    Cool photo. Probably staged? I don’t think many snipers would be open like that.
    Looking for 10" cleaning rod, early style e/214 #91, nazi style e/26 #04

    I love it Ham. It's because of pictures like this that I started collecting grenades to go with my sniper rifles. Thanks for posting.

    A sniper picture on eBay that Dave didn't bought .. he must be ill!

    Some observations (that I assume most had made themselves, but just to have it mentioned): flat buttplate, appears solid and not laminate, scope with focal adjustment, straight half ring soldered to the rear with spreaded apart feet at the front. Mount obviously saddle mount, as it should be. Safety of the rifle appears fully engaged, so surely must had been a staged picture. Plus I guess a sniper would not use grenades...

    The scope surely must be a Dialytan 4x mounted by Greifelt & Co of Suhl, they look exactly this way!

    When I saw this thread and saw that I had not seen the photo , I did become violently ill and actual in my mouth . I could not believe I missed this photo . The Scope and Mounts are exactly what You mention .

    Well the wording used indicates the picture is still up for sale, so you may cure yourself by buying it!

    The wording may indicate that , but You can trust me , when I say me and another person have spent a good amount of time searching and have not been able to find it in any ongoing or sold/ended auction listing .

    Yes of corse , but Ham was not sure if it was correct seller in the link that he sent me . I contacted said seller and he replied not his photo . I know with 100% certainty it was not listed on Ebay !!!!
