SET OF THE FIALA MODEL 1920 SINGLE SHOT REPEATING COMBINATION PISTOL.

SN 195. Cal 22 LR. Rare complete cased set of the Model 1920 pistol which includes the pistol receiver which is mounted with smooth 2-pc walnut grips. It has installed a 7-1/2″ tapered rnd bbl with adjustable rear sight. Left front side of the frame has the Fiala Arms name and trademark with the model number on the right front and the company name & address on the right rear. Right rear also shows “PATENTS PENDING”. Backstrap is dovetailed for the accompanying buttstock. Accompanied by an orig, purple velvet lined, black leatherette trunk case with handle & brass fittings. Interior is fitted for the pistol, an uncheckered, matching numbered walnut buttstock with silver-plated dovetailed brass attaching lug, a 20″ carbine bbl with smooth rnd forearm and a 3″ bbl, matching numbered with knurled exposed area. Case also contains 2 spare sights apparently to be used with the carbine bbl and a spare combination front sight, along with 2 functioning keys. Inside the lid has a diagonal ribbon embossed in gold “FIALA ARMS COMPANY, INC. / NEW YORK”. The design of this pistol is unique in that it has the appearance of what we know today as a semi-automatic. However it is unique in that the slide must be manually retracted which ejects the empty cartridge case and manually returned to battery which loads a fresh cartridge from the magazine. From the outside appearance it is fairly apparent that several well known semi-auto pistols owe their design to this pistol, including Hi-Standard & the Colt Woodsman. Complete case sets are quite rare. PROVENANCE: The Frank H. Wheaton, III Collection. CONDITION: Pistol is fine with the frame & slide showing about 65-70% strong orig blue with the front & backstraps mostly gray patina, 7-1/2″ bbl retains 99% plus orig blue, 20″ bbl retains about 99% blue and the 3″ bbl shows muzzle end wear. All 3 bbls have bright shiny bores. Buttstock is sound and retains virtually all of a fine restored finish. The attaching lug retains about 85% orig silver that has tarnished to dark patina. Case has a few nicks & scratches but is basically sound. Interior is lightly faded and soiled but completely intact. Spare sights are fine. 51517-76 JRL (5,000-8,000) C&R – Lot 3109

The New York Times pictured it and described it as a “colossal beaker” and the single most valuable prize of the festival having cost Ehret $1500.00. The trophy is 27″ tall, crafted of Sterling Silver with extensive gold plating. Enhanced by 5 colors of Cloisonné enamel. It weighs 168 Troy ounces and displays the American eagle, targets, crossed rifles, the American and Imperial German flags, hop vines, oak leaves and the ancient German brewers hexagram symbol. It rests on a turned black enamel hardwood base in its orig carved oak display cabinet with beveled glass on all sides and on the top. It was made by the Mauser Mfg. Co. of NY. The whole ensemble stands almost 6′ 4″ high. The trophy was won by Fred Schuster, a San Francisco shooter and brewer. Its history became unknown until it became the property of Sally Stanford, the cities illustrious madam and eventually Sausalito Mayor and restaurant owner. After her death it was auctioned off and Mr. Hallock tracked it down and was able to buy it. Accompanying this trophy is a Mettlach stein with George Ehret picture on it as well as a framed photo of Fred Schuster. PROVENANCE: The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: Wonderful condition. Close inspection is required to truly appreciate the workmanship. 50900-32 TWR (40,000-60,000) – Lot 3146

FABULOUS STAHL MARTINI SCHUETZEN RIFLE.

