Spring cleaning

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

My .416 barrel has been head spaced onto my R. Famage M- 98 action. Now my G.S. is waiting for a bolt handle and scope bases. I have arranged to have the barreled action blued, by Dec.. Brownell's seem to be something of a hold up, but the parts are on order. I'll put in some photos as soon as possible. My eyesight is making Express sights, a waste of time, for wringing this wildcat out. I wanted to do an "everyman" version of Prof. Hunter Harry Selby's infamous .416 Rigby, on the military Mauser M-98 action. But I'm going to have to use a scope, with an appropriate sporter stock. Mr. Selby and I are both left handers, shooting right handed bolt actions. My case is smaller, but it retains the classic Rigby's one half inch long neck length and roll crimp. My bolt handle and safety will need to allow for the Scope and it's mountings. Anyway, I'm still closer to the original Rigbys, than any other modern .416 Cartridge. Thanx in advance, Carpooler.
