Hello everyone, well my father died a year ago and left me two German mausers that are well over a hundred years old. I've given up trying to get any information on them what so ever even with pics no one knows lol. How ever my dad did have a rifle that I'm trying to find one like it. heres what I know, it was a 22lr single shot, octagon barrel, rear trap door thumb breach"would eject the shell when you opened the breach with your thumb" , a gold or brass inlay ring at the tip of the barrel, also is was a heavy solid build rifle. Thats pretty much all I can remember about the rifle after 15 years. Thanks for any help and eventaking the time to read the post.
