Always wanted an example of a Mauser and have an old CZ-24 with wartime furniture. Has miles on it and its what i qas looking for.

Also have an old post war Brno 22f commercial rifle small ring mauser with full lebgth stock 8mm. This was somethingbi always wanted and its an amazing rifle with excellent metal and bluing and a non tapped reciever. It feels like a little wand. As much as i appreciate it i need to confess that i just dont use it mostly because im left handed and have left hand bolt actions and leverguns. It sad really

So if you had a nice old Brno 22 that never sees light of day would you get rid of it? Or would you keep it for having an example of an commercial mauser sporter? Im conflicted as i like the mauser style rifle but think someone might want to actually use one of these out there. Any suggestions?

Were I a lefty I would be shooting with a period Farquharson.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

I actually do have an Alex Henry. Does that count.

Hello OP!
Perhaps you can get the below on 'rush order' via FedEx overnight.

https://play.google.com/store/books...ss_Economics&gclsrc=ds&gclsrc=ds

OK, so pardon the above reference... Unable resist! And yes, I did check for an "Irresistible Impulse F/D" sequel for myself! smile

Now getting serious... Picture as worth a thousand words, if not available, questions seeming relevant.

Now my tech questions, as you're comfortable to answer.
1. What's the two digit year date on the left joining area of barrel and/or receiver?
2. Bolt with spoon handle or ball?
3. Bolt with traditional guide rib or without?
4. IF no guide rib, is the receiver bridge underside yet slotted for such?
5. Receiver bridge w/ clip guide and/or receiver hump?
5. What's the SN - less the last couple of digits using "x" place holders?
6. Does the rifle appear original? Condition issues?

Your answers may help others assess the originality/collectability for purpose of determining objectively "how dear", from such perspective.

These are great lightweight, quality rifles. An original of mine dated "48" SN 213xx in 7x57, pix below for comparison value.

Best & Stay Safe!

That looks just like mine. Exactly! My metal on mine is pristine, beautiful. Even the bolt handle has full bluing.

Im away from home at my mom's as my dad just died and we are dealing with finalities and funeral thinga at the moment. Ill be home probably Monday and get that info off of it. From my recollection i think it dated to 47.

My deepest sympathy to you, your mom and all, for loss of your dad. I lost mine a quarter century ago. Him at 90 years and 'time'. The pain has long melded into great memories. But I do understand one facet of going through such loss. "Time outs". Needing to pause for some bit of normalcy such as here, a quick gun blog. Some kind of parachute to remove if only temporarily from the many obligatory factors & details... At least this, unlike my 'chute' of old... Doesn't leave a hangover!
Please get back IF AND WHEN convenient.
God bless you all. Take special care of your mom! And... may He welcome your father!
John

if anyone needs a BRNO 21 in 8x57 with the longer barrel (23.5"?) I have an extra that is original from the buttplate to the front sight hood. IT has bolt guide and butterknife bolt handle. I think it is about a 48 or 49. cannot remember. it has the 19mm dovetails on the bridge.

PM me if interested. They are great rifles and I am keeping the 7x57 just to simplify my reloading bench. I have dies, bullets and brass to go with it.

My 22H still remains unfired. I have considered having it restocked as these came with a really basic stock that I would consider below average fit and finish.
I thought I might have a new stock made, replace bottom metal and change to a single trigger.

Well, mine is NOT for sale. If I recall, it is a 1947 production. Only thing not original...someone replaced the rear sight with an adjustable Lyman. Rifle is plenty accurate, both with the generic factory loads available at the local hardware store and handloads (seems to the the 200gr Barnes TSX). And unlike GeoW, I'm fine with the "basic" stock. That is the type of wood I'd want on a working rifle. The rifle, to my mind, carries and handles much like a Winchester 94 - just with some serious thump. I'd love to take it on an elk hunt in the timber......

Condolences on that apparent loss too, Tc. They do come along, just not often.

100% with you richj! I'd not wish that receiver D&T either. I've only one D&T. 8mm, well used/lightly abused. But for a price... ! My earliest example in a short, handy rifle, '47 dated, 13K Sn and yet with functional clip guides! That as bolt without rib nor under bridge female slot. Believe there were yet a lot of wartime surplus components, such influence reflected here! The action is quite smooth and tolerances sufficiently tight, guide rib not missed. Pix below.
Best & thanks for the great Brno gab here!
John