SN 11058. Cal. 8.15×46. This rifle has to be one of the finest Schuetzen rifles in existence. It is a superlative example of a top-of-the-line rifle made during the Golden Age. (1880-1900). The stock timber is of the very best quality and is extensively carved. The carving must be closely inspected to appreciate the masterful workmanship. A huge panel of deep relief carving is on the right side of the buttstock. It contains a cherub pointing out a hole in a target. The cherub is in an oval panel surrounded by an owl above and fantastically intricate scroll work in deep relief. The left side has a scene of shooters in traditional dress in a country setting. The forearm has a wonderful dogs head at the end and a great carving of a bearded man is on the underside. Several minor handling dents are found in the wood and there is a crack at the wrist. A good stock maker should be able to make these imperfections disappear. The fully engraved action has two large gold inlays on each side of a hunter and his dog. Again, The workmanship shown is so fine that it has to be closely inspected to appreciate it. On the top of the action, inlaid in gold, is the orig owners name “R. Schroeder Halle”. The bbl is 28-1/2″ long, is browned, not blued and is fluted. It is still in its orig obsolete caliber. The retailers name “Theodor Brauer” is inlaid in gold as well as what appears to be an Indian blowing a signal horn and holding a spear. The Indian inlay is probably platinum while he is surrounded by intricate scroll inlays in gold and platinum. There is “V” stamp present indicating that the rifle was made pre-1891 when the proof laws were instituted. The bbl is also fitted with a cleaning rod which is common on early rifles. The rear and front sight are present and is correct, the bbl sight is missing. PROVENANCE: “Alte Scheibenwaffen” Vol. 2 pgs 154-155; “Classic German Target Arms” pgs 46-49; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: Excellent condition with minor handling dings & dents.

TRULY EXTRAORDINARY STIEGELE MARTINI SCHUETZEN RIFLE BY LANG.

NSN. Cal. 8.15×46. The best guesses on this rifle are that Lane bought the rifle from Stiegele’s supplier or Lang bought it from Stiegele and had his name put on it. Whatever, it is a rifle exhibiting the very finest craftsmanship and ornamentation that it is possible to include on a rifle. The buttstock has full coverage of quality carving. On the right side in a large panel is a shooter and a target that is fantastic. The left side and cheek piece are also carved with a cherub and his bow & arrow surrounded by a foliate design. The forearm is also carved with the end being a dog’s head. The engraving on the action is in keeping with the superior quality of the rifle. It is interesting to compare the quality of this engraving with that produced by the best American engravers of the period such as Ulrich and Nimschke. The right side of the action shows Diana the Huntress and a lifelike dog. The left side shows a target boy, target and early shooter; again with very life-like figures. The bbl is 29″ long and stamped with a “V” indicating that it was made pre-1891 when the proof laws were enacted. It shows a very deluxe fluted style and is still chambered for the early cartridge. Most have been relined. The cartridge is possibly the 9.5x47R, but has not been checked. The top of the bbl is inlaid in gold “Andr. Lang Pfarrkirchen” (a town in Bavaria). His name is surrounded by two cherubs and fantastic inlays in both platinum and gold. The rear sight is correct as is the front sight, but one of the protective ears of the front sight is broken and missing. This rifle is a true showpiece. PROVENANCE: “Alte Scheibenwaffen” Vol. 2 pgs 212-213; “Classic German Target Arms” pgs. 56-59; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: Extremely fine. Some case colors remain on the action. Buttstock shows very minor dents, etc. from handling. Bbl blue is very good. As mentioned the front sight has one ear broken off. Bore is excellent. 50900-14 TWR (10,000-15,000) – Lot 3148

STIEGELE MARTINI SCHUETZEN RIFLE PRESENTED BY HIS MAJESTY LUDWIG II.

SN 5017. Cal. 8.15×46. This early Stiegele also has some interesting history. On the cheek piece is an ornate silver inlay which reads “Ehrengabe Sr. Majestat Ludwig II v. Bayren zum 700 jahr.” This translates to “Honor gift of his Majesty King Ludwig II of Bavaria to the 700th Anniversary of Kelheim.” This rifle was donated to be the Honor Prize of the shooting match; a part of the festivities for the 700th Anniversary of the city Kelheim, celebrated in 1882.

The bbl is also fluted in a simple design. The orig front and rear sights are with the rifle. The bbl sight is missing. The action is profusely engraved on both sides, each with a fat cherub and their dogs with an owl. The underside of the action is engraved with Diana the Huntress.

*SPECTACULAR ENGRAVED AND CARVED TAKE DOWN HAENEL SCHUETZEN RIFLE.

