Very nice rifle and beautiful wood! I have a 1917 custom sporter in 35 Whelen. Not a long range caliber but shoots lights out. The stock is not near as pretty as this one... Someone put some time into making this one! The 1917 is a great controlled round feed action to build a hunting rifle on. This rifle would make someone a great shooter and conversation starter. I usually get asked "Is that a Mauser?". I'm tempted to buy it just because... Good luck with the sale.
