This Springfield bolt-action rifle's pedigree is tough to beat. Crafted by Elmer Ray Stahl at Adolph Otto Neidner’s shop in Dowagaic, MI, it incorporates Stahl’s patented bolt locking mechanism and a supplemental button safety on the trigger guard. It was also fitted with a select walnut stock chosen by Thomas Shelhamer when he worked in Neidner’s shop. This sporter was donated by Stahl’s son to the National Firearms Museum in 2010.
