German Aydt Schuetzen rifle - 8.15x46R mm

The swinging-block action Aydt system was designed by German gunsmith Carl Wilhelm Aydt (1847-1923) and patented in 1885. Aydt target rifles and pistols (known under German terms Schuetzen and Scheibenbüchse) were produced until 1939 by C.G. Haenel Waffenfabrik, F.W. Heym Gewehr-Fabrik, August Schüler and other manufacturers. Most popular chambering for these guns was 8.15x46R. Together with Martini system, Aydt system was most widely used in German target rifles of late 19th-early 20th century.

Main production versions of Aydt system were Original-Aydt of Haenel production, and Aydt-Reform and Aydt-Ideal versions, produced by Schüler. Unlike original Aydt, Schüler models had an internal extractor and some other minor improvements.
