Quote:A Nazi gerbil maybe?
I have a model 1903 Manlicher Schoenauer. When I did a detailed strip and clean I found a bunch of shredded newspaper type material in the butt stock cartridge trap and cleaning rod holes, I guess to keep things from rattling when those items where in place though they where missing from my rifle.
I spread out all of the pieces of shredded paper and found that it pieced together to make the front page of a May, 1943 German (NAZI) trade publication in the iron mongers industry. I had the pieces laminated so that it can be kept with the rifle when I eventually sell it.
Someday I will photograph it and the rifle.
