Model 8/81 Contemporary: The Sempert -Kreighoff Autoloader

Post by 81police » Wed Jul 30, 2014 9:10 am

Packmule was kind enough to bring by his very rare 1930 Sempert -Kreighoff Semiautomatic Rifle 8X60. This model of gun is featured in John Henwood's "The Great Remington 8" book on page 154. It is a contemporary of the Model 8/81 in that it was another high-powered semi automatic sporting rifle. The price of this rifle, in 1939, was $500. Various inflation calculators put the 1939 equivalent price to today's money around $8,300!

Here's a few photos of the rifle, enjoy!

Thanks Cam for taking and posting the great pictures, and I remembered the German name for it
it was called the "Krieghoff Selbstlader"

Hey Richard,

You are so lucky to find such a rare rifle. I can't believe that you are willing to part with it so soon. If only I had the need for such a beauty, I would help you out, :lol: :lol: :lol:.

Kindest Regards,

Jack
