I am going to start a new thread, but also pose ask in this long thread about the Single Shot Stalking Rifle, where it may be lost:
Have any of you owned, used, or shot the single shot Stutzens like the Merkel break action with a full stock?
Is it too short, or is it really handy?
What cartridges have you used in these short rifles, on what, and what do you think of the results vs full sized rifles?
I see some posts of a K95 Stutz in .243 and a .30-06 Stutz.
And a .25-06... is it a Stutzen? Now much does it give up in a short barrel?
The reason I ask is that a friend it going by the Steyr HQ in Alabama today. They are having a sale of inventory, about 30% off the Steyrs and Merkel shotguns and rifles. He is going to see what choices they have. One was a K3 Stutzen in 7mm-08 with Zeiss Terra for $2,895.00.
....up to $6,000 off factory demo guns and writer samples. Customers can stop by the new Steyr headquarters, or they can stop by many local Steyr dealers to take advantage of these great deals.
For additional information, please call Steyr Arms directly at (205) 417-8644.
