Agree with that. I thought the same thing when I saw that rifle.

Same goes for chamberings. American actions get American chamberings. M98s get Euro chamberings.



Are Lederhosen required with the M98 too? Thanks

That's not a bad idea but I'd be worried about stepping on Roger Renner's toes. He makes a specialty of modifying Rugers like this and more importantly he's a really good guy, and I'd hate to think I did anything that might encroach on his livelihood.


Gunnery, gunnery, gunnery.
Hit the target, all else is twaddle!

Yes...but you are not allowed to enjoy them.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

Yes I bought one but have yet to shoot it. The workmanship seems very good and action is slick. Once the weather allows (cooler) I will take it to the range to break in the barrel.

I like it bunches and I don't like single shots.
