    Awe Austin, it was done...of course, with a brand new carbide 4-flute endmill on a knee mill to minimize burrs and get within 0.0005" of where it was designed to be lightened! HO-Lee smokes, buy without seeing. What "else" was done that is hidden?

    Caveat emptor, I reckon!

    I agree. We can only be certain of ourselves.

    How many original Springfields, Mausers, and Enfields were bubba'd/butchered into "deer rifles"? Brings tears to my eyes just contemplating the numbers.

    Looks good Tahoe and no offense was intended, but for those of us who appreciate old military bolt guns, finding a Mauser that has all matching numbers and is in otherwise great conditition, cut down into a "deer" rifle is just sad...a piece of history lost. I have a Swedish Mauser in my collection that I personally cut down when I was young, stupid, and unknowing of what I had - purchased for $69, all matching numbers-including the stock. I keep it to remind me that even the best of us are entitled to make mistakes. You have a fine rifle there, enjoy it!

    Thanks 28,
    that was a "Big 5" $100 dollar special with a badly cracked stock; when I saw it (7 years ago) I bought it with the intention of making a sporter out of it. :eek:
    She shoots an honest 1-1/4" @ 100 and 3" @ 200 with Nosler Ballistic Tips :D
    I have others that maintain their military heritage.
