150-1 info needed please!



Log in to see fewer ads
My 1st Suhl so any & all info, history will be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance!
I think it's a late model with serial #0666xx & is this model. Ernst Thalmann Suhl-150's were produced with a modified stock design. This new design featured an adjustable comb. Are the later ones 1in16 twist?

Most of the -1s were 1:19 twist, although Iíve heard of some with oddball twists.

I had a 150 and 150-1 both were 1-16. Easy to check. Mark your rod and measure the distance it takes to make 1 rotation.
If you have a 1-19 you may want to consider selling it to someone in a southern state, or just shoot it in August.
A 1-16 is better suited to Michigan temps.
Great rifles with excellent triggers and barrels.
When out of the stock be careful not to bump the trigger. It is made of pot metal and snaps easily. Only weak link in the rifle, otherwise excellent.

I'm hoping for 1in16 for long range but won't know till it arrives. Most of the stickys are older, does anyone have or make parts or specalize on accurizing them? What ammo are you getting the best groups with? Thanks for your help!

Nice pickup on that one. My 150-1, is only a few down the line from your (serial number wise), and was proofed in 1990. It has a 1:16 twist rate, though they seemed to change twist at random from rifle to rifle.

I’d recommend picking up a replacement trigger blade as the stock pot metal blade will break easily.

If you ever decide to put it into a custom or benchrest stock and are considering selling that one, please keep me in mind. My stock is missing a different part than that one yours is and I wouldn’t mind making one whole. Haha

Iíve only seen one for sale on eBay coming from I think Greece... they are pretty simple though and you can likely find a non OEM replacement

I am certainly more the recreational shooter so I haven’t needed to do extensive testing or purchase large lots.

Mine seems to like RWS Target Rifle well enough. But I’ve also had good luck with SK plus and even Eley Target.

Suhl's come with what is likely the finest factory trigger ever put on a rimfire rifle (and I have both the Annie 5018 and 1407-U9 triggers). The trigger is magnificent, and the barrels are first rate as well. Congrats on a fine rifle!

Get a Harrell tuner from KSS and test with Eley Black box. You won't need any thing else...

Thanks again for all the help! Now I just can't wait to get it & shoot it. I have a range here on the farm so I shoot alot. I'm so exited as I always wanted a Suhl 150. I think KSS is having a sale maybe & I can machine an alum trigger blade. I just have a feeling she'll shoot lights out. I'll report when I get it set up & shoot, Thanks again!

It’s possible. They weren’t the only importers though for the 150-1. Mine was imported just a few years ago by a smaller LGS/importer. You’ll have to see what the import mark looks like.

All4Fun used to make excellent brass trigger blades for the Suhls. Just checked his profile and he hasnít been around for a while. Neither have I, so I hope he is well and just away for a bit.
