Hope I did a better buy with this one than the colt wanna be 45. Was told this is a 22 training rifle made in Germany it will shoot as and automatic or bolt action any help appreciated I would not think a training rifle would have checking and I’m sure this peep is not original to the gun please help identify gun and peep thanks guys

    You show a German Walther Modell II sporting rifle, capable of operating as single shot, bolt action, and semiautomatic. The original tangent rear sight was removed to make room for the American made Lyman peep sight. I don't know what number Lyman, it may be adapted from some other rifle.

    The bolt handle is broken off and the toe of the stock is chipped in the same way as mine.

    That magazine is valuable, Carl's Walther repair service lists a 5 shot for $150, no tens available.

    Thanks yea I watched a vid on this gun the bolt handle appears to been cut off I didn’t think the peep was true to gun original rear sight is missing and butt plate and toe missing I gave 250 dollars for the gun did I over pay here is a pic with peep removed I assume some one cut the wood out and drilled receiver for this peep?

    I think you did well.

    I lived next door to the town gunsmith, he neatly patched the stock of my Sportmodell - a plain bolt action - and it looks good and shoots well.

    I agree that the Lyman peep is an add on, there are a lot of German rifles looted during the Occupation with American peeps and scopes added.
