This has sat quietly in a cabinet for quite some time. I need to decide to either stick with the same calibre Schoenauer I currently use or swap them out. Though now listed, live and for sale I am still undecided. This is another ‘ sleeper ‘ with very little sign of use but it’s also just one of those guns that feels ‘right’ as soon as you pick it up.
If you know what I mean by that then great…. if you dont I dont have enough words to explain !
It IS a little gem.
Originally commissioned by a Derbyshire Estate owner as a gift for his son’s 21st birthday unfortunately he hadno interest in shooting. Consequently the rifle was sold, finding its way to me, via that buyer.
