Hay Kevin Cram will you build me ome of these?
Yes, that original caliber 7,62x53R is still very famous for moose hunting here in Finland.
Most of those rifles are in poor condition..and value of these is from 40€ to 150€.
8,2x53R and 9,3x53R is not so usual, after WW2 came law that you have to use rifle over 8mm bore for moose hunting. This law fell late -60´s.
Reason for this law was saving military rifle for later need charting. That´s why 8,2 and 9,3x53R were born.
This rifle is my wife bequest, we use is mostly for moose-, and other big game hunting.
