my custom mauser k98 .243

hi guys i just finished up my custom mauser chambered in 243. i built this rifle from the ground up only starting with just the receiver. it has a full adjustable cheek rest and recoil pad. if i were to make a guess i would say i have about 100 hours in the project.

parts list,

black walnut, curly maple, and thin slice of cherry
A&B 24" stainless barrel
Timney trigger with side safety
savage bolt handle
full scope rail
leupold 6.5-20x40 VXIIILR
glass bedding
free floating barrel

    If a rifle can be sexy....THAT IS IT!

    How does it shoot? does it matter?
