.308 Mauser? Action and other parts -- Good buy?
I went to a local store that doesn't really know accuracy. They just sell guns. They had a used one there, and I'm going to have to get a few pics of it. The guy told me he thought that this was a rifle built on a mauser action. On the action on the left side was stamped something about Czechoslovakia and a couple other words and didn't make any sense to me. It was chambered in .308.
Then this puppy had what looked to be a 26" bull barrel (It was about 1" short of 3 of my pinkie-to-thumb mesurements, which is 9" long). It was on a custom laminated stock with nice palm swell and cheekpeice. It also had mounted a Bushnell 4-12 x 40mm on it.
This was priced in the high $900 range. I know he'd start bargaining on it. I'm not really looking to spend that right now, but I am wondering if this wouldn't be a better option that buying a new savage, working it over, putting glass on it, etc.
Any thoughts? I'll get some photos next Friday when I go in when he gets some "new" used .22's.
