German 8.5mm Schutzen Rifle

Haenel Original Aydt falling block action Schutzen rifle, circa 1900. Barrel is 28 1/2″ octagon with a pristine bore. It is equipped with period target sights and a hooked butt plate. The chambering is unknown and a chamber cast will be required but the bottom of the barrel is marked “8.5″ and it is quite possibly chambered for the 8.5x46R—an extremely common chambering for rifles of this type and vintage. The top of the the action is engraved: “Haenel Original Aydt,” in gold lettering. The barrel is inscribed: “Joao Matuscheck, Porto Alegre” and refers to a firearms importer in the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre. From the 1870s through the early 1900s, this area of Brazil experienced a large influx of German immigrants. So, this rifle has a colorful history having been imported from Germany to Brazil, and then made its way to the United States. The gun has two minor faults: 1. The left forearm escutcheon is missing two screws and 2. The right side of the stock has a 3″ scrape in the finish. Other than that, it is in great condition and would make a superlative addition to anyone’s collection. And, for the asking price, it’s a good investment as Schutzen rifles are growing scarcer each year. Don’t miss this one! $1,195
