    LuckyDawg those were made from Colorado elk by Sack Peterson. Yes, the other side looks good too with light bark. I have another pair; thicker with heavy bark for the next .41 BH I can buy.......

    Was watching another online auction today and bought a Winchester 1885 High Wall mfg in 1913 that was reworked into a .220 Swift varminter c/w with a Unertl on it. Basically stole it ... paid what the scope was worth ...

    I just picked up a $80.00 frankenmauser flea market find. It's a 1915 Kar 98 small ring rebarreled to .243 Winchester with a 1:10 twist. Click image for larger version.

    I'm calling it a frankenmauser because of all the different unmatching parts it is made of. The trigger guard is post war Czech from around 1945, the action is 1915 Kar 98 small ring action second dated to 1920 with miss matching bolt and the stock is probably a year or so newer than the action. I dropped a Leopold 1x4 scope on it just to see how it shoots condom bullets which has been a bit of a disappointment so far. Not planning to shoot cast with it yet.
    It's to bad it got all chopped up, would of been a nice collectible if left alone but it is way too far gone to return to original so I'm trying to make it work in it's present configuration. I'm mainly cleaning up years worth of dirt and surface rust along with some cosmetic reblueing along with floating the barrel and bedding the action. I know it's a dog but for the price it's worth a try to get it right.
    I'm not sure if this is the right area to post this monstrosity so feel free to move my post to the proper thread.

    You'd have done good at twice the price. That 98 small ring action was free and so desirable.

    Just bought my first "Magnum" rifle; a Remington 700 Long Range in 300 WinMag. My excuses/discussion with the wife on needing a new rifle:

    (1) I have over 400 empty cases for the 300 WinMag that I have picked up over the years. Need to sell them or get a new rifle.

    (2) I need a rifle to shoot long range on Rifle Ranges or other areas where they will not allow me to shoot my AR50 (50BMG caliber).

    (3) You are looking for a Christmas Present for me; this will do it and I'll have something to play with over the winter as I get it set up for the Spring and Load some Ammo to shoot in it.

    (My wife is supportive/a facilitator of my shooting addiction; she facilitates it quite often by going to the range and shooting with me. Of course; it can have it's risks. She has appropriated my Colt Ar-15 in .223, Savage Axis in .223, and Savage 12FV in .223 as her own.)
