Hopefully I've done this right. My computer-friendly mate is looking over my shoulder. This is a model JR, in calibre 7 x 64. You pull the rear "trigger" to set the front one as a hair trigger of incredible sensitivity. The scope is a Pecar of Berlin 3 x 7 mounted on EAW quick-release swivel mounts. An absolute dream to shoot.

Yes indeed -- you did it exactly right. That's a lovely rifle, with fine photos to boot. Thanks for sharing it.

Welcome to the forum, by the way; enjoy your time here.

You are right Dizzy that is not a JR Sniper, that is a JR Hunting rifle that the JR Sniper was derived from. They also had a third model, a JR Taget rifle in .308 that did not have a thumbwhole stock either.

This is always worth a good look for starters:

https://www.waltherforums.com/forum/t...tart-here.html

You might want to check the gun auction and for-sale boards online to see if you can find a similar rifle that's currently being offered. And if all else fails, check Earl's website and look in the Rifles section:

www.carlwalther.com

Good luck.

Well, I guess that one idea would be to contact Earl via phone or email and ask him what it would cost you to get one of those rifles from him, were he able to import it for you. That would at least provide you with some sort of base for discussion. You also might try a similar question on the P.38 Forum, where a number of Walther-inclined people hang out. Someone over there might have one and could serve up a notion or two. Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Does Anyone know how many variants of the JR there are? I am aware of the Sniper, which has an external mags, so the sniper can easily change ammo depending on the target, and also a sporting version with the same stock, same action, same barrel yet has internal mags and is used in either UIT or open sight competitions out to 300M over in Europe. There are also the JR light barrel models with lighter stocks and barrels and removable magazines. It would be nice to know how many variants are built on the same action. The JR action was created first as a hunting rifle then the sniper variant was added as a stop gap while the WA2000 was in the design and manufacture stage.....so I understand.

What are the markings on the barrels in the US versions? 7.62? or 308?

I've got the UIT heavy barrel version that I bought in Germany back in the late 70's - early 80's. It came with a Walther brand micrometer rear sight and globe target front sight. My eyes aren't as good as they used to be so the sights came off and a 6-24X scope was put on. Real accurate with handloads but not so with factory fodder
