7×57 Loewe Mauser Sporter with Williams Sights and Fajen Monte Carlo Stock

A pre-1899 Ludwig Loewe Sporter chambered in 7 x57mm Mauser with a Williams ramp front sight, Williams fully-adjustable peep rear sight, and what appears to be a Reinhart Fajen Monte Carlo style American walnut stock.  Has a Pachmayr white line recoil pad.  This is a typical deer-hunting sporter of the 1970s.  Has a low C-prefix serial number  (C26X), indicating that this rifle was made in mid-1895. The bore is starting to gray, but it has very distinct rfling. The stock has nice grain and is in wonderful shape, with just a few handling marks. It has not been drilled for sling swivels.  The Williams brand adjustable ghost ring peep rear sight is threaded for a standard insert, if you want peak accuracy — or just leave it as is, for snap shooting. The sight is mounted far enough rearward to allow the use of stripper clips. Thus, this is a good candidate to turn into a scout, by adding a forward scope mount.  The action locks up nice and tight, but with considerable drag in the last 1/2-inch of bolt throw, as the bolt cams downward.  (Should be stoned and headspace-checked by a gunsmith.) Serial numbers are mismatched and the bluing on the barrel is mostly gone. (So I have priced it, accordingly.) This would be a good rifle to either Cerakote or camouflage dip.  (BMK-241)
