    I hear what you are saying about the zipper, the old 94 was never really the right platform for it so neither is the 336, a scope alone is not enough! But are you against the martini? If so if it on the basis of barrel shank size. Why a Savage...

    I paid $149 for mine. It was a un issued gun when I got it. Mine is a plain M48. I have had about 20 or so of the 24/47's and 48's. A bunch were used for making sporters with a barrel change. This is one of my favorites. 24/47 made into a 257...

    The reason is that a cerosafe casting is not precise enough. Cerosafe grows and shrinks a lot, and is only good for +-.002 inches. It's simply not accurate enough, nor predictable. A pound cast never changes (at least not enough to matter) and when...
