Rhoner Sportwaffen .22LR and 9mm Shotgun combination Gun
Made by Rhoner Sportwaffen in Weisbach in Germany this useful combination gun has the top barrel smooth bored for the 9mm Flobert or Garden Gun and the bottom rifled barrel for .22LR. A thumb operated catch breaks the gun and the hammer manually cocks the gun with a selector on the nose of the hammer determines which barrel will fire. The gun has not seen much use and is in very good condition with little more than handling marks. The barrel is cut at the breach end to accept scope mounts. A practical vermin gun.

BRNO CZ .22LR semi Auto with sight and Moderator
A BRNO CZ .22lr semi auto. The rifle is in a used but sound condition. The walnut stock has marks from use, but not appearing abused. The box magazine is present and it cycles sub sonics and high powers rounds reliably. It has a sling and a Bushmaster 3-9 x 40 telescopic sight fitted. It also has a moderator fitted, but this can be removed if you do not have a variation for one.

A Winchester Model 9417 - .17HMR. This rifle is number one of a limited production of one hundred rifles titled "THE FOX". It is in exceptional condition - either given very little use, or even unfired. Even in standard form these Model 94 lever action rifles are a rare best. High gloss wood and gilt finish on the lock and furniture. This rifle has a scope rail built into the top of the receiver for those wishing to make the most of the .17HMR round.
Sako Quad Varmint .22LR
Only test fired on a range, this Sako Quad outfit has been reluctantly offered for sale to to the advancing years (95) of the owner. It is in perfect order. The rifle is fitted with a Leupold VX-1 scope 4-12x40 and a bipod. The rifle comes with the barrel changing key and the original instructions/handbook. The original Leupold cope instructions are also included. The barrel is screw cut for a moderator. The removable magazine is included. This really is a good a s new. A separate unused .22WMR barrel is also currently available to go with this rifle.
Mauser Model 105 .22 LR Semi Auto Rifle
A Mauser Model 105 Semi Auto rifle. These rifles are famously reliable and will cycle pretty much all sorts of .22 LR ammunition - to the amazement of folk used to new "plastic fantastics". The Model 105 operates on a "Blow Back" principal and shoots from an open bolt. To operate it you pull the cocking lever, and bolt, backwards and it locks into place. When the trigger is depressed the bolt slides forward, picks up a round from the magazine and pushes it into the chamber and strikes it. The "blow back" from the round going off pushes the bolt backwards where it locks into place again. There are far fewer moving parts in this system and it is very reliable. A famous use of this system is found in the Sten Gun of World War 2. Having the bolt move forward when the trigger is depressed sounds as if accuracy would be adversely affected, but the reality is that these rifles maintain a good level of accuracy. The barrel is screw cut for a moderator and has a knurled ring around the thread - this is a factory done thread. The magazine holds 10 rounds. The factory iron sights are fitted and in good order and the receiver has rails for fitting a scope. The stock is the higher grade of the two finishes offered by the factory. The rifle comes with the original Mauser owners hand book. Something a bit different, and that will give years of reliable service.
Savage Model 93R17 Laminate thumb hole .17HMR
A little used .17HMR rifle by Savage. A Model 93R17 with a laminated stock with thumb hole. The 17" Stainless steel barrel is screw cut and it comes with scope blocks (20mm). The rifle is in very good condition - as new with just one handling mark just behind the bolt. I have shown this in one of the photos.
.22 LR "Mosin Nagant" Polish WZ M48 Trainer
An interesting .22LR rifle: made after World War Two as a training rifle for Polish recruits and reservists, it is closely based on the Mosin Nagant rifle - then the Polish service rifle. The only real differences being the calibre and the fact this is a single shot rifle without a magazine. This .22 model is slightly heavier than the original. This example was made in 1954 when the Cold War was very frosty and the mass conscript armies were a major part of the Warsaw Pact strategy. It comes with a canvas sling with leather attachments which are both supple. The bolt and the receiver have matching numbers.
BSA Model No 8 .22LR Rifle
A classic .22 LR target rifle from the extensive range of BSA. The Model 8 was introduced in 1930 and has the narrow 1" action - usually referred to as a Martini, but actually a Francotte with the cocking indicator on the right hand side of the pivoting breech. This is a heavy barrelled version. The rear sight is a BSA aperture sight and the front sight a flip sight with a post or a aperture inside a tunnel guard. The bore of this rifle is good and the action is tight. It has a few marks on the barrel bluing and the stock, but nothing serious. The scratches on the lock are not very obvious and my flash photography has made them appear far more severe than they really are.
Fabrique D'Armes St Eitenne RAF Model 52
A semi automatic RAF Model 52 .22LR from the French Armoury at St Eitenne. I cannot find out much about these French weapons. My guess is it is from the 1950s or 60s and that the RAF designation has noting to do with the Royal Air Force! It cycles well and shoots straight. The barrel is screw cut for a moderator and it come with a 4x32 scope of serviceable quality. The detachable magazine holds 10 rounds. An interesting vintage .22 worthy of a bit more research.
BSA Supersport Five 5
A BSA Supersport Five .22lr bolt action rifle. A classic little rifle. BSA introduced the Sportsman rifle in 1947, as a single shot bolt action rifle. After just 1 year they introduced the five shot removable box magazine rifle - the Sportsman Five. The quest for more and more magazine capacity lead to the tubular magazine Sportsman Ten following, which in turn morphed into the Sportsman Fifteen. The box magazine Supersport Five was made between 1955 and 1967. The bore is in good condition, the wood is in much better than average condition - not perfect, but probably with its original finish and very tidy. The metal bluing is reasonable with no large or obvious areas of discolouration or scratches. Perhaps most importantly, it has its original magazine - sadly so often missing with these great little rifles.
Gustav Genshow Model 37 .22
Retailed by GECO in Berlin this rifle was made by Gustav Genshow who was based in Spandau, Berlin. This rifle was made under the direction of the Nazi officials who wanted a training rifle closely replicating the characteristics of the Mauser 98 service rifle. This one has a civilian or sporting style stock, and is marked "Export Model". The production of a sporting model and the labelling as export may be just political efforts show adherence to the international restriction supposed to prevent Germany from re arming. By 1939, when this rifle was made, such lip service would seem to have been unnecessary. The rifle has the standard Mauser rear sight, is in good general condition with a good bore. A useable and hand some classic .22 with an interesting history.
