    The Swedes are the cream of the crop. Neutrality preserves rifles well. The early German and Gustav guns are fabulous.

    Since I am computer `challenged` and can`t figure out how to post pics I will just tell you about my small ring. It is a WW 1 98a that had the misfortune of being `bubbed`. I rescued it for $75 from that guy and continued on to make a very nicely done sporter. I did a scout scope mount on the rear sight area leaving the bolt bend original. A Timney trigger and a Fajen stock and touching up the miltary metal finish finished the job. I have developed a `J` load of Nosler 180 BT that are very accurate. Again I`m sorry for no pics.Robert

    No close-up picture but here I am with my M96 1909 CG, all matching numbers. A sweet shooting rifle for sure.

    A 1916 Erfurt SR that I built this 6.5x57 on with the spectacular stock blank gifted to me by a good friend. I did this stock as a blind mag which makes it an absolute delight to carry with the radiused forestock bottom fitting the hand so well. A buffalo horn forend tip and grip cap that I cut from raw buffalo horn.Talley bolt handle and bases with QD scope and a Talley aperture sight to have both sight options. The Trigger guard is an abreviated standard unit cut off and reshaped. Butt plate is checkered steel and the barrel band sling eye is one I made from a Lee Enfield center screw and band which took a bit of time but works nicely.

    I always love seeing pics of the rifles you build. They are beautiful and the fact that you hunt them hard as well just makes them even more interesting.

    I just recently picked up a neat one in 7x57, there's a thread about it here titled Mauser Question. I can't seem to get the picture to upload again for some reason.

    I've had a couple of range sessions with it so far and it shows some promise with cast. Neat rifle.

    Nice rifle and it looks very light. How much does it weigh?

    ..............FN made action for the Brazilian 1894 carbine, and repurposed as a 7.62x39 Mauser. The new barrel is .300 x .308 so I don't shoot the jacketed surplus in it.



    Another FN action as above chambered to 35 Remington. a perfect union.



    The rifle is a very fine shooter.

    1891 Argentine "A" block

    I have a number of 1891 Argentine rifles. My favorite is this "A" block unaltered long rifle. It still has it's crest and original rear sight. The bore is nearly perfect and the rifle shoots lead bullets of many styles quite well. The early bolt shroud does not protect the left raceway against gas from lower power loads that don't fully seal the chamber form spraying the shooter, but neck sizing fire formed cases solves that problem easily.

    I really like that .35 Remington. That would be a sweet woods deer rifle.
