Introduced by a Dutchman in 1897, the Wehrmannsgewehr was a type of 3-position shooting competition using military pattern rifles in a sporting caliber (the 8x46R, firing roughly a 150 grain lead bullet at 1800 fps). It was pretty limited in popularity in Germany until the end of World War One, when the Treaty of Versailles prohibited Germans from owning military arms. At that point, the sporting-caliber Wehrmannsgewehr became a very handy loophole in the law as a way for men to practice shooting skills with military style rifles. It would become quite widespread especially in northern Germany until the 1930s, when rimfire shooting began to eclipse it (the .22 rimfire ammunition was a lot cheaper, the guns were promoted by the government, and the 50m rimfire ranges were much more common than the 300m ranges required for Wehrmannsgewehr matches. Examples of these rifles were both made brand new and also converted from existing Gewehr 98s; this is an example of a conversion made by Haenel. As is typical, it is a single-shot rifle, with the magazine left filled with wood and a new stock covering the magazine area.

Even though the magazine wasn't necessary for this competition, I would want a magazine option if I were buying one. The magazine wouldn't matter much for competition, but for practice, loading each round individually would be tedious.

For whatever reason, I've never found Mauser rifles very interesting, although I've owned a couple over the years. However, after watching some of your recent Mauser videos, along with some from C&Rsenal, I now find the variety of Mausers absolutely fascinating. How's that for a testimonial to the quality of your videos? ("Before discovering Forgotten Weapons I couldn't get girls to pay any attention to me at all. Now that I watch Forgotten Weapons videos I can't get them to keep their hands off me! Thanks, Ian!")

Wasn't 7x57mm Mauser also exempt from treaty restrictions in Germany? It was a very popular sporting cartridge already, but only saw foreign military use ... and also not with any of the nations who actually fought in WWI. OTOH, with 8mm (like the 8x51mm Mauser used in the short-action 'Kurz' Mauser sporting rifles) might've allowed recycling of some surplus 8mm barrels from decomissioned/disabled/destroyed service rifles. (where 7mm would be easier to use with unmodified surplus actions/receivers missing their barrels ... well, G98s at least, given modified G88s would be less appealing) up.picr.de/32872139da.jpg sportsmansvintagepress.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Mauser-Sporter-Caliber-Details.png sportsmansvintagepress.com/read-free/mauser-rifles-pistols-table-of-contents/mauser-sporter/ 8x51 is an interesting intermediate sporting cartridge, close to the .30-30 or .32 Winchester Special.

Another requirement: prove you can store your rifle where stupid show-off kids and thugs can't steal it! Most firearm related crimes are committed by thugs with STOLEN guns, not by people with legally purchased guns.

+bon15914 First off, it's called a confessional, and second, nice try with the pedo shit. All good Catholics know that the Church needs a reformation. Our problems go back to the middle ages if we're going down that rabbit hole. To pinpoint a couple of examples there was shift from a Roman style of rule to a then more modern medieval style of ruling that included much degeneracy and the fall of the then papacy, which for a while was controlled by the Byzantine Exarch of Ravenna and other various state influences. There's also the Calvinist bullshit with a further departure from orthodoxy. And lastly, there's Martin Luther the heretic. Martin Luther and his ilk should have been rounded up and executed for heresy and the world and modern history as a whole would have been better off. Christ left us one holy Catholic and apostolic church via the first Saint Pope Peter when Christ was on the cross, to which He left us Mary as a mother and guide to us all. Even the heretic Martin Luther and his 37,000 protestant denominations posited that the way to God was through Mary. Process that and rebuke your degenerate and sinful ways. Atheism is intellectually dishonest and disengenuous. Pray for forgiveness and do so through the Sacred Heart of Mary and the communion of Saints.

Now that is some gorgeous wood on that stock. I have a sporterized 1916 Mauser 98 in 8mm Mauser, (Don't judge me. My Grandfather had it done in the late 40's.) It has a great looking stock, but that one even looks like an even nicer piece of wood. Those turn of the century Germans sure knew how to build a rifle.

Unlike most cheap manufacturers today who think about copying and pasting without fine-tuning, the gun-makers of the previous generation were artists. Every rifle made for the German armories was given a finish equal to that of a nobleman's hunting rifle. In this, however, lay the weakness of production for the Gewehr 98 family: each weapon was too darn expensive. Later "emergency" versions of the Kar98K from 1943 onwards did away with the sporting finishes, the old-style front barrel band, and even the bayonet lug. The cleaning rod and kit were also left out, so cleaning kits were shared by all men within a single platoon. The rifles still worked fine, but they were quite pitiful in appearance, not unlike the Japanese "last ditch" rifles. And no, the Japanese "last ditch" rifles weren't prone to exploding in your face. I found that the Japanese usually proof-tested their rifles with horrifically overcharged cartridges, loaded hot enough to explode a captured M1903 Springfield.

