    Schuetzen is more of the target rifle, it got those fancy finger rests and often decorated.

    Stalking rifle is more utilitarian.

    Typical Scheutzen rifles will be in 8.15X46R cartridge. They were used for formal matches at 200 meters offhand, on a 25 ring target.

    22 LR would most likely not be a Scheutzen match rifle, but it could be used for practice or training a novice at shorter ranges.

    It could be some sort of, if not parlour-rifle (5mm Flobert zimmerschuetzen), at least target rifle. Probably post turn-of-the-century.

    Generally, if it's got a Tyrolean styled stock and tang sight it's considered a target rifle, though these are all so hideously nonstandard and almost all bespoke that pretty much anything goes.

    I would guess, even with a plainer cheekpiece, it's a target rifle simply by the sight mounting bracket. Stalking rifles usually have simple leaf sights.

    it looks like your image files are just too big Stan, I think to have them hosted onsite they have to be 300KB or smaller.....these are both 2.1 MB each....

    Hah, it's a Flobert. A much better Flobert/ Warnat(sp?) breech action than usual, but still a Flobert type rifle. Definitely a target gun. Rather unusual, most rifles employing that action style either broke or were inexpensive garden/home firearms, not expensive target guns with embellishment.

    Nifty piece.
