    Hey Tommy Gun, they ain't Euro's mate , they are modern day Vikings, just like us, living at the top / bottom of the world, own culture and identity. Yeah don't know about those straight pulls though.

    Maybe a bit of a generalisation, but with military rifles like the Mannlicher and Schmidt-Rubin, and modern sporters from Mauser, Strasser, and Blazer, straight-pulls certainly seem to me like they really took off in Europe but not so much elsewhere, I guess like the Americans have their lever actions.

    Actually a really good description. I have noticed that norwegians and kiwis are a little apart from mainstream Europe. Hunting chamois in Austria was almost a culture shock for me. And what you kiwis consider normal hunting trip is a major expedition to most Europeans, and most of you don't understand how capable you are when compared to hunters worldwide.

    From what I know - euro hunting is more exclusive and restrictive

    Down here it's anyone's game and pretty much everything is a "pest"

    The idea behind straight pull rifles is to reload faster than a conventional bolt action rifle.
    In Europe , wild boar shooting is done a lot in the driving shooting style, with a line of shooters positioned at strategic points.
    You have to be very good at shooting in motion ,running animals, be able to select the exact animal you are allowed to kill among a herd, and also be safe with your gun handling and having a certain etiquette around the whole process.

    So , semi autos were not the most adequate , as for many years ( pre 80's)they used to not always be reliable or accurate enough, if allowed to be used at all in the country of use, and sometime you would have been looked badly at if you were pulling one out on a day s hunt( etiquette)
    That is where blaser and others started to work on the straight pull hunting rifles ( yes I know the Rubin and other military straight pull rifles did exist prior to that, but they did not have that hunting look and were limited in the choice of calibers).

    Well, it has to do with the complicated mechanism, the tight tolerances and the greater number of ( complicated)parts to produce.
    A savage axis is probably the simpliest and cheapest bolt action rifle platform to manufacture at the moment.

    Understand that bit, and they are probably worth it but out of my budget
