    Thanks for the photos! That mark is UNQUESTIONABLY J. G. Anschütz and I can't imagine it being mistaken for anything else.

    Here is the trademark as used on the cover of a prospectus for the DSM as produced by Anschütz (manufacturing rights from Mauser by contract). The initials were stacked vertically, sometimes in a circle and sometimes in an oval, as shown here. That said, I don't know how much the firm had to do with your rifle, but it certainly appears they had a hand in it somehow.

    Very nice Meister. As noted above, break down and get a copy of Alte Scheibenwaffen Vol. 1. Wonderful presentation of the history of scheutzen and unbelievable photography. Even my wife was impressed.

    Lucky you, I had to buy all 3 volumes for myself. Lol.

    The "JGA" in a circle is definitely an Anschütz marking. Here are 2 Anschütz Zimmerstutzen k98k trainers in 4mm Lang.

    I always enjoy reading about 8.15 loads. The Aydt I recently bought by a long time shooter was slugged at .318. He gave me a160gr .323 mold with a .335 stop ring. His load was with 12grs of 4227. As a novice I am starting with that. It shot well in my Jung and I need to try the Aydt on the bench.
