yes I did, it was cheap enough so I went with it, I have bought from Samco before there rating system is very very good , if you buy a faire gun , you can expect a good to very gun, their shipping is slow but will worth the wait

Thanks Norm....I just went the poor boy special. I'll load up some milder NATO rounds for her.
What do you shoot out of yours? Ammo wise that is.

now this has got me thinking. back in 1985 when i was in el paso i pickup at a local gun store a mauser in 308 win. so i am now thinking maybe a got one. my has german marking on it. i thought someone had re-barrel the gun to 308 win. back in them days we were making all kinds of silhouette rifles and pistols from normal guns trying to find what would give us a leg up in the matches. i use the gun in several long rifle silhouette matches. it is a good shooter, but not a good a my remington 700 bdl with a weaver t-scope (real weaver scope). anyway nice looking gun.

My "attempt" at humor was concerning the leaf in your pics Norm.

Gun looks good....I love a project.