SN 24408. Cal. 8.15 x 46R. An incredible rifle with 31.5″ oct. bbl with fluted flats and orig sights along with a wide and narrow gold band at the receiver. Top flat of the receiver is inlaid gold “Haenel Original Aydt”. The side flats of the receiver are engraved by Suhl master engraver Walter Holzbaum with full coverage deep engraved vignettes of a traditional Schuetzen scene on the right side depicting a shooter wearing traditional clothing and Tyrolean hat at the firing line getting ready to shoot. The scene is further detailed with 3 other shooters with steins, sitting at a table kibitzing the shooter. The entire vignette is executed in great, intricate detail with oak trees and leaves and a fine, dark stippled background. The left side details a Schuetzenfest participant with rifle over his shoulder, holding aloft a prize goblet. He is also dressed in typical 19th Century fest clothing with Tyrolean hat and medals on his jacket. The background is a very finely detailed forest scene. The rear 1/3 of the left side is engraved with the vignette of the painting of Professor Hermann Kaulback (1906), depicting the little boy (Scheiben Toni) in wooden shoes joyously marking a target with a center bullseye hit. The top flats and bottom of the receiver are engraved in oak leaf & acorn patterns. The take down levers and diopter sight base are engraved to match. The rifle is mounted with an elaborately carved walnut Schuetzen buttstock & forearm. The buttstock has a typical heavy Schuetzen cheek piece and is mounted with a short prong Schuetzen buttplate that is engraved to match the oak leaf patterns on the receiver. The area behind the cheek piece is deep relief carved with the vignette of a shooter with rifle over his shoulder embracing a young woman dressed in a dirndl, surrounded by an oak leaf & acorn wreath with fine stippled background. The right side of the buttstock is deep relief carved with the large parallel vignette of the same shooter holding his rifle in his right hand and a trophy wreath shooting prize aloft in his left. The bottom of the stock and the forearm are deep carved in ribbon and oak leaf acorn patterns. This cataloger has seen only three Aydt rifles of this quality in over 50 years of collecting. This rifle was proofed in 1927. PROVENANCE: “Alte Scheibenwaffen” Vol. 1 pgs 254-255; “Classic German Target Arms” pgs. 6-9; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: Wonderful condition. The bbl, forearm and buttstock exhibit almost all their orig blue finish. The buttstock has a very minor crack behind the tang and a couple of very small dents from handling. The engraved buttplate shows most of its orig case color. There are no apparent chips. Spectacular deep relief carving. Bore is excellent. 50900-4 TWR (8,000-12,000) C&R – Lot 3151

*SPECTACULAR SWISS MARTINI SCHUETZEN RIFLE.

SN 27941. Cal. 8.15x46R. Another variant of the Martini action which is quite similar to the Stiegele. It was retailed by Chr. Hoffacher of Munich who was known as a supplier of top-of-the-line firearms and probably was a direct competitor of Stiegele’s. The rifle exhibits just fabulous engraving and carving. Words don’t adequately describe the level of skill exhibited on this rifle. The action is engraved on the left side with a stag in flight, obviously at the end of his tether. On the right side are two boars. More life-like images would be hard to replicate, even with a photograph. The boars look like they could walk off the action’s side. This action has post 1891 proof marks stamped on it and was subject to proof January 1901. The buttstock is totally carved with one side showing a couple in traditional Bavarian dress with a country house in the background. The other side has almost total coverage with an oval with 2 roebucks surrounded by foliate carving by a true master. The rear stock swivel has small ivory inserts in the buttstock surrounding it. The forearm is finely carved in deep relief and has a dog’s head with glass eyes at the front, one of which is missing. Again, the carving is of the very best quality. The bbl is 32-1/4″ long with the top flat fully matted and gold inlays at the muzzle. The design of the fluting is complex and the very best style. The bbl has Hoffacher’s name ornately inlaid in gold and is surrounded by an incredible assortment of figures and scrolls in different colors of gold and platinum. A figure of Diana the Huntress in platinum is also included in the inlays. This is truly an exhibition grade rifle in fine condition. It was owned at one by John Amber, editor of the Gun Digest and was sold at his estate auction. This is another rifle that would be a centerpiece in any collection. PROVENANCE: “Alte Scheibenwaffen” Vol. 2 pgs 216-217; “Classic German Target Arms” pgs. 96-99; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection.

