That's a beautiful little rifle, I had never seen one until now. Thanks for showing us.

As one of the 'last' rifles, its interesting to note the serial number, as it gives
anecdotal evidence to loosely support the "Blue Book" claim that the total production was 3,913 rifles!

(Yours has the highest serial number I remember seeing --- never one in the
oft-repeated 4000 to 6000 range.)

Has anyone seen an engraved Zephyr which the paperwork seems to imply was
an option?

As your rifle has what looks like 'upgraded' wood and DST, does it also have
"Boehler HH" stamped on the right-hand side of the barrel,
just in front of the receiver?

Thanks for sharing a great looking and very interesting rifle!

. . . just when we thought the Rem '37 Sporter post couldn't be topped . .
I am not aware that the rifle I selected was in any way a special upgrade, as it just happened to have prettier wood than the few others. It figures that my rifle has a high number as apparently it was near end of production and no longer listed by Stoeger. The only other marking on barrel,other than caliber, is serial No. which is rather unusual. Thanks for asking, wish I could tell you more.

Engraved Zephyr

2-3 years ago at the Tulsa show I saw an engraved Zephyr. No telling if it was factory or custom.....just simply jaw dropping! It was in the lower level against the east wall southern side of the building.

I asked the price and the nice lady said..."seven". I replied...."Seven hundred is not bad!" Her and I both laughed......

Anyway, so there is at least one engraved one out there.

I don't get too excited about it. Believe it when I see it.

The old ones are classic.....too bad they don't shoot good.
The old saying about not commenting if you have nothing to add is appropriate for you. The man is proud of his elegant rifle and you post crap. A negative (rear-end/dark hole/asshat) in every crowd.

Love your rifle. I can definitely see myself spending time in the woods with it. Congratulations on owning something as priceless as that rifle.

Any way you can look at it, it's a better looking rifle than the new effort. Simply stunning and elegant. It makes everything else out there look clunky and awkward, especially the Zephyr II. Beautiful rifle, thanks for sharing!

Beautiful, now you need one that you are not afraid of taking out, using and scratching. Mine lives in the safe too without a box. Every time you open the safe and see it you must smile from ear to ear. I am envious.

I had a Sako Rhimaki FS in 222 that was as beautiful as this one, I loved that gun. It would group great but the group would wonder around depending on the temp and humidity. I sold it to a guy who was more interested in its looks than shooting. On the other hand I have a cz 455 fs in 17hmr that has beautiful wood and shoots way better than it should. Imagine if he bought all of them? Hindsight is wonderful.

No other rifle owns that mannlicher look, like a Steyr.
