Kleinguenther/Voere K-22/201



Log in to see fewer ads
Just looking for more info on one of these. I've found a little from google searches but not much. I recently got one at a small gun store in the Texas Hill Country. I thought it was pretty nice and had double set trigger I found interesting. I guess many of these were made to order so there doesn't seem to be any standard.

One I got looks like it has a stained birch stock with a very dark wood tip. Wood looks pretty plain, has a matt/flat finish on the stock and metal parts. Not in perfect condition but not abused either. Came with a 10 round magazine and scope rings for the grooved receiver but no scope. It was relatively cheap with set trigger and a Texas connection so I had to bring it home.

I posted on "other rimfires" and it was suggested I repost here.

Just looking for more general info/history. Any way to tell when it was made from SN? Anything to be careful with? I just plan to use it as a plinker and casual paper puncher. It does need a general cleaning. It looks to have sat in a closet for a long time.

Dear Arion,
Although I don't have a Kleinguenther, I do have several very nice Voere 2107s and although they are plain and light, they are very good shooters and a great value for little cost. The Kleinguenther's are supposed to be even nicer, especially with that double set trigger. If you got it cheap, then you stole it!!! Good luck and let us know how it shoots.

Does anyone know what kind of scope rings might have been supplied with this rifle? Did Kleinguenther make their own rings? Anyone have a picture of one if they did? I am assuming these are not the original rings.

I had a Kleinguenther/Voere in 308 I bought while in Germany, looked just like the back of yours. They did not come with mounts or rings to my knowledge. These were beautiful rifles, please show a whole gun picture.

The deluxe versions like this should have a walnut stock? Plain version is Beech or Birch?

As far as I know, small manufacturers of guns like yours usually did not make their own rings, as these rifles share the 11mm "accessory rail" very common to european
(or at least german) air and small bore rifles.

Low and midgrade optics (the Mars brand was once common) often came with their own, very simple mountings, consisting of just two clamps made out of an accordingly bent strip of metal each, straightened by a slotted screw.

HTH,

Hans

Hans,

Back in the days of mail order catalogues, Mars was the branding of either Quelle or Neckermann.

I am about to be the proud owner of a set of Mauser 201’s with Double-Set triggers but I badly need 5-shot .22 WMR and 5-shot .22 LR mags for both of these guns!

ESPECIALLY the 5-shot .22 WMR mags.

Does anyone have a couple or three extra they would sell me. I’m at gilbert159 at hotmail dot com or 248 342 5971. Im Kevin. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I’ve exhausted all other sources. Hoosier Gunworks has none and nobody else does.

I have the standard model K-22 I bought in in about 1982. It is the most accurate 22 sporter I have owned or seen for that matter. Magazines show up occasionally and are kind of pricey. Ejection on mine is kind of weak, but it works if you move the bolt quickly. Yours is the deluxe model with the double set triggers.

Kleinguenthers- 201s - Voere

K-22 knows these rifles. For those interested Remington 541 bases will work if they are drilled and taped.
Also Mr. Kleinguenther worked for Weatherbys when his rifles were made in Germany before it was moved to Japan. He moved to Seguin, Texas and opened
Kleinguenthers distinctive firearms on hwy 46. He later sold to Phil. Name was changed to KDF.
Kleinguenther then opened another gunshop in Seguin.
I had him do a good deal of work for me. He rebarreled several rifles for me.
Along with muzzle brakes and accurizing a number of rifles for me.
He found out I hand loaded my own ammo and I wound up loading some for him.
He had his own pet loads.
