    Out of curiosity, do you mean that the rifle is a Brenneke brand, or do you refer to the Brenneke calibers (e.g. 7x64, 8x64, etc.)?

    I would definitely be interested.
    Brenneke was sort of the Roy Weatherby of his day. His 7 x 64 and 9.3 x 64 were both really excellent and ahead of their times.
    I have never seen an actual Brenneke rifle and don't even know whether any were even made
    Unlike Mauser, most Brenneke calibres were only ever available in German or other European rifles.
    Whatever the situation, i would definitely be interested.

    Good to hear from you Jaco. Jaco, this is a Brenneke 7x64 caliber hunting/sporting rifle made in Europe, a few of them made it to South Africa ...it was the higher quality type of rifle from Europe..the 9.3x64 caliber got bad press/opinions due to the bullets used in Germany that time were not up to the pressure and velocity from this caliber rifle and broke up on game..but today this caliber will be a great penetration caliber with new technology ammo...the 9.3x64 Brenneke is a highly sought after caliber rifle..especially in this caliber weight.
