Built by the talented & well respected Bob Harvey formally of Bailons of Birmingham.His workshop is now at Garlands shooting ground at Tamworth. Caliber is the popular 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser.Considering this rifle was built in the early 70's it is in very good condition & has not seen a lot of use, However there are a few small marks here and there. The rifle is built around a Mauser 98 action which is bedded and screw cut 1/2" its fitted with a Khales 3-12x50 scope in 1inch Apel swing off mounts and a spare set of rings,it has a Timney Trigger fitted and a detachable magazine. I still have the original floor plate and twin triggers to go with it. A butterknife bolt handle, detachable magazine, subtle engraving, crisp checkering, nice padded leather sling and quick release swivels.

I want £800 for the lot or £500 for the rifle.

cheers Steve

Looks a fantastic setup for someone. Occasionally something like this comes along and I wish I was starting out looking for a rifle again!

Cheers Mate,
I've moved over to the dark side and want a barrel for my R8 pro success selling this set up won't even cover the cost, I must be crazy to part with it. If the firearms law wasn't so daft I would love to keep it.