CONDITION: Incredibly fine with a couple of small handling marks on the cheek piece. One of the dogs glass eyes is missing. The bbl blue is almost all there. No apparent chips or major dents found in the stock wood. The front sight on this rifle appears correct but the rear is a replacement of the correct style.

EXTRAORDINARY KESSLER MARTINI SCHUETZEN RIFLE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY.

SN 6906. Cal 8.15x46R. Kessler Martinis are fairly common but in this quality exceptionally rare. Bbl 29-1/2″ fitted with a cleaning rod. There is what appears to be a spacer between the action and the bbl and there is a possibility that a new bbl was fitted during its period of use, as the style of the rifle appears to be earlier. The bbl sight is missing but the correct front and rear sights are present. The rear sight is engraved on the base to match the rifle’s engraving, it also has internal adjustments for various apertures. The action shows deep relief engraving of indescribable quality. It is more carved, in deep relief, than engraved. The bottom of the action depicts a hunter in traditional dress. The engraved trigger guard is inlaid with the owner’s initials in a gold ornate monogram. The bbl is fluted and made of Prima Kruppscher Flusstahl, a high quality Krupp bbl steel and marked with the retailers name “AD. Bieber Kronach”. Top of the bbl is fully matted. The right side of the buttstock is extensively carved with a shooter and a target boy holding up a winning target. The left shows a shooter in full Bavarian outfit, cheering a shot. The panel, in very deep carving, is surrounded by a mountain and country scene. Just superior carving throughout. The buttplate is nicely engraved with a winged cherub. PROVENANCE: “Classic German Target Arms” pgs. 26 -30; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: Bluing on the fluted bbl is excellent. The stocks are fine with no apparent chips or dents.

SPECTACULAR MARTINI GERMAN PATTERN SCHUETZEN RIFLE.

SN 10873. Cal. 8.15×46. Early rifle made in unidentified large cal, possibly 9.5 x 47R. Truly a mind-blowing rifle that defies an adequate description. Exceptional from one end to the other. There are so many variations of Martinis that even James Bond would be confused. Most are very similar externally and must be taken apart to determine which variation they are. This is the German style with the internal striker. This is truly an extraordinary rifle with the very best of embellishments. The buttstock is in fine condition with just fabulous deep relief carving, however small patches that were masterfully fitted to correct imperfections in the stock blank when the gun was made are discernible in the correct light. This is not uncommon in stocks with very fancy wood. The right side has an extensive panel with deep carved foliage surrounding a winged cupid with bow & arrows. The left side has 3 hunters (have to look closely for the third) in an eagle’s next with mountains, dead prey, baby eagles and an eagle in flight returning to the nest with a dead animal-all fantastic life-like detail. The forearms underside is a cupid with his bow & arrows and the carved end is the head of a shaggy dog. The engraving and inlays are so over-the-top they are difficult to describe. The dogs fighting the boar look like they might jump out of the metal. The stags are also incredibly lifelike. The compiler has seen two other rifles with similar engraving that he is pretty sure are by the same hand, unfortunately the engraver is unidentified. R. Saur is inlaid in gold on the top of the receiver and “Fr. Reitz Halle” is inlaid in gold on the bbl. Saur was probably the owner while Reitz, a well known gunsmith in his own right, was the retailer. A man, possibly an Indian, with a signal horn in one hand and a spear in the other is inlaid in the bbl just in front of the action. Several different colors of gold are used while the man is probably platinum. The Bbl is 32.5″ long and has small gold inlays at the muzzle end. Buttplate is finely engraved with gold inlaid borders. PROVENANCE: “Alte Scheibenwaffen” Vol. 2 pgs 80-81; “Classic German Target Arms” pgs 18-21; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: The overall condition of the rifle is very fine. The front sight appears correct, the bbl sight is missing while the rear sight is correct with two bands of gold inlaid and matching engraving. The bore appears excellent. Tiny chip in the forearm. Due to the lack of proof marks and the caliber we estimate this gun was made in the late 1880’s and remains in extraordinary condition. Two almost imperceptible repairs are in the wood just behind the trigger guard. 50900-7 TWR (8,000-12,000) – Lot 3154

*FOXY STIEGELE MARTINI SCHUETZEN RIFLE BY FAHNER.

