serial #244697, 7mm-08, 19 1/2? custom featherweight barrel with a bright excellent, as-new, bore. This is an absolutely lovely full-stock Mannlicher-style upland rifle. The barreled action retains 99% lovely custom satin blue finish, the bolt body remaining bright, the balance of its hardware matching the barreled action. The rifle is stocked with a blind magazine and has a lovely sporting triggerguard with hidden internal front screw, the action fastened to wood with front and rear guard screws only, as is optimal. The rifle is stocked full-length in a very nice grade of Circassian walnut, the stock rating excellent to as-new and does not appear to have been hunted. The rifle features flawlessly executed borderless wrap-around checkering patterns at both grip and forearm, flawlessly fitted Niedner-style checkered buttplate and blued steel pistolgrip cap with a very nice rounded shadowline left-side cheekpiece. Roy Bedeaux?s inletting is perfect over all, the metal appears as though the stock grew around it and the classic style stock is perfectly executed with a 13 5/8? length of pull. The rifle is fitted with a nice pair of Conetrol steel bases and 1? rings awaiting only your quality optics. Everything a Mannlicher rifle should be, this lightweight, carbine-length mountain rifle is just the ticket for the high country or extended carry. The trigger has been neatly tuned and has a crisp about 3 1/2# break. It has been said before, I will say it again?..perfection in wood and metal. (38893-2) {MODERN} (2000/3000) SOLD FOR $2,530.00
