FN Mauser 7X57 Scoped

From my research, when FN (Belgium) began manufacturing Mauser 98 rifles in the 50's, they quickly realized what a Herculean task that was! They quickly reduced the number of machining steps to lower costs and the result was a rifle that was OK, but not great, like the German version was. Well, here is one of their first rifles, and this one is GREAT. Serial #370 places this rifle within the first few months of production, and the fine fit and finish demonstrates a high level of pride from the factory craftsmen at that time. The metal work retains nearly all factory "rust blue" with only barely detectable wear on high edges. Heavier than usual (for 7x57 sporter) 24" barrel retains what I consider a perfect bore and chamber, banded sling swivel and rear express sight base. Rear sight has one standing, two folding leaves. Round bridge reciever has the desireable, early "non-left-side extractor cut" and is topped with steel Warne Scope bases, Leupold rings and Leupold VXIII 1.5X5 scope. 13-3/4" length of pull fine oil-finished Walnut stock sports tasteful checkering, cross-bolting, beautiful FN logo horn butt, horn grip cap, silver initial shield inlaid between grip cap and sling swivel and cheekpiece for right-handed shooter. A beautiful and unique commercial Mauser, ready for service!
