Hi bluefish, no you didn't miss anything. My wild ass guess would be a different bolt. After my father in law passed I tried to find all the bits and pieces but a lot of the stuff fell through the cracks. I have the original invoice so I know it had that Lyman All American 4x but in a Buehler mount instead of the Conetrols that Chet Brown put on. Would really have liked to find that.
One box of parts and miscellaneous stuff had the invoice for the Mauser and a service letter from Ruger for the transfer bar trigger assembly on a three screw Single Six 22 mag that was made the same year as me. Fortunately it also contained the old trigger parts so it's back to original form. Gotta love those four distinct clicks when cocking it.
I got this military surplus Brazilian BRNO 7x57mm VZ24 from Century arms for $138 My brother TIG welded the bolt. I rebarreled it with a Lothar Walther barrel to 7mmRemMag. I put a high tech specialties 20 oz stock on it from Brownells or Bansner, that was way too much work. Like body work on a car. I just buy finished stocks now by Mcmillian.

That rifle inspired one of mine that’s making its way to Birdsong for Black-T right now; I call it my “Mexibob”.
Mexican Small Ring 98, beautifully checkered knob, Timney FW, Dakota 3-position, S&K bases/rings, #1 Rock Creek twisted 1-in-9”. Tang was altered to allow a more open grip than “Mauser notch” allows so I had McM custom bed an Edge but by then they wouldn’t McW the Edge so it’s painted. Still looks great and handled nicely pre-stock can’t wait to get it back!
I’ll post pics when I do; I bought the rifle here 10 years ago so it’s been a while!
Don't you ever wonder why In spite of all that's wrong here There's still so much that goes so right And beauty abounds?

They quit offering McWoody on Edge fill due to the black shell. They now do only marble finishes with black backgrounds, so as to not have the black shell color showing thru. McWoody is brown, so it’s out. I’m glad I got mine before they quit. No black showing thru on mine.
Harry Lawson in .300 win mag with a German Pecar 3x7 scope.....mark x action that is glass on rails..the stock has a slight cant where it doesn't feel like a .300 win mag and makes my savage 99 in .300 savage feel like a mule kick over my lawson.
