    Here's a mini version, Obendorf Model B in 6.5x47 (originally a 6.5x54 Mauser but when we restored it, the more modern chambering better suited the mag box length, and oh try getting brass in the Mauser version!!). This little Kurz at 6.5lbs scoped and ready to shoot proves that there's nothing new under the sun in terms of lightweight rifles either !!




    That right there gets my tongue hard.

    Army and Navy address in London on the dust cover. Light engraving over all parts, including the magazine and buttplate. The foreend tip is actual horn. A pure silver escutcheon (blank) under the rear stock. Wraparound flat top checkering.

    Did you fit the recoil pad to the Featherweight?.
    I've had two of these in 30-06 and they have both had the factory ones.

    Ernie, no I didn't. I would rather have the factory one to be honest, but she is a good rifle, totally reliable in every way, and lucky too. So I won't change her.

    Guys, don't let those nice wood and blue rifles near an alloy, pistol grip, modern "weapon".

    They will shag anything...

    Year I got it from NZ Walnut. Just goggle him.
    The first bit I was not so happy about so he exchanged it no problem.
    This peace is a treat. Should have paid more in the first place, but it's hard to judge by a photo.
    Anyway barrel is nearly done. It's going to proof after Christmas then the bolt gets jewelled.
    Then the stocker dose his bit and I finish it off with about twelve coats of akin oil.
    Then beding compound form Nathen Foster.
    So with luck it'll all be done by next Christmas

    Or where you talking about the SO4 which I picked up in rather poor nic.
    Stipped it done and raised all the bruises out of the stock, got rid of the terrible pistol gip.
    Then coated that up the same way. I think it's about the ninth one that I've done:
    The Winchester and BLR have had the same treatment.
