Picked up a Kleinguenther/Voere K-22



Log in to see fewer ads
Found this in a small local gun shop. It's a little grimy but seems to function. Not my normal style of rifle to pick up but it just seemed like an interesting and very well made gun. Made in Germany, can't be all bad. Nice stock with a little dark wood trim at the end of the stock. Set trigger seems to be pretty nice.

I did read a few posts about these. They seem to be loved or hated. This has had a lot of use so I think someone liked this one. Found not too far from Seguin so it hasn't gone far..

No sights, no scope but it has some decent looking rings on it. Originally had a Lyman scope on it but the dealer sold the scope off of it. I think I'll try a Weaver V9 AO on it that I have laying around the garage someplace.

Any thoughts on them positive or negative? Anything to look out for?

Very cool rifle!

Question:
Pardon my ignorance, but would pulling the rear trigger transform the front trigger to a hair trigger?

Please post some more pictures when you get a moment. I hope it works out for you. Enjoy!

Yes, setting the rear trigger makes the front trigger extremely light. Maybe not the greatest setup for a sporting rifle but I'll just have to live with it. Doubt it ever shoots anything but paper anyway.

Played with it a bit more and the trigger unset is nicer than most of the other .22s I own.

Arlon,

NICE rifle - exudes quality, doesn't it? I remember seeing one @ a good gun show several years ago. It had one trigger, as I recall? The magazine was shorter, so I assume yours is 10 rounds? I should have bought it then...!

Congrats on a fine, German .22 rifle! Enjoy shooting it.

I think most were single triggers. Not many set triggers. Yes it's a 10 round magazine but I already have a 5 rounder on the way to my house.

Once you get use to the set trigger format you will see itís advantages over a single trigger especially on a Sporter. Enjoy your new rifle. Looking forward to your range reports.

Does anyone know what exactly Kleinguenther did to these rifles if anything? Was he just the importer or did he modify them in any way? There seems to be a lot more info on the work he did with the center fire rifles but I really haven't found much info on the k-22 at all. I did read one comment on a forum somewhere that stated that he pillar bedded the k-22, maybe that's the only thing he did to these.

Posts about these rifles are usually found in the Mauser sub forum. Your rifle became the Mauser 201.

Thanks, had not considered that. May add a post there with a few more pictures.
