whats interesting about this the 3 feet or Mannlicher Schönauer claw mount is in this case a 4 feet mount with two claws on the rear feet - never see this before







My 1922 proofed M1910 Take Down Model wears a Gerard 'B' scope on claw mounts with two 'feet' in front, two at rear. It was on the cased MS when Grand Dad bought it second hand at Colombo, Ceylon, 1930 or 31.

A couple of images from my computer's 'stash':



On M1900 MS with 'early' magazine release:


The mounts vary widely and were produced a century ago by guild shops and custom gunsmiths, often by hand filing and drilling. There was no sort of 'standard model' for claw mounts. Each was a 'custom' installation. Catches varied, some tipped toward the front for removal, some to the rear.


'Sniper' mount for M98 Mauser:



Modern made Alan Rohne mounts:







'Vienna Snappers' were often crafted with a 'one legged' rear mount, as were / are some claw mounts:




New England Custom Guns mount for M1950 MS with 'one legged' rear:





Stoeger, 1939. The Mauser is shown with claw mounts, the MS with a 'Vienna Snapper':




'Factory' scope mounting was, in the pre - WW2 era, performed at guild shops post - manufacture.

A bit over the top for my taste but, would be fitting for a Kaiser.

I have two of these, one in 8 X 57I and with the military type magazine and the other a Haenel/Rasch in 9 X 57 with what I assume to be a Rasch designed magazine follower/floorplate. It's quite intricate and well made.

I have really come to admire this action, whether with the staggered magazine or the en-bloc style of magazine. It's ALMOST as smooth as the somewhat later Mannlicher/Schoenauer combination, and that's saying something.

I agree with JDL, that's quite a rifle but a little too much for a retired electrician from the Ozarks.....even though I am mostly Prussian......

I think they did somethings wrong when the rifle was changed for the 8x57IS in 1992. the rifle is now to much with this gloss finish, sure it don't look like this when new.
every part polished white now was bluing then or colour cases hardened. the ugly tip on the stock makes no sense at all and I bet it was done in 1992. I see there a tip made from horn maybe lost sometimes because the glue dont make it over the century.
who ever did it had the ability to polish the magazine white for nothing but was not able to fix the broken locations on the stock left and right of the action.
this is in the end an example of wrong and to much restore, would have been better they were using the time to fix the small things on the stock.

such higher grade guns, when original, never look like they are to much

So I wonder would a rifle like this been the basis of the great 8x64mm that Herr Brenneke designed?
Would the M88 have a long enough magazine, or was it only every made in a Mauser action?
I see it went for over $1000 Euro, would that have been a bargain for a rifle such as this?

I can try it tomorrow but dont think the magazine is long enought for a 8x64 and unlike the Mauser magazine you can't extent it with little tricks.

M 88 hunting rifles are known in 7x57, 8x57, 9x57 and one in 10,75x57 or 10,75x61

something is not right with this short rifle /sporter, maybe the barrel was shortened before it got a new proof in 1991 http://www.sar-shop.de/epages/61028398.s...B%201783/%2018"
