SINGLE SHOT F. ULM ROOK RIFLE IN CALIBER 7.65MM
As indicated by its name, the rook rifle's intended prey was small game including rooks and rabbits. It was designed to be light enough to be carried for a walk in the country, accurate and powerful enough to take small game and usually stylish in balance, fit and finish. This rook rifle has a 26-7/8 inch tapered barrel. Sights include the ramp front sigh, two-leaf rear sight and folding tang peep sight which folds into the tang. Barrel retains most all of a quality refinish blue. Frame has good traces of original case colors. Bore is bright with strong rifling. Checkered pistol grip stock is in good condition with a cheek piece and horn grip cap. Steel trapdoor but plate. A nice little rifle!
