Thanks Mike. I am planning on re-casting the bores on my tight double to confirm their dimensions. I have a jacketed .358" 180gr bullet that would work well I think. And those are so much easier to find than good .366 bullets that are light enough for this rifle (I have some of the Lapua .366 bullets on order. Should arrive this week.)

Weißgerber / Weisgerber hung out his gunamking shingle in 1814 and hailed from Germany's oldest city, Trier. Which one is it that has the Rascher style engraving on the top of the frame?

Raimey,

The Triebel sights are for the forearm on the left. The right is a Gebruder Merkel double, model 131 from 1931 per the seller. Both are wonderful. The Merkel shoots extremely well. I'm still backing into what to feed the 9.3x72r with the Triebel mounts. I have located a set of Triebel system rings to either fit to this rifle or use as a pattern for making a set (I grandly dream of future completed projects....)

With all the Trieble refs, I think that Left DR was made by Triebel.

Rainey,

Thank you for teaching me the name of this engraving style. I didn’t know that and am grateful.

By searching for Rascher engraving, I found this page of examples. Some are very close in style to my rifle.

Yeah, there was only one engraver or family of engravers that applied the tap, tap, tap of the adornment for the Rascher type engraving.

If you post fotos of the touchmarks, that effort may garner additional info on the smokepole.
