    No, I have not seen one. They are here in the US, just being ballyhooed. Having become accustomed to the roller safety of the SBS 96 on my .308, I like the way it locks the bolt handle down close into the wood, like the old rifles. It is quiet, too. But this looks very good for moving to Fire quickly.

    I just received my Pro Hunter 7x64 with iron sights. Now, to find a wood stock so I can dress it up for special occasions.

    If I could find a stock, I could duplicate it, or any part of it, without damaging it. I may just have to build one from scratch within the next year, starting with the dimensions of the molded Pro Hunter stock. I just picked up a spare one for $80.00 US.

    What calibers are you shooting in your Pro Hunters? I am hoping this 7x64 shoots like my .308 Win does, and with all sorts of ammunition.

    6.5x55 and 308 both like Norma obviously and geco which half the price
    my pal shoots a classic half stock in 7x64 and that loves Norma too
    bang onto boyds for us will you they would have a good market here I'm sure at the prices they charge .

    Can you find Remington or Hornady ammunition for the 6.5x55, .308 Win and 7x64mm? I can tell you which ones work best in my rifles.

    If you or your friend handload, I can swap load data. My Mauser 7x64 fullstock likes Norma 150-gr ammo, so I am trying to replicate that with 150-gr Sierra and Hornady 154-gr bullets.

    Sorry southern we re not home loaders I found the mannlichers preferred the euro manufacturers ammo over the us stuff geco seems to be the way forward for the moment ,keep us informed of your stock progress .

    Looking at the sales blurb on the link, the main thing I don't like is the dull phosphated steelwork - I still prefer the good ol' bright gloss blueing on a classical rifle like this - Purely isthetics.
    I do like the idea of the decocking system. I hope it is a reliable one & not too complex for stripping / cleaning etc.