SN 2642. Cal. 8.15x47R. Marked on bbl “Wilh. Fahner Suhl” who is believed to have been a supplier to Stiegele. This is fairly late Stiegele and the design is a bit more subdued than some of the earlier examples made during the Golden Age. The action is completely engraved with a life-like fox on the left side and a dog flushing a bird on the right. The majority of the bright orig case color remains on the action, which is most unusual. The engraving style is “Alt Suhl”, (old Suhl). The bbl is 30″ long, fluted and top flat is fully matted. It has “Whil. Fahner” and “Suhl” inlaid in gold. The buttstock’s carving is of an unusual and pleasing style. On the left side is a dead chamois that is about to be eaten by two vultures. On the right side is almost total coverage showing two hunters on a mountain watching 3 deer, one of which they just shot. This is a nearly new rifle of exhibition quality. This rifle was proofed August 1912. PROVENANCE: “Alte Scheibenwaffen” Vol. 2 pgs 214-215; “Classic German Target Arms” pgs. 60-63; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: There are a couple of minor cracks in the stock probably caused by stresses in the ornate wood used. They have been there a long time. The forearm shows a very small chip and attempted repair on the right side by the action as well as a small repair and replaced piece of wood where the orig wood split away. It is hard to detect. Bore appears excellent. 50900-15 TWR (7,000-10,000) C&R – Lot 3155

UNDERSTATED ELEGANCE SCHMIDT & HABERMANN MARTINI SCHUETZEN RIFLE.

SN 786. Cal. 8.15x46R. Plain but elegant and of high quality. The stock wood is quality timber which is unusual in most German Schuetzen rifles. The buttstock has nice carving, the left side shows, in deep relief a dog and a stag while the rest is checkered in a fine pattern. The other side of the stock shows deep relief carving of vines & flowers. The end of the forearm is also checkered with a carved dog’s head with glass eyes. The complete set of original sights are with the rifle. Front and bbl sights are of an intricate design. The action is a take down. It is engraved with the owner’s name, “Aug. Schumann” on one side and his home town, “Solingen” on the other. Both are inlaid in gold. The action has a tasteful inlaid gold border and most of the case color is still present. The bbl is fluted is 26.5″ long and the blue on it is in excellent condition. It has been relined which was a common practice in Germany to use a more modern cartridge. It was a lot less expensive to reline than replace the bbl. It also has some intricate gold inlay at the breech end as well as the retailer’s name “Chr Graessler Suhl”. What is almost never found is the original French fitted case that was made for the rifle. The case contains a cleaning rod and tip, muzzle and sight protector, sight key, a bullet seater, and an empty cartridge box. Missing is the bullet mold and re-decapper. A collector can go many years and not see another cased outfit. The simple, elegant design with the very best quality, excellent condition and the super rare orig case makes this a prime Schuetzen rifle for the collector. PROVENANCE: “Alte Scheibenwaffen” Vol. 2 pgs. 150-151; “Classic German Target Arms” pgs. 34 -36; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: Overall excellent. Wood has very minor handling marks. Case color is mostly there. Bore excellent. Blue on the bbl is excellent. 50900-10 TWR (4,000-6,000) – Lot 3156

CLASSIC VON SCHATZL MARTINI SCHUETZEN RIFLE WITH UNUSUAL FEATURES.

