    Put a new stock and scope set up on my old action.

    Got it all fitted and installed. Now to tear it down, shorten the barrel by three inches, trim just a touch off the chamber end and refinish the chamber, face the bolt face and lugs, face the action, and breath some awesomeness back into this beast.

    not a mauser, but I got my first bolt gun six-ish months ago, a remmy 700 (308).

    finally got the chance to take it out to 100-125 yds on Monday; damn I am hooked on bolt guns now. ive been looking into old bolt guns, suddenly I NEED one. :banana:

    Bolt guns are a different type of fun. They can be made to be just stupid accurate. My next build for myself is going to be a 22-250 on a k98 action using the arch angel stock and timney trigger and glass in the 18 to 24x range.
