I just noticed this board and thought I would post some pics that maybe of interest. This is a german guild rifle built between the world wars out of surplus and scrapped rifles for sporting purposes. It is a hunting rifle in 7.9x57 made from a kar98 action. it has flip up rear sight leafs, set triggers, and a quick detach 4x87 post reticule Norris scope. Bolt handle and safety are altered to clear the scope. My grand father brought this back from europe after WWII. It served as his hunting rifle up till he stopped in 1991. He got it in early 1945 and said it was picked up off a sniper that had been harassing his company. I have read that the wehrmacht rounded up scoped sporting rifles in military caliber and this may be one, but is just the story. Anyway just sharing 2 shots I took of it after he gave it to me this year. The sling is not original, it is a postwar israeli sling, but is of the kind that he said was on it. It also came with a leather "AKAH" marked leather scope case.
