Mod. 1903 Lang Stutzen
Category : C
Caliber : 6,5x54 MS
A very exceptional Mannlicher-Schönauer mod.1903 made by Österreichischen Waffenfabrik-Gesellschaft in Steyr and proofed in Vienna in 1924.
This 23" barrel special "lang stutzen" rifle was delivered to GLASER in Zurich, which equipped it with a very rare Carl ZEISS "Zielmulti" scope, one of the very first 1-4x magnification optics produced in Jena since 1922.
This scope, in perfect optical and mechanical condition, bears a N°1 variant reticle and is fitted to the rifle with a quick removable specific claw mount of extreme quality of execution.
In order to take advantage of the optic performances this mod.1903 is equipped with a quick removable comb whose ingenious fixing system ensures steady attachment without any play.
The rifle is stocked in the long stutzen style and the wood is an excellent quality beautiful European walnut. The LOP is 14¼", measured on the original trapped steel butt plate.
The action combines the Mannlicher bolt to the famous Schönauer rotary five shots magazine and benefits from the traditional German double set trigger.
This superbly balanced Schönauer weighs 7lbs-2oz, 3lbs-7oz fitted with the removable comb and 8lbs-7oz with the "Zielmulti" scope mounted.
Its state of preservation is absolutely exceptional, the whole retaining all original untouched finish, with a superb bore and smooth operation.
The almost unaltered bluing on the bolt head is evidence of moderate use and of an extremely reduced number of shots.
The rare ZEISS scope is in as faultless condition as the rifle; flawlessly clear with all the controls for magnification, focus and adjustment effortlessly soft and functional.
