Classic 60's repro hunting rifle

Recommended Posts

A few months ago, on here, I picked up a basic, sporterized Turkish Mauser in one of my all time favorite-but-never-owned calibers; .257 Roberts. 

Well.... I did a little work, spent a little cash & frankly, I can't not love the improvement!

I picked up a stock on ebay that needed a BUNCH of inletting, but I get bored & it was cheap. I stripped the bolt & fired up my forge, beating the original bolt handle into a nice, elegant spoon handle. Terry Walden spent far too long drilling & tapping the scope mounts, but he mostly got it right.....& I mounted an old Weaver K6W, television view fixed 6 power scope. 

I need to get to the range & sight her in, but man.... she points like a fiiiine shotgun!
