I spotted this Mannlicher-Schoenauer action on a French website and it made me wonder how one would go about building a rifle around it.
Apparently this action has never been used, itís been sitting around someoneís workshop, and so needs a bit of polishing and so on. Assuming that the action was sound, how would you technically and legally go about using it. For a start, presumably I couldnít easily buy this and bring it back to the UK as I suppose it counts as a firearm. Or perhaps it doesnít, Iím not sure, since thereís no barrel. Assuming you could work out the legal acquisition of this action, how would I go about adding a barrel to it, and then the really difficult and expensive bit, a stock?
I imagine youíd be looking at spending a vast amount of money on this and that it wouldnít make any financial sense.
Iím sure thereís a raft of experience on here on this sort of project.
