    '43 Garand, love this one- it's a bitser but it's so nice to use, I just don't care. Cost me $640 in '98 I think.

    Some sweet shooters there! How do you find the CZ550FS Carlsen? I've been thinking about getting one... What's the calibre?

    1950's Winny pre64 30-06, barrel is a bit past-it but it will still put 3 Hornady Interlocks into an inch. Flat base projies seem to suit worn bores and this pig didn't know the difference...

    That one in 6.5x55mm.

    The first thing you will notice is that for a 20' barreled carbine, they are touch heavy. And big round the action. If you put a scope on it the rifle would be 9 lbs. But if you like old Sakos you won't notice.
    This one also has a plastic floorplate. (Probably weight savings.) You can replace it with a metal one from CZUSA. I don't believe they make them with a plastic one anymore, although I could be wrong, that might only be for the American market.

    Ha! Nah, plenty of people out there with nice guns. I only have a few, but keep turning them over, guns for me are generally a self funding hobby as long as I buy well.
    I'll keep posting a few up though, cos that's what keeps these threads interesting!

    Yes they do look a little chunky. I did think that I might thin it out a bit, but maybe I will start from scratch with a barrelled action. They are great for climbing when it gets steep though, so much better than holding a barrel as a walking stick!

    Nice stag that you have there with your BLR. That looks to be an old Belguim made one as well. What caliber is it?
    I found it hard to get the scope set up right on mine. Trying to get them low enough so that you could get a decent check wield.
    I solved that problem by adding a muzzle break. But with the short barrel it makes it bloody LOUD

    Here's a 6mm Rem on a VZ33 Mauser action, put together by an old family friend L.Jackson. He was a lefty as you can see. He crafted the stock from Nz Walnut and it has a bit of cast off too. He also made the trigger himself, similar to a Timney unit and the trigger guard has been slimmed out.This action (like all VZ33's I come across) is beautifully made, and being factory built as a mountain troops rifle, is alot lighter than the standard large ring 98.
