I have a Turkish Mauser that I put together with spare parts that I'm guilty of 'Bubbaing'! I would not be found guilty of ruining any weapon that was all original. Anyway, I scoped it, modified the bolt to clear the scope, and shortened the barrel (I did recrown it). Its now my favorite deer rifle for NE Alabama deer hunting conditions.Unfortunately for me, the only Swede I have left is a "bubba'd" one I picked up for a possible project gun. The stock's been cut down; the barrel's been cut and should be recrowned; it has no sights - front gone with the bobbing, rear just gone; still has the straight bolt; a lot of the original finish; and it was never drilled and tapped for a scope. The said part is everything matches! I took it to the range for a test fire and it still goes bang and everything works properly. I'm just not sure it's worth the cost of turning it into a hunting rifle.
