Hi,

I think all of us hope to find a custom rifle for a bargain price. I was following this rifle on gunbroker.
I like the way that the stock was done. I tried to get more pictures from the seller, but they were really
uncooperative and I ended up not bidding. I thought it would be interesting to discuss this rifle. Maybe someone can identify the maker.

interesting Mauser

looks like a good deal to me. Nice stock shape, barrel contour and the early Lyman 48 does not hurt. Better pics would tell a bit more. I'm curious as to the action, caliber and what the grip cap and buttplate look like.

The grip and comb have a bit of a Dubiel look to them, but never seen a Dubiel with a schnabel.

True now that I think about it.

I second SKB's wishes for more detailed pics. And I agree someone may have picked up a nice rifle for a sleeper price.

Could it have been a common commercial FN? European features are often seen on these later FN guns. Not that an FN commercial wouldn't be a good buy at that price, but not an extraordinary bargain, depending on caliber. Not common, but some FN Mausers have claw mounts, multi leaf sights, and other neat features.

Possible, but early style lyman 48 makes it seem a little less likely. Also I would more likely expect Commercial FN to have caliber marking. Really not much to go on with the terrible pictures.

Did FN make commercial small ring actions? I do not think so.
