Re: Hello from Michigan

Yes it is curly maple with walnut the bottom of the forarm is diamond plate with rails screwed to the plate. a rail is mounted under the butt stock and lead is poured in the stock to balance the tracking, no bottom metal only a trigger guard, the barrel is a 30" Hart with brake. Its a beast to carry to the bench but I like the classic look

Re: Hello from Michigan

Curious-why the brake on such a heavy gun...I would think w/o a brake it had much if any recoil??? ps-I love wood stock guns some of them are absolutly gorgeous.

Re: Hello from Michigan

Not sure why the smith in PA put on a brake, with all the lead and lumber its possible he wanted to control muzzle jump ( like a 1.250" dia. barrel would jump)


MagMan did you get my pm?

Re: Hello from Michigan

Not sure if you were the original owner but, is it possible the barrel/brake had a previous life maybe on a lighter gun...then maybe a break made sense???...Anyway it's still one heck of a rig.

Re: Hello from Michigan

The smith who twisted on the tube must have had some reason. Round count down the bore ia at 170, it's still a fresh bore.

Re: Hello from Michigan

Hi Bob, I was born and raised in Muskegon and now reside in NC..but do travel to the home state 2 or 3 times a year...
I am interested in the fact that you used a M96 for your 22, I am a big fan of the 96, did most of my hunting in Germany with a Carl Gustav in the original caliber, paid $85.00 for the rifle and another $400.00 for scope and swenkmontage but it is a tack driver, those German smiths know their business...
By the way that is a great looking stock you have, 63 lbs huh? bet that tames the 300 eh?
Best of luck, and I will be in Michigan next month looking for shrooms, and brook trout...ElDee

Re: Hello from Michigan

Full Auto:

I started smithin Mausers way back when and all have excellent accuracy. The Swede M96 is a very strong action and I don't regret the 22Br chambering along with a 6.5x55 Ackley Improved chambering also. I recently started accuracy testing my M98 in 22-250 and found IMR 4064 to produce 100 yard, sub- 1/4" groups consistantly! I do the builds myself and enjoy the time spent in the shop and developing loads.

Keep em in the X-ring
