(NSN) 6.5x55, 29 1/2” barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 95% original blue, the loss due primarily to even fading and some wear on the triggerguard. The bolt body and receiver races remain bright, as does the bolt knob, the extractor with some nice pale fire temper blue. The rifle is stocked classic style in European walnut with checkered grip and wrap-around forearm patterns, the stock rating very good to excellent overall. There is a bone gripcap and a grooved bone buttplate for a 14” length of pull. The right side of the butt has a circular silver monogram plate affixed with a single brad which is engraved “F.Rosenberg” and alloy content coded “830S” (Scandinavian silver has a millesimal fineness of 830). The rifle retains its original front sight on square block, adjustable for windage, and has an aperture sight mounted to the striker shroud on the bolt. A couple of the screw heads show some slot damage and there are some circumferential scratches around the screw recesses in the triggerguard. Frantz Munch Rosenberg was a Norwegian sport shooter and author. He was born in Oslo and competed in trap shooting at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm and wrote numerous articles on shooting and hunting and authored Big Game Shooting in British Columbia and Norway. The silver plate and Mr. Benenson’s notes are the only connections to Mr. Rosenberg, Mark having purchased the arm from Karl Hanevik at the Las Vegas gun show in 2000, according to his notes. Really a nicely executed hunting rifle with an uncharacteristically long barrel and connection to a famous Norwegian hunter and shooter. (37022-2){C&R}[Mark Benenson Collection]

Estimate: 1800 - 2200
