    Seems to be in fairly good nick apart from some light surface rust on barrel and the rear of action has been butchered to fit dove tail
    Now to see if it shoots.

    Used the 8x57 quite a bit with the heaviest loads I could find (from memory 200 - 220grn?) on a lot of manawatu sambar, poleaxes the big stags no worries. When you get sick of it send it my way
