    inspiring

    Probably one of my favourite video's.

    Very much in line with my ethos, and a true credit to the sport this gentleman is

    Exciting indeed, although he got so close that a spear would have done the job nicely.



    Here's one that I rather liked & perhaps you could tell me about the rifle that appears in detail at 5:30 into it. I'm afraid that my german is non-existant.

    My german isn't that great, but I believe 8x57 IS (CIP version), Saami version is just 8x57 or 8mm Mauser..I'm pretty sure.

    irrespective, it's a full length stocked small ring mauser 98 military action with domed bolt shroud and 3 position side safety. Colour case hardened. It wears Recknagel eramatic pivot mounts and G9 locking system. It is installed with a quarter rib and a one standing/1 folding leaf rear sight. Bolt handle has been shaped to a mix between a straight bolt handle and almost mannlicher schonauer style butterknife handle. There's a barrel band sling swivel which looks to be protruding through the bottom of the full length stutzen stock, of course, with a set of matching case hardened cross bolts.

    The stock has a nice walnut with re-inforced side panels along the receiver walls.

    Not the hardest thing in the world to build, but wouldn't be cheap...I 'do' happen to have just purchased a great small ring mauser action ready to be sporterized, not barrelled, yet, still in the white, stripper clip hump removed, drilled and tapped, and awaiting a featherweight or lightweight shilen custom barrel and believe it or not, recknagel eramatic pivot mounts. Currently in progress of having a 3 position side safety fitted. conveniently there's a nice quarter rib available especially to shilen contour barrels.

    was going to be another .257R,,but...

    just saying'..

    that said...it would be quite lovely without the case hardening and a nice deep rust blue instead,,probably also cutting out close to 1k in build costs.


    also have just procured a persian mauser, 98/29 musketoon..very very rare, Czech made in Brunn to the iranians for their specialist camel troops. turned down bolt handle and checkered underside, lion crest on front receiver ring and side wall markings in farsi...quite a special piece that needs a special build I think..I'd have kept it in original musketoon format, but sadly someone hacked up the stock in a half-sporterising attempt...heresy..

    the one in the original video looks a lot bigger than 8x57
    he mentions Africa and I initially thought it was a .416 Rigby but the lack of belt made me think otherwise

    looking at the action and stock it is definitely a large calibre "African Cartridge" and the glimpse you do get points be in the direction of a 450 Rigby

    Peter was referring to the rifle that appears at 5:30 in

    rather that the original film. That looks from the Mauser website to only be available in .375 & .416.
