Steyr Mannlicher Schoenauer Carbine 7.62X63 30-06 With Factory OIGEE GNOM 4X Scope In Vienna Mounts

This is one of the classic Mannlicher Schoenauer carbines made by Steyr until just before WWII. We believe it is a model 1924/1925 as it’s chambered for the 7.62X63 cartridge which they didn’t describe as 30-06 until after 1950 and the "Österreichische Waffenfabriks.-Ges. Steyr” was changed to “…Steyr AG” in 1926. It features a 19.7” barrel with ramped front bead and two-leaf rear sights, 5 shot rotary magazine (a thing of beauty), butter knife bolt handle, double set triggers, full length finely checkered walnut stock with steel nose cap, grip cap, sling swivels and grooved steel butt plate with trap. Mounted atop the receiver is an OIGEE GNOM 4X scope held by quick detachable Wiener Schnaeppermontage see-thru mounts (Vienna snapper mounts). The serial number 1947 is on the barrel, bolt, bolt parts, stock, butt plate, trigger plate and scope (rear leg of integral mount). Not counting the butt plate it retains about 95% original blue with thinning on the leading edge of the nose cap, slight edge thinning, the bolt stop has flaked some of its niter blue and the guard bow has some fading to brown patina. The butt plate keeps about 50% original blue with scattered rust and slight pitting. The bore is perfectly smooth, bright and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and the stock is completely sound with scattered light to moderate handling marks – there has been a professional repair of what looks like a substantial crack originating on the left at the rear of the magazine mortise which is echoed to a much less extent on the right side. The repair was made using glue with brass reinforcement. All of the straw color remains on the bolt detent and all of the case color remains on the trigger plate. The scope retains about 85% original blue with some scattered scratches and rust spotting particularly around the ocular housing where a scope cap had been. The optics are clear and bright sharply defining the German No.1 reticle with no dirt, cracks, chips or other flaws. A beautiful 1925 carbine with factory mounted scope.
