    Hi everybody, I recently bought a Parker Hale rifle in .308, it was advertised as a tx 1200 target rifle, but from what i've read, the tx 1200 is supposed to be a single shot, mine looks like one but has a four round mag, the barrel has no markings on it but should say the make, model and calibre. Can anyone help identify it? I doubt it is a C3 or M82, which are both based off the tx 1200, but maybe it has parts from one. Any help would be appreciated :) . note; it was painted black when I bought it.

    It just appears as a hunting rifle. PH built a number of rifles on Mauser actions though. It is a 308?

    Yes, it's .308, but the barrel is about an inch thick and free floated, it seems very similar to the tx 1200 target rifle, except it's not single shot and the stock isn't as thick and doesn't have the hand-stop thing.

    Its pretty clear to me somebody bought a PH hunting rifle and added an aftermarket heavy barrel for target shooting.
