    Well it’s mostly original finish , the butt pad is obviously not original but rest of stock is untouched , I had Allen Carr fit a recknagel bolt shroud with side wing safety and he reblued the bottom metal / trigger guard that had a little wear and I didn’t want touched but he decided to do it ...and that’s it .
    I used to have another one with the same bolt handle but with the standard 2 triggers , was very well used that one though .

    So you all like Model 21's - there were a lot of "variants", I've seen quite a few . . . this is one I owned for a while, it came to me from James Passmore (Carlsen Highway) with an unusual adaption to the claw mounts - this might have worked OK had someone not cut it up. As it was the rifle whilst in lovely condition would not hold zero . . . so I sold it on. As I recall the proof date was 1942 and the rifle bore the stamp of a Paris retailer - it was likely special ordered by a German officer . . . . 8x57JS

    I've posted these photo's elsewhere on the forum but hey - no harm in a good repeat eh??

    This rifle is only "bits" of a 21, it has the action, bottom metal and stock, but the barrel has been fitted as a replacement at some stage. Action proofed in 1956, barrel in 1926 (in Germany) and reproofed in the UK in 1955. Figure that one out!

    Shame about the top one @Tentman as that’s a really nice bit of wood for a 21, I turned one down about 5 years back that had the nicest wood on a 21 I ever seen( very similar to your one ) but some dopey bugger in the past had cut the stock down to about 12inch LOP or something it was crazy short .
    Love the barrel on your other one is that got a full top rib or octagonal barrel ? What’s the Calibre ?
