This has sat quietly in a cabinet for quite some time while I decide if to stick with the Schoenauer I currently in thie same caliber or use this instead. I am still undecided as this is not only another ‘ sleeper ‘ with little signof use but also is just one of those guns that feels ‘right’ as soon as you pick it up.
Ifyou know what I mean by that then great…. if you dont I dont have enough words to explain !
It IS a little gem.
From memory it was commissioned by a Derbyshire Estate owner as a gift for his son’s 21st birthday. Unfortunately the son was not that interested in shooting and subsequently the rifle was sold, finding its way to me, via that buyer.
