Ok, I am helping my father-in-law sell his rifle. I have been doing some research and have come up with some details about the rifle. However, In my quest to find out how much it is worth I have become even more confused? I know in order for me to get a better response I need to post some pictures and I will as soon as I get my camera back. Until then I guess I just need some more facts and advice about this rifle. From what I have found this is a Mannlicher Schoenauer rifle. I am thinking pre-WWII because of the round bolt release. I have not been able to find a model # without removing the stock. I am thinking it is a model 1903 because (according to my father-in-law) it is chambered in 6.5x54. On the left side of the rifle it reads (Oesterr.Waffenfabr-Ges Steyr). On the other side located on the barrel and the receiver is what I would think is the s/n of 156XX. The stock is in "used" condition with checkering on the forearm and grip. The stock does not extend all the way up the barrel. At the tip of the stock there is a silver rod that when taken out releases the barrel from the stock. I have not seen this on rifles I have researched but it looks factory? The stock has a hinged metal butt plate. There is also a lever in front of the trigger guard. I am thinking this might be a take down model but I can't find a photo of one so therefor not sure? I can't tell if this rifle has been reblued? If so they did a crappy job because it does show wear. I apologize for not having a photo but I will get one up asap! Thank you all for any advice and help you can give. God Bless! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
