    The Belgium grip predates the broom handle by more then 100 years. It is one of my favorite rifle stock grips that and the kings grip forget the real name but from the same part of the world.

    IMG_20180903_142932.jpg hear is one I shoot a bit, just a nice simple German rifle, there's a good chance this action is pre 1900. Here is a 1891 that I made up like a early German rifle.

    the raised panels are always a nice touch. One day I'll build a modern copy so I don't worry when I take them hunting.

    It looks like the standard safety is still present -- how much clearance does it leave you under the scope eyepiece?

    Redfield sight my departed Uncle put on in the early 50s. This rifle was a WW2 "bringback" by him. He was an MP Captain in Europe . He replaced it with the Mannlicher Schoenauer 30-06 I showed in later 50s when he achieved NYPD Gold Shield status.

    Clearance is about 4mm so fine for normal operation of safety.

    Excellent cartridge, 8x60mm. Same 8mm bullet as the 8x57mm standard. Cases at worst can be made from .30-06 brass by shorting the case from 63mm to 60mm and finishing the case mouth. Lube well and resize the neck by adjusting a 8x57mm sizing die to not fully resize the case. Get pretty much the same performance as a .30-06 as the bullets are comparable and the velocities are comparable.

    And the rifles are very nicely assembled and finished. Made by people who really love rifles and take pride in their work.

    Yes, I did that conversion 30-06 to 8x60 but used a Hornady 8x60S full resizing die after trimming to 60mm. 70AD4B67-C8A3-4868-BCEA-926EB35AD4F0.jpeg
