BEST QUALITY, 1897 - 1900 Dutch Wilhelm Von Kreyfelt Rotterdam Holland Rolling Block 9.5 x 60R Mauser Obsolete Calibre Match Grade Target Rifle. Sn 14618 - 14618

Wilhelm Von Kreyfelt was a Dutch gunmaker active around 1870 until 1900. Little is known about Von Kreyfelt other than he made or modified this best quality, heavy, rolling block match grade target rifle which is in the obsolete calibre 9.5 x 60R Mauser introduced C1887 for the Peabody Martini Action rifle. It has blued metal work and figured walnut stock, the left side with raised cheek piece. The stock is mounted with an oval brass plate engraved ‘F.F. Kesting’ most likely the name of the original owner of this rifle. It has a curved steel butt plate, two sling swivels fitted with leather sling and steel ramrod. The action tang is signed ‘WILH. VON KREYFELT, ROTTERDAM’. It has a 31 ¾” round stepped to octagonal blued steel barrel with adjustable rear sight and block and blade fore sight. The barrel’s bore is clean with crisp rifling. The rifle measures 48” overall length. Its loading and firing actions work perfectly. The price for this excellent match target rifle worthy of further research, which would have been an extremely expensive weapon to buy when it was made includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre, antique firearm no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 14618.
