Model 1

Nice old rifle. I still do not see any curve in that butt plate at all......and the blue on the bolt handle is pristine.......so much so that I still suspect it was re-finished. Now that you have it...

Model 2s

Jim,
I noticed that my fat stock model is numbered 15,000 rifles lower than my '57 deluxe. Perhaps the first Model 2 rifles produced were all as pictured and the schnabel style was added later based...

Model 1

Just looking at the picture of the Model 1, I would guess:
1. The stock was cut off to make it straight and a flat buttplate was fitted

Value

As a rabid Brno collector, it makes a difference in my purchase decision; however, in the wider market, the condition will likely affect the value more than the year and actual maker. Same great...

Brno or CZ

I have a later gun Marked "Brno Arms" that clearly has the CZ logo on it. The two logos look similar at first - study them closely. I would call it by the logo displayed on the rifle. The Brno logo...

I am no mechanical engineer for sure...........however, if you examine the locking lug design on the Mauser b models, you will see that the lug is quite robust. More so than the new Steyr Zephyr II,...
