Nice I’ve been wanting a Mauser Model 66 in 243 WIN for about 45 years ever since I had one that belonged to a friend in my hands when I was 13 !

You got ripped off! The bolt is on the wrong side. For me. Beautiful rifle. Hope you enjoy it! Even if it is backwards. :P

Beautiful. I’ve always wanted a full stocked rifle. But, I haven’t seen a lefty version.

That's a beauty! I love the Mannlicher stocks also. Just classy.

Barbarossa,
You’ve got nice taste in guns. Unusually don’t say much here yet it seems many of my recent posts are compliments about your rifles.
Enjoy.
Jason

Very nice ! ! . :)

The only thing that keeps it from being perfect (IMO - YMMV) is that it doesn't have a spoon bolt handle.... 8)

That's easily remedied, though...……. :mrgreen:

Congrats! I too like those Mannlicher stocks. I once built a 308 Win from an old Mannlicher Schoenauer action and a 30 cal water cooled machine gun barrel. I even put the butter knife bolt handle on it. I've no idea how many hours it took me to get that rotary magazine to work with the 308. If I counted my time at $.50 an hour I could have bought a new Steyr cheaper. Traded it for a 4x5 Speed Graphic.

Kids are overrated. You got the best side of that deal. Now as long as neither of the boys read this their mom won't be too angry. :roll:
