visit a Funk /Suhl collector
      #316340 - 13/05/18 04:32 PM

I had the pleasure to visit Peter, a danish collector and hunter who specialised in guns of the small but honourable firm of Funk in Suhl. it was an impressive example whats possible if you are able to concentrate yourself on a special topic and work for this over decades.

all guns here are made from Funk and if you watching the market you know that this name dont pop up every day.





on the right side a 12 ga Funk hammergun, the shotgun of Peters grandfather and starting point of this collection







the signal pistol was a WW 1 production





looks like M 98 with a M 88 stock magazin for the M 88 en-bloc clip



because the M 98 is without a scope it seems that this magazine was made for using the 8x57 on M 98 clip
never see this before




most Funk mauser rifles have the 1000 meter tangent side






coming from the Funk family a most envied book




starting in 1834 its the order book hand written over the 1830s



we can only assume how many papers like this were destroyed in the storm of the times











a 8x57IR double rifle made for a swedish industrialist in the 1920s






















Peter have a very well made website and allways an strong interst for all things about this maker. he have a data list about Funk guns too and will be happy about all data for Funk guns anywhere in the world.
