This is a very unusual and unique Norwegian M59F1 Mauser 7.62m replica sniper rifle from my personal collection and has been completely rebuilt to more exacting standards than those provided by the original Mauser rifle. I believe it to be the only rifle of its type in the UK and is extremely accurate.
This rifle was factory manufactured by Kongsberg, Norway after the surrender of Germany and fitted with 7.62mm heavy target barrel, aperture front and rear sight. The rifle has an excellent barrel with no noticeable wear. It has been fitted with the correct scope mount and a German Marburg 6x42 scope, with a period No1 reticule. Optics are excellent.
The rifle has been fully refurbish, bedded and the trigger fine tuned, making this more accurate than the original rifle. The finished of both the woodwork and barrel/action is excellent with no transit marks or loss of finish. The rifle has the post war matching serial numbers provided by Kongsberg. With the exception of proof rounds and the 25 rounds that I used for accuracy testing this rifle has not been fired since I built it and sadly is the reason for my decision to sell.
