    I didn't commission it myself (too broke for that).

    The stock work was done by Kevin Gaskell, and the metal work by Allen Carr (sp?).

    I'm going to get some Conetrol scope mounts for it.

    @Frodo are you actually only 22? Looking at your past and present rifles you are a very worldly young man if so!

    Yeah I'm 22. But I make sacrifices in other areas to afford good hunting gear - I'm not wealthy by any means. Hunting /shooting is a huge passion of mine, and I appreciate fine craftsmanship in firearms. Each to their own though.
    @Pauli, early Sakos are mint. Nice rifle!

    And here is my 7mm08 (first posted in the Gun Porn thread, p149 #2222). Forum member @Bronson provided the Sako AII action, @Danny the Kahles scope, the barrel was purchased off TM, Allen Carr reblued the action and barrel, Arthur Cleland put it together, Kevin Gaskill glass bedded it and added the Sako butt pad, the L579 stock, which is a bit of a Plain Jane, I swapped for an AI stock and I installed a Timney Sako trigger. It wears a DPT suppressor.

    It spits out 162gr HDY ELD-M really fast (I actually don't know how fast, I don't have access to a chronograph). Lets in lots of air into the boiler room of a red.

    Christmas '17/New Year '18 holiday project

    Sadly, my youngest brother, a brickie who worked hard all his working life, suffered a couple of serious cardiac events in the previous 24 months and is now incapable of walking bush edges and gullies etc. Shifting from the North Shore to the Waikato he asked me to dispose of his rifle and semi-auto shotgun as he didn't want to build another gun safe. He duly delivered them just before Christmas. The more I fondled the Parker Hale 25-06, the more I liked it so I took it for a test fire with the entry-level Nikko Stirling scope that adorned it. Managed a best-group of 22mm (3 shots) with 100gr Rem CL factory ammo so I bought it off him and had Kevin glass bed the action. I then set about to refurbish the stock.

    nice rifle Pauli-if you don't mind me asking, what colour stain did you use or is a custom blend to suit?
    Have a project that might benefit from that colour.
