I wished I could’ve had more time but I do think I remember seeing it. I love that buttplate style so I’m usually better about this.

it is still really hard to tell if the widows peak is there in that pic. The only reason I ask is because I have seen some that were ground off when the stock was shortened. Guys did that back in the day..

I will disagree as for handling. I think the carbine handles much better than a standard. It really feels good.

It didn’t feel bad to me, I’d just want the lighter stock for all day, in the hand carrying myself. And to not beat up the nice stock.

If i ever find another rusted bore pre-64 M-70 it's going to be a 20" JES rebored 9.3x62mm chunking 300gr A Frames at 2250 fps through custom Quarter Rib Express sight, talk about a light handy thumper to go after Cape Buffalo in the thickets of Africa or deer, hogs or bull Moose ; ]

In the end I decided to pass on this rifle.

There's a BRNO 21H in 7x57 headed my way instead, with a 20.5" barrel.

That would’ve been a hard gun to leave behind

Bingo, that is something Scotty mentioned to me in a text yesterday..


Butt heavy….no where near any semblance of center balance..

Those Brno 21s are nice guns. I really like mine.
