    An old friend returns

    My 30-30 93 Mauser is back from the beauty shop. A friend slimmed and refinished the stock and GAVE me the Weaver K6W already mounted! He had it for 9 months - so after selling my lever 30-30 months ago- I was missing 30-30 bad. I moved the scope forward and square for my holdand tightened every thing. I used 3 shots adjusting the scope; the next four were almost touching at 40 yards. I managed 3 in 2" at 100yards. 20.2grs ( 1.6cc) IMR 4198, Lee C309170F (180grs)
    Still a 30-30 fan!

    We’re pretty, I like it nice and clean! I use that same dipper only with RL7 , shoots good and kills dears too!

    I really like that rifle. I've developed a thing for small ring Mausers the past couple of years.

    Thank you all. I’ll put the K10F back on with its lower rings when these loads are gone. Spring Turkey season is about a month away. Perhaps a gobbler will visit the smoker.
    That K6W is heavier than it was 45 years ago somehow.....

    Nice slim looking rifle ! Tell us about the conversion to a rimmed cartridge . Is it a single shot? Or will it feed from the magazine still ?

    That has to be the sweetest looking 30-30 bolt gun I've laid eyes on.

    It feeds well surprisingly. It doesn't feed the Lee 113F very well or anything with a large meplat. The magazine will hold 4 cartridges at most and still feed.The minor modifications made are in an old thread in the Barrel Works section.(Barrel nut on SR Mauser) It looks good from a distance like lots of home sportered Mausers, but from the get go it shot beautifully; so minor things become unimportant. It's definitely a favorite shooter- I got lucky I believe!

    Absolutely beautiful.....looks like the ol' gal can still shoot as well....I would score this as a win win!

    Looks great.

    I always like to see people get what they want.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.

    Nice looking. What kind of wood is that? European walnut? Do you have a before picture?

    You were right and it does feel more lively. Do you know what kind of walnut this old Fajen is? A friend did a Mark X sigle shot in English walnut from Fajen(early 1980's) and it looked similar.
