My New 1895 Hembrug Rifle

    Default My New 1895 Hembrug Rifle

    What's the verdict on this 1895 Hembrug Rifle? I have been looking for one for many years but never found one that was complete. Usually the cleaning rod rod was missing and/or the condition left a lot to be desired I probably over paid but Dutch rifles are a large hole in my collection and this is the first one I have seen in may years. I bought the bayonet many years ago but never found the rifle until now.

    Hi Andrew,
    Yes I have a Dutch 1871/88 Beaumont Vitali and it's bayonet. I have had it quite a long time (25 years) That was my first Dutch weapon. They are great rifles a hard to come but these days, great find.

    Hi Ray & PanzerG,
    Thanks for your kind replies. You do not see Dutch rifles very often in the US and the ones you do see are usually the ones you wouldn't want in a collection. I tend to be very picky. However the search continues for some of the early carbines. I already have a minty 3 digit serial number Queen Juliana Mauser. Still looking for a Queen Wilhelmina Mauser.
    Regards,
    Sam

    Very superior example you have there-from what I have observed the demand/market for minor European powers weapons in the US is limited to hardcore collectors-possibly because shooting ammo is limited for odd calibres?

    Lithgow,
    Thanks for the praise.You are absolutely right. I guess I am one of those hard core collectors as I especially like the weapons of smaller countries worldwide. I especially like the rifles used by the countries in South and Central America as well as Europe. One of my very favorites is my Chilean Carbineros Carbine.
    I don't worry about odd calibers as I reload over 30 calibers. The 6.5X53R Dutch caliber as well even though I don't shoot most of them very much. I still like the ability to have the ammo when I need it.
