    I know this is a longrange site but I got this gun the other day. I do some benchrest shooting and this thing really tickled me! All comments welcome.

    I love it!! Very old school and cool. I would look for an old scope for it. How does it shoot??

    Well because of that huge steel block clamp in front of the reciever the crappy rings that were on it in this photo allowed the scope to sit too high. I have to come up with a solution. The scope hits the block so either I have to mill down the block or get a different scope.

    I think its a really early version of a benchrest gun.

    I think Arnold said it best in one of his movies, something like "you are one ugly mother f#&*er"

    But hell I have some ugly shooters:)

    You need an old 20x J. W. Fecker scope to go on that rifle. That was state of the art Bench Rest hardware back when.
