Very nicely written article Fotis, thank you for sharing it with us

We have another writer on the forum as well. Hodgeman writes some excellent articles in an Alaska publication and if I was not electronically challenged I would post a link to them

Also Fotis since I am electronically challenged I will answer your question here.

On our first trip to Africa my husband bought me an English made 416 Rigby. It proved to be too much gun for me and I traded it for a 375 H & H. I wish I still had that Rigby

Voere is one of those rifles I've never had the chance to mess around with....after reading this I'll be sure to rectify that at the earliest!

Not many comments and possibly that is because few know of this company/rifle.

Believe me Fotis is spot on here as they are a good company, that makes good and interesting rifles--plus they do so in my favorite European country. My memory may not serve me correctly and if it does not please correct me Fotis. But the double trigger which Fotis is recommending ( which is a good recommendation ) is the 2165 I believe. We used one many years ago, but did not own it. The one we used was a very well built rifle. Fotis, I think if I was buying one today, I would buy a 7 x57 and if it is possible to get a full length stock on the 2165, I would do so, but definitely it would have a double trigger.

Fotis has given you fellows a good heads up here to a good rifle that is not a run of the mill rifle, which I know many of you here love anything, not normal ( i.e. Winchester 30-06 ) This would be a good one for those who collect weird stuff like the 348, and 35 whelen

Very nice article Fotis. I had never heard of this company. Have attempted to read more about them and it appears to me that the 2165 model that you had and have is the double trigger model and the 2155 would be the single trigger. They also make some other stuff that was interesting to read about, so again, thanks Fotis for this thread.

The only rifle I ever sold that I regretted was a 270 Weatherby, which I replaced, the very next year. I have determined, at least for me, that there is nothing I can not hunt with a 270 and 340 Weatherby.

Fotis,

That is a nice article, very well written. As with others, the Voere was not on my radar. I am not sure if I had even heard of one before.

Fotis, you are doing a excellent job on your blog (y). I had a good old friend that collected Voere rifles Mic was a old lefty that did not care that his rifles were right handed as long as they were Voere (y). I shot a couple of them and you could tell there was quality there.
I believe Mic mentioned that Voere was the built off of the Weatherby action?

Blessings,
Dan

Dan, the Voere is build off of a 98 I believe.

IMHO Roys action is better than the 98, but Weatherby, Mauser and Winchester ( pre 64 ) did all make excellent actions.

After Fotis posted his blog it spurred us into contacting them about a 2165 7x 57 with a full stock (mannlicher ).

Kleingunther Distinctive Firearms (KDF) imported Voere rifles and "accurized" them and sold them under the Kleingunther label. I bought a K-14 back in the 70s and it was a tack driving son of a gun. The only issues I had with the rifle were it's extremely long length of pull, 14 1/4" and the fact that it had a detachable magazine under a floor plate. A few years later they followed up with the k-15 instafire. The rifles were guaranteed to shoot 1/2" groups with proper handloads. The Kleingunther rifles had a three lug bolt head and only took 60 degrees to open. By the way, they were bedded with a pressure point (precisely placed and torqued pressure point).
