Picked up a custom Mauser with the barrel stamped:
W.A. SUKALLE-GUNMAKER-PHOENIX, ARIZ. Have any of you
guys heard of him? Better than average custom gun in
my opinion. Regards, Jericho.

I'd like to see a pic of this one.

Which Mauser action is it?

I think Sukalle's shop is where Cactus Jack first encountered a Minar sporter;Sukalle barreled up some of Jack's early rifles IIRC.There was a Sukalle mauser in 270 on Gunsamerica recently.

One of Jack's most accurate rifles was an '06 with a 1:12 twist Sukalle barrel. Shot all loads to the same POI at 100yds, and shot 'em well.

Man oh man, how did you ever get close enough to that rifle to know all of that to be true...? \:\/

You the owner of it these days?
