Custom rifle new to me.

Postby Savage99 » Sat Oct 19, 2013 11:16 pm

I got a rifle this week with a fine walnut stock. That's what I like these days. :)

It's on a FN mauser action with a 24" barrel in 7mm RM. What's different is that it's twist is 1-12". It won't shoot 140 Sierra Pro Hunters (flat base), 175 gr factory nor 140 X's. The X's keyhole.


What's special to me is it's custom walnut stock. It is fine art to me.

There is something about a nice wooden stock ... and that wood is fantastic looking.

I've always been a fan of wood stocks. Beautiful!
