SN 6506. This rifle would be a centerpiece in any collection. The left side of the action is engraved with Diana the Huntress, a stag, dogs, small game and a small boy coming out of the woods. The right side of the action shows a family of deer in the forest. Both sides are bordered in gold inlays. The quality of the fabulous engraving is far beyond what was being produced in the U.S. at that time. The front and rear sights are correct while the bbl sight is missing. The buttstock and forearm have full coverage carving in a foliate style. The bbl is stamped with a “V” which indicates the rifle was made before the proof laws of 1891. The top of the bbl has Stiegele’s name inlaid in different shades of gold and platinum. An inlaid deer at the muzzle end is absolutely incredible in lifelike detail. The bbl is still chambered for an early cartridge, probably the 9.5x47R. Most have been relined to 8.15x46R. The bbl is fluted in a deluxe rarely found style and is 30″ long. This exact rifle is featured on the cover of the December 2001 issue of Gun Report. A centerpiece for any collection. PROVENANCE: Classic German Target Arms pgs. 64-67. The Allen Hallock Collection. CONDITION: Overall in very fine condition. The stock has a few minor dings & dents from handling. The bore is excellent. The blue on the bbl is in excellent condition. One small dent is on the underside of the bbl. 50900-16 TWR (10,000-15,000) – Lot 2003
