*MAGNIFICENT SCHMIDT & HABERMANN MARTINI.

SN NSN. Cal. 8.15x46R. A less ornate rifle, beautifully made of the very best materials. This Martini design is uncommon. The stock wood is of an extra high quality, but has been refinished and the checkering cleaned up. One side is engraved in an unusual and pleasing design of a man running. The other side shows a shooter in the offhand position. No carving is on this rifle but it is not needed as it is such an elegant design. Both scenes are surrounded by the finest quality engraving. The oct bbl is 29.25″ long with a perfect bore. The bbl has, at the breech end, numerous intricate inlays. The sights are orig to this rifle. The end of the bbl has some tasteful inlays and it is also full length matted. The rear sight is correct for the rifle as is the front and bbl sights. PROVENANCE: Alte Scheibenwaffen Vol. 2 pg. 147; Classic German Target Arms pages 32-33. The Allen Hallock Collection. CONDITION: Overall very good as wood appears to have been refinished by a talented professional. It appears that a support peg is behind the checkering as well as a repaired crack—hard to detect. There is a small chip where the stock adjoins the lower tang. The bbl blue appears excellent. When the stock was made there was a flaw in the stock blank that and patched and very good light is needed to detect it. 50900-9 TWR (2,500-5,000) C&R – Lot 2010
