Re: Weichold rifle
Trannie man, You have, by the pics and description, inherited a pretty nice 'chunk gun', of fairly high quality, judging by the false muzzle, as these are work to make, and never seen on cheap 'front stuffers', though the caliber is kinda large, for the purpose the rifle is obviously intended.
The 'underhammer' action is similar to a "Mac Keraghan" stamped action, sitting on my desk, and designed to be a 'direct ignition' action, allowing the flame from the cap to go directly into the charge, with no twists, or turns, from cap to powder.
The stock, a sheutzen style, and the extended rear sight, along with your description, pertaining to weight, lead me to believe it was built as an 'Unlimited' class rifle, for NMLRA competition.
Hope this helps a bit.
Don't start no s**t and there won't be none, Terry
