This is an absolutely gorgeous, highly engraved, ornate rifle. This is by far the nicest of this type of firearm I have ever been privileged to own, or see. I can not find much of a history on the firearm. When I purchased it I was told their grandfather shipped it home from Nazi Germany. Unfortunately I do not have the sights or the ram rod. The wood has been refinished a long time ago – an excellent job. The rifle is perfectly balanced. On the top of the barrel inlaid in platinum I am told is the angel of good accuracy. The name on the rifle is (and one of the very few marks on the firearm) M. Bauriedl Kempton. By having the chamber checked, the caliber appears to be 8.15x46R. On the left side of the receiver, in deep engraving is a renaissance man with a rifle shouldered. He is wearing what could be armor and a large sleeved shirt. Also a hat with a large feather. There are flowers engraved all the way around him. The underside of the rifle is engraved the demon of inaccuracy – or so I am told. There is a proof mark on the underside of an eagle – that looks Austrian – a crown with a U below it. Engraved on the right side of the receiver is a man holding his rifle while drinking a tankard of beer. Or it could be water if we were politically correct. The stock has been repaired. There have been some hairline cracks. Whoever did the stock work was a true master. This is truly a work of art. One that would make anyone proud to have it in his gun collection. The hand engraved metal was also done by a true master engraver. I have seen many Schuetzen rifle in my 40 years in the gun business, but never one this ornate. There is also, on the right side of the rifle towards where the barrel is seated, a crown with a B underneath and a crown with a U underneath. The barrel is fluted, the bore is excellent.
