*FINE OLD STAHL MARTINI.

SN 930. Cal. 8.15x46R. The Stahl Martinis were quite popular but just a few were made in this quality. The action is a take down and is engraved on one side with the Schuetzen Liesl and a cherub; the other with an old-time target shooter holding an ancient rifle and another cherub holding a bow. The bottom of the action is engraved with the owner’s family coat-of-arms. The bottom of the trigger guard has an indecipherable monogram of the owners initials. Correct front and rear sights are present but the bbl sight is missing. The bbl is 29-1/4″ long and gold inlays and a cherub inlaid in platinum are just in front of the action on the top of the fluted bbl. The buttstock is of unusually fine wood and beautifully carved. The left side is carved in deep relief with flowers, vines and leaves. Also on top of the bbl is the retailer’s name “D.A. Nohascheck Mainz”. The right side shows a lady in clothing from the middle ages holding a goblet. The buttstock was made for a left handed shooter. The forearm end is horn polished bone. PROVENANCE: Classic German Target Arms pages 38-41. The Allen Hallock Collection. CONDITION: Overall in fine condition. The buttplate shows most of its orig bright case color, the colors on the action have faded. The bore is to be excellent. Close inspection shows both sides of the forearm have had replacement wood inserted where the orig wood was split away. 50900-11 TWR (2,000-5,000) C&R – Lot 2011
