Thread: First rifle!

  1. #1

    First rifle!

    I finally got my hands on my first rifle last weekend.
    I went for a Steyr-Mannlicher Classic Halfstock in .243 with Warne mounts, a Zeiss Duralyt 3-12x56 scope and a Wildcat Predator 8 moderator.
    Still not been able to put any rounds through it but patience is a virture apparently!

    I have to admit I'm not a big fan of Steyr's but, that is a very nice looking set up.

    Where did you get it?

    Thank you for the comments Gents.

    Webby, I was very fortunate on this one. A certain female friend had an offer from her credit card company telling her that any purchase over 250 would be interest free for a year - she made me an offer - I accepted. I just need to pay her back in the next twelve months.

    Moses, it came from the Sportsman Gun Centre in Exeter. They're doing a Zeiss combo deal with the Mannlicher, you can see the offer on their website or in this weeks Shooting Times. I got a fantastic deal on the whole set up, gun slip, cleaning bits, 100 rounds and sling. I was going to go through their stock of these to pick the best wood but this one was the first I looked at, the wood is really nice and I'm really pleased.

    Thank you norma. Apparently this is the upgraded wood version that also comes with a pre threaded muzzle for the mod. I got it for the price of the old version as the guy didn't realise it was in stock.
