    Schultz & Larsen differences

    I happened to look at 2 S&L rifles yesterday, one was a model 54 the other a 65.
    Are there really any significant differences between them because other than different stocks the action etc seemed to be exactly the same.

    I don't know Larsen but this is Schultz. It should be easy enough to tell the difference now that you have seen one of them.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Just looking at my book the 54 was designed to shoot the 7x61 Sharp and hart cartridge, rear locking, they stopped making them in 1957 and the model 60 ran from then until 1960 when the model 65 was introduced with some major internal improvements this ran until 1967 when it was replaced by the 680L.

    I'll have to see if I can find out what the internal improvement are then, these rifles are in two useable calibres anyway, ones 30-06 the other .270.

    Major improvements included safety changes, going to staggered magazine, longer receiver, cock on opening, shorter striker travel etc.

    I used one of those in 7x61 for a while. Beautiful smooth action and 26 inch barrel, far too long for a bush rifle though. Surpriseingly enough the 243 put the animals down quicker. No idea what model it was though