Handsome Jack Yes, the stances are quite exact, as is the angle at which you lie prone, but they are hard to explain in text. Standing is with rather how you would naturally hold the rifle, left foot and shoulder forward with straight legs, kneeling at a is similar angle, one knee on the shooting mat but straight back so you can't support your left elbow on the knee, prone again is with your body at about an 7:30 angle, elbows on the ground but rifle raised enough for the mag not to touch the shooting mat.

Denis, the fact that it is chambered for an "obsolete" cartridge that is not compatible with machine guns should make some sense. Bayonet charges against machine guns and artillery tend to end in disaster. That might be why the Allied occupation authorities permitted the conversions and the sporting rifles with their military style furniture, since they already knew that mass infantry rushes were tactical suicide. If a town armed with sporting rifles rose up against the Allied occupation troops, the Allies would probably respond by massacring the townsfolk with artillery.

Yep! Globo-Shlomo had the same Agenda then, as it has today against Germany. Of course, back then, it didn't work out so well for them after 1933, so...

Why does everyone assume I'm all for senseless violence and genocide? I don't hate anyone, but that doesn't mean I should be forced to accept their culture. I used to tolerate it, but now tolerance isn't enough for these people, nowadays if you don't blindly accept every facet of a culture and God forbid you voice disapproval you're labeled something ending in an -ism or - phobic.

+Peter P Is the right wing realy the problem? Or is it the left wing that let millions in and call them "refugees" (which is against the law and propaganda because less then 2% are real refugees). And later loosing the trace of over 600000 of them. Later calling everyone that criticize the government Nazis and right wing. East europe did not make the same mistake and was called evil.

+Chris Hutchins Really, the 'problem' with migrants isn't that big as Trump and his media outlets would have you think. It's actaually quite peaceful here. The real problem we have is the extremist right wing assholes marching in protest every other day and chasing people through the streets because they look like foreigners. These people would be about the only ones arming up if our weapons laws were more lax, which is why the far-right political party we unfortunately have is the only one demanding a loosening of said laws. Noone can be interested in giving gubs to radicals who reject our democratic system and propagate a civil war because of some whackjob notion that 'the German people' is in danger of being extinguished by invading migrants. Most people in Germany don't really care about owning guns, and those who do, like me, put up with the burocratic hurdles we have to obtain them. The system works, and we don't get guns in he wrong hands. But the reason I wish to own firearms is not some obscure need to protect myself (protect myself from whom? I live in one of the safest countries in the world with declining crime stats and zero to none gun violence), but because I'm an avid competition shooter.

And people say hitler took the guns, when I hear that I always laugh. He subsidised them. Lovely rifle btw, would love something like that, legal in the uk too so awesome! I've got a 1930's production German air rifle, a lovely shooting piece, low powered enough to shoot cans in my back garden with (35m) and so much fun at the range.

+Northumbria Bushcraft I`m pretty sure Stalin and Mao had no problem with the "right" guys having guns. It`s the same with everybody - you want your guys to be armed, and the enemy to be disarmed. Nobody is anti-gun in the sense that he is against the weapons themselves (yes, even Dianne Feinstein :D). Gun policies always stay the same - only friends and enemies change. So the gun policy of a country conveniently reveals who is considered loyal, and who an enemy.

Could something like magnetic particle inspection be used to visualize the scrubbed off original military markings on the receiver?
Mark Becht
Mark Becht Acum 2 luni
No. Scrubbing (grinding) the markings off would remove anything MPI would find. In fact you'd have to running some high amperage to get the existing markings to show well. There are some methods used in forensics that might bring them out, but they are destructive - using acids where the old stamping >may< be slightly more resistant
The Ride Never ends
im no expert but it might be feasible if you can see the density of the metal as the original markings where likely stamped in which would compact the steel

Fun fact, it is called "Lange-Visier" because it is a surname, not because it is long (because that would be -Lang Visier- Langvisier).

+Dylan Latour Some bigger gun stores might order PPU 8x50R if you order it in higher quantities, i am sure they make it at an acceptable price. PPU also makes 7,65x53 Argentino and 8x56RS MAnnlicher. If you cant get that you will probably have to order brass and reload yourself or trim and resize similar cartridge brass, but I dont reload personally so I cant really give you any info on that
