have more polar beers for you


Wilhelm Dege, leader of the "Operation Haudegen" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Haudegen


sailors of U 307 with a polar bear shoot on Svalbard september 1944



a member of "Haudegen" with a reindeer shoot on Svalbard, probably Rudolph



members of "Haudegen" had this hunting guns on Svalbard

1 Rifle Mauser Kaliber 8 × 57 IS
1 Drilling with scope Fa. Sauer & Sohn Kaliber 9,3 × 74R 16/70
1 Double Gun Fa. Sauer & Sohn
1 22. Rimfire Rifle

the english wikipedia site is wrong, Haudegen was allways in contact with the british forces in Norway after the war and continued to radio weather data daily until they were pick up by the norwegian sealer boat "Blaasel".

Some good guns in that lot! A Mannlicher Schoenauer, Savage 99, pinfire (or is it percussion?) shotgun (i think?) and a nice mauser sporter

I notice the mas 36 in 7x57 or 7x54





did you know how long the original 7x57 Mas was legal in france? it seems this model is very hard to find today.

It's a 7x54 MAS Fournier.
Mr. Fournier, at Hery sur Alby, Haute-Savoie, was a National 300m shooter and a gunsmith who make a job in rebarelling MAS 36 in 7mm/284" and chambering them for his own wildcat, the 7x54 Fournier that was a light modification of the 7,5x54 original round.
The 7x57, as all other army cartridges (30-06, 8x57, 6,5x54, 303...) is legal in France from September 2013. Now, the only forbidden cartridges are the .233 NATO, the 7,62x39, the .50 and 13mm Russian.

have heard the 7x57 Mauser was for some years legal after the war and that was the reason MAS made the 7mm barrels for this round. must have been a short period maybe because the bureaucracy made a mistake. Fournier rechamber rifles original made by Mas and build new ones from the stock he got from this maker but all were 7x57 in the beginning so there must have been a reason beside of selling it in the colonys were it was allways a legal hunting cartridge.
have heard at least of one rifle still in the original 7mm mauser chamber so they exist.

Lancaster,
You are right, seems these calibers were “free” until 1956.
Like you I have heard about 7x57 MAS rifles and I remind, when I was a boy (a long time ago…) dreaming on a catalog from MAS with pictures of the MAS36 commercial versions offered in 7x57, 8x60S and 10,75x68.

was probably this page you were daydreaming



the 10,75x68 Mas got my attention some years ago so I am working as a truffel pig. if you dont have seen this I have a little thread and is maybe the best about this rifles you find in the net.
http://forums.nitroexpress.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=218029&page=0&fpart=1&vc=1

thank god I have such a rifle now so I can focus on the next problems

today is world cats day and so I stumple over the iberian lynx https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iberian_lynx




the iberian lynx is called in german "Pardelluchs" and the "pardel" is the same like in Leopard or Gepard (german name for Cheetah) coming from the old greek pŕrdos the name of the persian provins Parsis, today Fars
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fars_Province
were such spooted cats were common in the ancient world.
the iberian lynx was probably a rare bycatch on driven hunts in the old days













http://www.cuadernosdecampo.es/Website/FichasOrganismos/FichaOrganismo.aspx?keyIDOrganismo=421


you find the iberian lynx also on one of my favourite drawings, Francisco de Goyas capriccio no. 43 "the sleep of reason produce monsters" what you can also translate as "the dream of the reason produce monsters" what give it a complete different turn

Love these pics. So interesting to see the rifles, clothes, dogs and the animals. That pic with the Bear who is sitting in the middle among all men is fantastic!

I notice it years ago that there is a hound on the painting "Summer Evening at Skagen Beach – The Artist and his Wife" by P.S. Krřyer




https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_Evening_at_Skagen_Beach_%E2%80%93_The_Artist_and_his_Wife

and unlike all modern peace loving, crack smocking and gun hating artist colony's the so called Skagen painter https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skagen_Painters
had a good sense for hunting like you can see on this old pics of the painter Laurits Tuxen

Enjoyed seeing the great many photos and scans posted. Haven't seen the last lot of lancaster posts before. Very interesting to see these. Will have to have a more careful re-look at them.
