I took it back to Brown Precision and had Mark restock it and coat the metal for me. A much better fit.

Curious how that happened since the win mag has a .532 boltface whereas the 06 is .473? Did I miss something?

When a chamber is cut from the usual standard of .473 to a magnum, the bolt face is opened up and the extractor is modified a bit.

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.

With all those beautiful wood stocked Mausers, it's almost embarrassing to post a McWoody. But, it is an Edge fill and pretty light.

'50's vintage 98 FN with three panel bolt handle, swing safety, Canjar trigger, 24" #2 Shilen, It's a Swede and really likes 139 Scenars over MRP..

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?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

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.

Researching to figure out who built it.
German company Akah built the scope and claw mounts.

Ken,

That's a mighty nice rifle! I love that wood, looks sorta Turkish or Cicassian with those dark streaks..

.404J should make a nice wabbit gun, maybe not up to the .460, but adequate.

BTW, how did you slip that one past Judy? Looks expensive. Did you get her feeling sorry for you... blush

The wood is French walnut according to the gunsmith.

I'm hoping it will work on wabbits.

We made a deal, I can get this rifle but no others.

Not sure even Vagas would cover that one...
