Caliber : .240 H&H Apex Magnum
A very nice Mauser .240 Apex stalking rifle made circa 1925 and originally mounted with an ALDIS Brothers – Birmingham 3x scope.
In 1954 a new 24″ “Hikro” Vickers high quality steel barrel was fitted at the factory.
The 98′ Mauser action has been given the usual H&H modifications at the bolt shroud and holed lever and the H&H quick detachable side mount bears also a S&B “Wetzlar” 1,5-6×42 R4 scope whereas the trigger has been changed for a Canjar single stage, certainly at the same time of the new barrel fitting.
All the parts are deep blue-black slow rust finished except the screws and garnish left color case hardened.
The 14” LOP stock, made of nice French walnut, is very classic with a slim red butt pad and a short forend, black horn capped.
The rifle is presented in its original canvas and leather case, with labels and accessories.
Indeed, we guarantee perfect accuracy and smooth performance.
7lbs 3oz net weight & 8lbs 7oz scoped with the S&B
