    Mannlicher stock project

    So I decided to have a stock made for my Sako 75 in .243 Winchester I have had a hankering for a sako Bavarian for ages but got offered 1000 as a trade in for the 75. So with 2800 to play with I would see what I could come up with.

    Managed to find someone to do it not too far from home. He tried to start an account but failed so is posting on another forum

    Rifle will end up 20" barell, deciding to creakote or just mil spec

    Have a peep in the way and will fit a front sight too

    Check out the progress here and will update with other mods as we go

    Cheers

    Dino

    That's going to be real nice

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    The first classic rifle that I ever laid eyes on, apart from the tomatoe stakes of the day was a Mannlicher 7x57 in a hut in the Urewera and I have had a hard on for them since that day. Thinking very hard about doing one for the Finnwolf.

    What the ball park on cost for that stock? I gather he would charge less for a "normal" stock?

    Stock really coming together now

    This stock will end up around 1200

    Depends on your blank and also hardware

    Not sure how much extra labour involved in the Mannlicher, a bit, especially having the cheek piece

    He fully going for a fitting on the weekend then just a couple weeks

    Cheers

    yeah, what MSL said

    Garry is really passionate about what he does, loves making stocks and does a number of projects for himself

    I was not trying to imply the cost was too high, given the effort going in its bloody good value

    Cheers
