#8189, R. B. Rodda & Co. Calcutta & Birmingham: A Mauser 404 Jeffery Sporting Bolt Rifle Made in 1928 by August Schuler, Waffenfabrik of Suhl, Germany for Rodda & Co. and marked only for Rodda. Schuler was most known for his 500 Schuler or what we call the 500 Jeffery. This 1928 Suhl made rifle has a 25" 1/2 octagon & 1/2 round Krupp steel barrel with a full length machined integral rib with 1 standing & 2 folding rear sights, It was proved both in England as a 404 (10.75 x 73mm) and in Germany, Barrel sling eye, A cross wedge to secure the barrel in the forend, Standard Mauser action with a modern bolt sleeve to facilitate a Model 70 type 3 position wing safety, Non-hinged floorplate, Modern Talley Quick Detachable Lever release 1" rings with a Leupold matte 1.5 x 5 scope, Shadowline cheekpiece, Horn forend tip, Horn grip cap, Point pattern checkering, 14" LOP over a 1" pad, Very nice cast-off in the stock and comes to the eye with ease, 9 lbs. 4 oz. without the scope and 10 lbs. 1 oz. with it mounted, All of the metal has been reblued, The stock has been refinished, The bore remains in very good condition with sharp rifling from throat to muzzle. This is pre-war Suhl, Germany tough gun with a touch of British Sporting Bolt Rifles that will serve its intended purpose in the game fields of Africa. There is about 100 each 500 Jeffery's built by August Schuler but this is the first one I have known in the great 404 Jeffery.
