Very nice rifle. I don't intend to be negative but as good as that rifle looks, I think I'd loose the phillips head screws. Should not be hard to replace with some slotted screws.
Just my two cents, if it is worth that.

Very neat rifle. Ahh the Germans. Gotta love their proclivity to taking something and making it just a bit more detailed and complex.

Yeah, but it beats someone putting a bunch of gay-azz tacticool crap on it.

Good looking rifle. Really diggin' the cartridge trap on the stock.

Those Germans don't hold back much. Normally not a fan of carving but it is so well executed and complements the engraving so well it is a pretty nice peace of work. The engraving is master class and would probably cost more than both my vehicles combined if done here. Nice find.

Interesting that they would choose the 270, don't they know the metro reputation? It would be ideal for the game depicted on the receiver.
