Von Lengerke & Detmold were New York importers and dealers active in the early 20th Century, and were a prominent early pathway of the then-cutting edge Mauser Broomhandle onto the American sporting market.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 70% plus original blue finish, showing some rubbing on the high edges and the sides of the barrel, light handling marks and mild spotting. 70% of the original niter blue is present on the small parts, and the fine grips show some mild dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
