    Im thinkin thats probably it.

    I took a look at it on optical comparator. It looks ok but a smidgen on the small side. Hard to measure dead nuts with ancient comparator. Ill shoot it and well see.

    I do it in sections.

    This old Mauser IS a fussy bed job. Im going to do the rear pillar first. Once that is done ill have a better shot at doing the recoil lug area and the first inch or so of the barrel. Then for the...

    Old Mousers

    I had a very similar gun to the one you mentioned. It was a M98 action on a huge Fagen mahogany stock. White line recoil pad and large Monte cheekpiece. It started life as a Benchrest rifle and was...

    Re cut barrel

    A dog point set screw has a dowel pin like on one end rather than a tapered point. Use it like a dowel pin with a drilled hole in your base material and then tighten. Its super strong. Thanks for the...
