A different Walther



Log in to see fewer ads
a very different Walther in fact, this was shown to me today...










Some one wanted a Walther repeater really badly...uses a Winchester magazine and I'm guessing the catch and such were pirated from a Winchester as well.

Just running Azoom dummy rounds it functions pretty well and it has an absolutely pristine bore other than a little carbon ring.

Must be doing a lot better visiting gun shops (especially if the wife ALLOWS you to visit gun shops! )



So, did you buy that Frankenwaltherchester? How does it shoot?


Enquirer minds and all that . . . . . .

No, strictly a curiosity, one of several guns from an estate but nothing I felt compelled to purchase. Exercising mask and social distancing on the field trip. Still get very tired very quickly but you don't get better just sitting around.

Very interesting rifle, Gerald. I actually appreciate the Rube Goldberg alteration which turns it into a repeater. You gotta love that kind of ingenuity!

It's also an interesting rifle in that it is only the second Meisterbuchse that I have ever seen that does not have the dovetail cuts in the front receiver ring. I have been watching, and sometimes buying these rifles for more than 35 years, and that is only the second one I have seen like that. It is a fairly rare rifle, even before it became a one-off with its repeater modification. Thank you for showing it here.

And let me add my prayers and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

All the best---

Well, BRP, here's another one.
And a before picture (showing the ungrooved receiver ring) and after (after refinishing with Brownell's Oxphoblue) with a dovetail adapter that by happy coincidence I happened to have in my parts inventory, and which fit perfectly.

A little OT, but in the FWIW department, I also have a very high quality BSW single shot with the same "affliction", and a Weaver TO9 or T10 base fits it very well too. (sorry, not my dark fuzzy picture this time)
