    Something Old, Something Newish, Somethings Buried, Everything Blued!

    So I've Just finished night shift and I've been trying to add pic's from 11:30 x%$#!.
    Just a little comparison of an or the most Iconic Manufacturer and the best caliber the world has ever known "a" @ryansonghurst !
    Yes a Man licker! (Mannlicher) Most Guys want at least one!!!
    Kahles scopes, Helia 4 S2 and KX 3-9x42
    The 1965MC has a flip over mount to easily access the 100/300m iron sights. The Classic's are set at approx 100m
    Steel mag x5 rounds +1, plastic x4 and no ability to single feed
    The pics tell the story but I think the old girl is smoother (due to a lot of experience and use?)
    Believe it or not, the old girl is skinner than the younger one!
    Old girl is blued and the young one is "mannox"ed and I think not as durable.

    Enjoy

    A little pic heavy

    I sold an identical MS .270 with a Kahles scope and Pachmayr Lo-Swing mounts back in 1975 (43 guns younger). Beautifully made and finished, they couldn't find the staff capable of making them these days. The Steyr Mannlicher rifles are nice but not a patch on the old MS!

    Took too long to edit so here's the update!

    So I've Just finished night shift and I've been trying to add pic's from 11:30 x%$#!.
    Just a little comparison of an or the most Iconic Manufacturer and the best caliber the world has ever known "a" @ryansonghurst !
    Yes a Man licker! (Mannlicher) Most Guys want at least one!!!
    Kahles scopes, Helia 4 S2 x32 #1 reticle and KX 3-9x42 A4 reticle
    The 1965MC has a flip over mount to easily access the 100/300m iron sights. The Classic's are set at approx 100m
    Steel mag x5 rounds +1, plastic x4 and no ability to single feed
    The pics tell the story but I think the old girl is smoother (due to a lot of experience and use?)
    Believe it or not, the old girl is skinner than the younger one!
    The MC has 2 safeties, the RH one (1st and added due to the ability to mount a scope) blocks the trigger in safe and lets you unset the set trigger when operating the main (front) trigger.
    The wing safety (can not be operated with scope in position, hence flip over mount) disengages the trigger (still full movement) and lets you unset the set trigger when operating the main (front) trigger
    The classic has a 2+1 safety. Red = fire. White dot = safety + cycle bolt to unload. Grey leaver thingy = safety, bolt can't cycle and bolt handle "locks" flush against stock.
    Old girl is blued and the young one is "mannox"ed and I think, not as durable.

    Conclusion,

    The old girl cycles smoothly due to experience (logical)! and smells really sweet (WTF)! and just wants to be held!
    The young girl is a little rough (Lack of use), has a lot of promise and has synthetic bits to try and tempt the younger ones!

    Enjoy

    Yes very nice. I think I like the old girl better even if the action around the bolt looks a little more cluttered, if that's the right word, than the recent version.
    The Europeans have always liked and been good at swing off, moving, or just removable scope mounts

    I agree re mounts. I'm looking for a nice set off swing offs for the classic
