Guys, what have I got? I purchased a gun this weekend at an estate sale. The gun is marked 22 Varminter on the barrel but no other markings ie manufacturer. I was told this gun was a hadn built sometime in the early 60's. From the chamber measurements and bore this appears to be a 22-250. Was the 22 Varminter the wildcatters designation for the 22-250? I asked if there was any ammunition for the gun and was told they didn't know. The action is Mauser, smooth as a baby's butt want to have it and the rest of the gun looked at by my gunsmith. The wood is simply gorgeous. The Scope, I can't make out the manufacturer but is definitely not in English I think it is German but need to get my glasses to make sure. The reticle is post type with yardage markings (I assume) below and to the left of the post. It has windage markings right and left of center again I am assuming that is what they are. It is a very clear scope but have no idea if it is usable. Not really concerned about the value as I gave very little for the gun but it is a beautiful piece of work. It has engraving on the trigger guard. A gold trigger which brakes at about 2lbs. The bolt and handle is very ornate with scroll type engraving on it as well as the chamber. This engraving goes out onto the barrel. If I could get my camera to work I would post some pics. This is by far the most interesting gun I have in my collection.
