Agreeing. Perhaps just that a muzzle brake on a .243 Win chambering; a bit 'much'!

These BSA (Birmingham Small Arms England) rifles aren't common, but they're fine rifles. My small 'battery' includes two more in '06 and one medium length action in 257 Roberts Ackley Imp. So... As seeing opportunity for 'play on words'; couldn't resist. BSA1917, Excuse Please! smile

Otherwise... Back to business... Some mighty handsome rifles here! For sure! Kaywoodie
Perhaps on a more serious note, that's a beautiful mauser/great stock! How about some additional details, commercial or custom, etc & maybe a few more 'centerfold pix, etc. It's a great 'teaser', but now kindly 'stand & deliver' on what you started here! smile smile smile

My personal choice in context here, perhaps my Husqvarna, 1955 vintage 30-06. A great exemplar "KISS" rifle. Full 14" stock LOP, looking shorter due to great for me, long forend!
Best

Those are newer BSA rifles than mine. Mine are all early 50's as well, but built on m1917 receivers. They did the best job sporterizing the venerable m1917's and some p14's. Here's a couple more. I may just decide to run the 308 Norma magnum this year, since I have not had a chance to bloody it up:

My old BSA model D, that I foolishly sold:

The other M1917 I posted earlier has been very lucky for both deer and elk.

Here's the original stock from my model E. I gave the rifle to my buddy:

He may use it this year on his deer hunt..



That 308 Norma Mag is a neat rifle !

It's always kinda a special moment when ya run into that someone infrequently. Who looks at someone using a semi custom or custom old school mil bolt rifle as their go to gun for hunting as somehow being limited with some of their urban legend nuggets they drop in conversation.

They dont even know it seems most modern bolt rifles are based on mil bolt battle rifles from the past.
SMH.....



I have shut a few up over the last 4 years.
Good naturedly, but with a intent to be a basic butthead of put up or shut up....

"Hey man pick out a recognizable knot on a tree 50 to 100 yds out brace off the side of this tree here and lets both take one shot".

The 3 or 4 times I have done this I havent had a taker yet....
It's gotta be that they dont know how to brace off the side of a tree and take a shot.
Gotta be......
😄😄😄

1959 JC Higgins M51-L 308 using cast bullets has been a favorite for filling the freezer the last few years. Husky HVA action, barreled and stocked by High Standard for Sears. The HVA action is an improved m96, small ring, m98 length with high quality Swedish machining and steel.
