    WTS .25-20 German single shot

    WTS: German kiplauf single shot rifle, .25-20 W.C.F. Unknown maker, D.R.G. stamped on the water table. Under lever, double set triggers (which work sweetly). Original butt stock- no tang cracks, but a collection of dents common to guns of this age. Locks up tightly. Someone along the line re-lined the barrel and chambered it for .25-20 WCF- minty crisp bore. 24 7/8" barrel length. Barrel finish is a smooth "blue patina"- I don't know how else to describe it.

    The downside: The receiver evidently was rusted at some point and now exists with a fine etching from same. I don't feel it detracts- it kind of looks intentional- but that's my opinion! I was going to draw file it smooth if/when I got around to restoring it. Forend is not original- it came with the current wood that is not well fitted/shaped, but it is functional.

    Sights are obviously non-original, but again are functional and will serve to plink with. My plans were to bypass the sights and go to a scope. New projects force me to sell old ones.

    I bought it six months ago and have only test fired for function with a handful of factory cartridges, with which it performed as it should.

    Along with the gun are a couple hundred (please don't make me count them!) cases, a small selection of various lead bullets, and a set of dies.








    Price: $450+shipping, to include the dies, brass, bullets. Copy of FFL needed, unless you convince me it is pre-1898 (which I think maybe it is). Why so cheap? Condition is everything. Were it in fantastic shape in whatever its original caliber was, it would be a $1500+ rifle.

    Paypal preferred, but will accept postal MO's and personal checks (which will have to clear before shipping)
