Too, it looks like the tubes were originally >>62/78<< bore then the left landed up being >>54/35<<??(5,4X35???) & received an insert or was sleeved?

How did you determine original wood?what year was the barreled action made? At some point it was altered to the existing calibers I am very surprised the gun is original.it would be fun to shoot

Hello ellenbr,

Yes, you can see fragments of the original 11mm left tube marking. The caliber numbers "5.4 / 35" are over-stamped when the barrel was later sleeved.

Hello mc,

I have several European rifles and doubles and in my opinion wood and metal appear to be original. I'm not sure of year of mfg. I don't recognize a typical proof house date stamp. Other than the numbers shown in the pictures above, ( number 62687 is the serial number, on the bottom of the left barrel flat, numbers 933 / 1643 are on the bottom of the right barrel flat ) there is the number "1341" on the bottom of the original 11x60 right barrel. No doubt, the 22 Hornet sleeve was later added, and the "5.4 / 35" was stamped over the original 11mm caliber stamp. As can be seen in the breech photo, the sleeve and extractor work was very professionally done.

Hello All,

Here is a shooting update. I custom loaded both 22 Hornet ammo and 11mm Mauser ammo. (loads are shown on the targets) I fired the right 11mm barrel first, followed by the 22 hornet barrel. I fired 5 shots each barrel to zero the scope. After the 22 Hornet barrel was zero at 50 yds, I fired a 3 shot group with the 11mm barrel that went into a 1 inch group. Although left-to-right was good, the 11mm group was 10 inches low.

And now I understand the reason for the Nikon Prostaff Scope. The reticle is BDC = "Bullet-Drop-Compesator" that consists of a series of small aiming circles, below center, along the vertical wire. These circles are for reference "hold-over" for various ranges beyond initial zero. The aiming method I used is shown to the right of the target pictured below. Although the aiming was different for the 2 calibers, its easy to remember and use when hunting.