SN 187675. Cal. 8.15x46R. An unusual example of a Von Schatzl Martini. The rifle’s action has full coverage of engraving with a very intricate design in leaves, vines and flowers-masterfully done. The bbl is fluted and 32″ long which is unusually long for a Schuetzen rifle. It is marked “C. Bartels Konigl: Hofbuchsenmacher N Wiesbaden & Zella”. Bartels was a famous maker, Hofbuchsenmacher is a superior gun maker. There is a complex pattern of inlays on the barrel, just in front of the action, probably in platinum as well as a odd series of numbers from 1 to 18, which are probably sight settings. The buttstock is carved using the same foliate pattern that was used on the action’s engraving. The orig owner’s name is on a German silver plate inset into the wood. Notice how much simpler the design of the buttstock is compared to some of the other examples and is typical for early rifles. Close inspection shows a large section of the cheek piece different where a section of wood has been grafted on to change the shape of the cheek piece. The buttstock shows an unusual fiddle back pattern in the wood. The forearm is nicely checkered and carved. The end is finished with a great dog’s head with glass eyes. PROVENANCE: “Classic German Target Arms” pgs. 104-106; The Allen Hallock Schuetzen Collection. CONDITION: The front and bbl sights are missing. The rear sight is a replacement. A couple of significant dents are in the buttstock. A small chip is missing at the top of the cheek piece. The forearm is excellent with minor handling marks. The blue on the bbl shows slight wear.

*EXTRAORDINARILY RARE SPRINGFIELD ARSENAL MODEL 1922 HEAVY BARREL MATCH RIFLE.

SN 1248857. Cal. 30-06. Exceptionally rare rifle that, according to Lt. Col. William S. Brophy, on pg 114 of his book The Springfield 1903 Rifles he states that fewer than 80 of these rifles were manufactured. They were produced for and offered for sale by The Division of Civilian Marksmanship (DCM) only in 1922. Their cost was $71.34, which was an extraordinary amount of money for that time considering that most working men were earning less than $50 a week. This rifle is a standard Model 1922 with 24″ tapered extra heavy rnd bbl with integral front sight ramp containing a Lyman 17A globe front sight. Top of the bbl is mounted with target scope blocks that are about 6″ center to center. It is believed these scope blocks were originally for the Winchester Model A5 scope. Bottom of the bbl, about mid-point under the wood is stamped with the star-gauge number “J73 / 3202”. The receiver ring has standard Model 1903 markings and the rear bridge is mounted with a Lyman 48S receiver sight. Neither the receiver ring or rear bridge are drilled & tapped. Bolt body, handle & extractor are polished bright while the shroud, safety & striker are blued. Receiver rails are also polished bright as found on National Match rifles. Rifle is mounted in a Model 1922 1-pc target half-stock with period checkering on forestock and grip and has grasping grooves in the forestock with 2 reinforcing bolts and squared grip with M1922 checkered steel buttplate. Bottom of the butt and front band have standard 1903 sling loops. Front band is modified from a Model 1917 rifle similar to those found on the M1922 Sporter and 22 rifles. Trigger guard and floorplate are standard milled Model 1903 equipment. Pistol grip, and forend retain what appears to be orig checkering, which would be a feature of an “International”. Pg 114 of the above referenced publication has a picture of the U.S. Army Infantry 8-man rifle team which set a world record in the Herrick Trophy Match using the Model 1922 Springfield heavy bbl rifles. The Model 1922 heavy bbl Match rifle was only produced in 1922. Lt. Col. Brophy on pgs 112 & 113 of the referenced publication, states “in describing some of the ’03 variations and models, it is accurate and fair to call them rare. But after rare, what comes next? It could easily be the Model 1922 caliber 30 heavy barrel target rifle.” On pgs. 113 & 114 he also states “This rifle is so seldom encountered that only a few of the most serious collectors own an unaltered example —“. Accompanied by the March 2009 issue of U.S. Martial Arms Collector magazine where on pg 118-16 shows a chart that there were 70 Cal. 30 star-gauged heavy bbl rifles shipped to the NRA. CONDITION: Extremely fine. Bbl & receiver retain about 98% strong orig arsenal blue with only faint muzzle and sharp edge wear. Bolt body & handle retain most of their orig bright polish with the shroud, striker & safety showing slightly thin blue. Trigger guard & floor plate retain about 80% orig blue with the losses from flaking, not wear. Stock is sound with a few light nicks & scratches and retains virtually all of its orig oil finish, still with raised grain. Checkering is clean and excellent. Buttplate retains about 80-85% orig blue with wear only on the heel & toe. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore. 51466-1 (12,000-15,000) C&R – Lot 3218
