    Exceptional quality and condition.

    Gold Inlaid Schuetzen Single Shot Rifle by E. Pachmayr, Traunstein, Germany. Chambered to caliber .218 Bee. Short throw Martini style falling block action. 23.5" barrel, round at the breech, then tapers to octagonal for 9.5", then round to the muzzle. It is our opinion that the round portion of the barrel was sleeved into the breech section and chambered for .218 Bee in the 1950s. Octagonal portion of the barrel with an integral scope rail, ramp front sight. The gun now mounts a Weaver K10 60-B scope. The right side of the receiver is etched/ engraved with a young woman, wearing German folk costume, carrying mugs and standing on a barrel, flanked by floral/ scroll work. The left side is covered with an engraved/ etched panel of a man in German folk costume, smoking a pipe, with a mug on the table at his side, also amid floral/ scroll work. All in the best traditions of the German Scheutzen organizations. The elaborate trigger guard/ lever exhibits scroll engraving surrounding the intertwined, gold inlaid, letters, F H, on the bow. Other surfaces of the lever also display scroll and cross hatch engraving. Adjustable double set triggers, locking lever at the rear of the trigger plate. Scroll engraving at the rear of the receiver and tang with provisions for attaching tang sights/ scope posts. Massive Scheutzen style butt with extension on the toe of the butt plate that terminates in a scroll. Mechanically perfect, mint bore. The round portion of the barrel retains 99% of a bright mirror blue. The balance of the gun retains much original blue, mixing with smooth gray patina, very nice. The wood is perfect, retaining 99% of an old varnish finish. A beautiful rifle in a very desirable caliber.
