Information I found online.

"Flaig's was originally in the Northside of Pittsburgh, (East Ohio Street) then moved out to Ross Township. they advertised Millvale Pa. It was a beautiful lodge "up on the hill", over Babcock Blvd. The "Lodge" was really built like a european hunting lodge. Very German and imported lots of expensive German/Austrian guns; Ferlach doubles and drillings among others.

They had a number of great gunsmiths over the years and any job could be done.

Barrels stamped with the Flaig name could be rebarrels or guns made to customer's spec. they used a lot of '98s and FN actions.

Flaig died without children, and the business shrank. He always had a german shepard, Heidi; he was a very colorful character. Later a young couple bought it, for the name and the import rights. That lasted about 4 years, then the whole business faded into history.

I doubt that the "Flaig" name makes it collectable. I have a few rifles that had work that was done at Flaig's. BUT, the name does mean they were done right and should be very good rifles.

There are a lot of those "Flaig" rifles still floating around the Western Pensylvania area."

It might help the sale to take it to the range and shoot some Factory ammo through it to see how it shoots. If it's attack driver, someone will want it and you may not want to sell it. :-) I love the mannlicher stock. That is a sweet looking rifle
