*CLASSIC KESSLER MARTINI SCHUETZEN.

SN 18684. Cal. 8.15x46R. Another of the endless varieties of Martinis. This variant can be easily identified by the “wedge” fitted into the bottom of the action toward the front. The action is nicely relief engraved with very lifelike deer in panels on both sides with a stippled background. The buttstock is nicely carved with a tiny chip where it joins the action. The forearm, also carved, shows 2 expertly fitted and hard to detect patches. The bbl is browned and marked “8.15×46 Norm.” on the underside. The top is matted full length. This rifle remains in very fine condition with a limited amount of tasteful stock carving and nice engraving of a classic design on the action. The full oct bbl is 31.25″ long. The rear sight appears to be a correct style replacement, the front sight is correct; the bbl sight is missing. The front trigger is odd in that it appears reversed. The trigger guard is nicely engraved with a monogram of the owner’s initials which may be “HLK”. Proof date June 1914. PROVENANCE: Classic German Target Arms pgs. 22-24. The Allen Hallock Collection. CONDITION: The rear sight appears to be a replacement of the correct style. The front sight is correct, while the bbl sight is missing. Bore condition is excellent. Small chip in buttstock. Small wood repairs in forearm. 50900-31 TWR (1,500-3,000) C&R – Lot 2013
