A couple of months ago I was about to inherit my uncle's Winchester 9422 and needed to unload a rifle to get the new license. I had an Anschütz 22 WMR with mannlicher type stock that never got shot since the ammo is ridiculously expensive and so I popped into the gun store to see what it was worth, there however a game changer was waiting. I've been looking for a suitable rifle in 9.3x62 for a long time to make myself a brush gun for wild boar, I had a m/38 carbine stock and an Ampoint laying about and my intent was to make a scout gun out of it. In the store I found a Husqvarna 146 in lovely condition except a ding in the stock. Never been d&t or chopped and threaded for suppressor as so many other has. The 146 has a 98 commercial action made by FN and is chambered in 9.3x57, which for all intents and purposes kills anything huntable in Sweden just as dead as the x62 but with much less recoil. The m/38 is a 96 action so that stock couldn't be used, the old Germanic type stock with a schnabel forend and ski slope butt is very graceful but kicks like a shetland pony and definitely not something I'd like to use. (I've been kicked by a mule and a shettie and there's no comparison, mules are sissies) The long barrel and flag safety reminded me of Rigby's pre war, or rather inter war, express rifles so I decided on the spur of the moment to trade it for my Anschütz. A week before Christmas the police had wrung my application through the mill and I could finally pick it up. By that time I'd also managed to score a Boyds' Heritage stock in walnut for eqv $30 because the ad had it looking like beech and nobody bid. A good starting point for a safari type stock. If the 7x57 had a cooler alias as the 275 Rigby, then I must be able to call this a 366 Rigby which has a much more potent ring to it. Today I sharpened my spokeshave and chisels and started hewing away at everything not in my vision of the perfect snark hunting rifle. Sorry for not posting more images in this long winded and rambling post, but I used to use tinypic.com for my images and they went belly up so I have to find a new provider before I can post my photos.
