If there is any reason not to buy this gun, stop me now!!!
I hear they are the same gun..also sold under the Charles Daly name.
I heard the bolts are tight and sticky, how is yours?
i have a 799 in .223 and i've been considering buying one in 22 hornet.
i bought mine back when bass pro had them on sale and as soon as i got it home i whacked it on the head and gutted it out.
its being built as a mickey mouse version of a british style safari rifle.
the stock is being reshaped to use as a pattern to be duplicated. it has a lot of drop and a little bit of cast-off. the bottom metal has been reworked into a drop box and the side button floorplate release is being changed over to an in the bow release. the triggere is from a sako and fits the reshaped triggerguard perfectly. i still need to make the banded rear sight base and front sight, the standard necg stuff is just to big to look right on this project.
the left side of the receiver is going to be reshaped similar to a g33/40 to get rid of the lettering a make it look more like a mauser, the thumbcut has been put in the left side of the receiver and a single rear square bridge is going to be welded on.
as soon as i finsh my 375h&h mauser project i'll get back to work on the mini mauser project
