RARE GERMAN BORDER GUARD DREYSE NEEDLE SHORT RIFLE:
In very good general condition. 43 ¼ inch overall length. Very good metal bearing a pleasing smooth age patina throughout. Very good markings. Matching serial numbers. Very good action. Good bore with some fine oxidation and strong rifling. Cleaning rod is probably a later replacement. Very good stock showing some light handling marks and a small missing sliver on the front left side (See photos). A scarce and desirable needle Dreyse variation!
