    Well, that floats my boat. I have been looking at a Ruger M77 Mk. II in .375H&H, but I have been unable to save my pennies...bought a new rifle last week...and a couple weeks before. :slap-head: But...perhaps that was for the best. Any word on the finish, I'd really like a polished blue...but for the right price I can re-blue it. I will have to make a run to the local fun-store to check on retail for the .375H&H. Mind you I am not adverse to a dealer transfer. ;)

    Target Mauser...lol. I mean I love a nice Mauser, but not exactly a perfect target gun when it has a 3min. lock time is it?

    :)

    Nooooooo, just checked it out, and evil combination of the matte blue and synthetic stock is a deal breaker for me. :banghead: Must have wood...must be shiny. Oh well.

    Wow! I have an older EAA gun and love it. It's solid and very light weight.

    I've been waiting on the mp221 to be imported for 3-4 years now. It is the double rifle chambered in 30-06 and 45-70. I told my FFL holder to simply order me one chambered in 45-70 the first chance he gets. I hope the importation of this firearm is for real this time. I have heard a few leaked in but I have never seen one for sale anywhere.

    There are also others in high grade available in additional chamberings. I don't know the MSRP, but would love a double in 450 NE if it is reasonable.

    I did not know there were other calibers other than the 30-06 and 45-70 offered in the MP221. When they were first announced the MSRP was suppose to be around $500.00. The reason for the affordable tariff was due to the way the barrels are regulated. Something about pressure clamps which did away with expensive gunsmithing of the barrels to get them regulated to the same point of impact. I'm a little bit in the dark here but since Remington was suppose to be importing them I thought I would take a chance. They had to come with some sort of warranty. A nifty affordable double rifle in 45-70 would just have to sell like KY jelly in a prison.

    There are other cartridges...right of the top of my head: .30-06, .45-70, .375H&H, .416Rigby, .458WM, .450NE, .470NE, .500NE, and .600NE (and I may have missed a couple)...but the problem is they are "deluxe grade" and are normally regulated, so they undoubtedly cost a good bit more...how much so I don't know.

    Just checked myself, and apparently (hearsay, so take it for what it's worth), they go for $3000.00+ USD for the deluxe models, and IIRC I have seen the basic models (available in .30-06 and .45-70 only) advertised for about $750.00 USD. The former seems like a good deal for a nice double in a African chambering...just not good enough for my budget. The later seems like an all-around good deal for any double rifle.

    As long as both barrels shoot to POA, that is...:)

    Very true...of course even the best doubles typically exhibit mediocre accuracy...or so I hear.

    Is Remington *completely* out of the "Spartan / Baikal / 798 /799 / Zastava" business now?

    From what I hear they are. I know that the Zastava Mausers (the 798 & 799) are no longer imported by Remington, not positive on the Baikal (Spartan).

    FYI...EAA/USSG will no longer carry/import ANY Bakail manufactured firearms.

    The MP221was only offered in two calibers from USSG, the 30-06 and 45-70, the rifle had a 'jackscrew' type adjustment device between the barrels to regulate the second barrels POA.
    You would sight in one barrel and then adjust this jackscrew to bring the other barrel to aim.

    If USSG/EAA has any left, the MSRP is $930. I should think they would be in the neighborhood of $200 or so less than this price for the dealers.

    that was on military rifles. its very easy to shorten lock time on a mauser, even easier if your a manufacture like zastava.
    the easiest way to shorten lock time is to recut the cockingpiece to reduce travel. on a military cp you can only get by with cutting about .060 from the cockingpiece but on a flat bottom commercial cp you can go over .150+ with no problems. then add a new spring & tubb firing pin. you will have to use a aftermarket trigger with a side safety or recut the cp to work wityh a win70 style safety. if your a manufacture you can also ream the reaceiver just a few tousandths over the bolt diameter to take any slop out.

    someone forgot to tell WAFFEN PRECHTL BIRKENAU that you couldn't build a modern mauser sniper rifle. the only thing that gives it away as a mauser is the bolt & the ejector box

    Interesting, Jim, but makes since when you are building new. I can see how it would be possible and simple to create a more favorable lock time, thus making it comparable to a nice M-70, which as most know can have a good lock time and great trigger. I suppose I am brainwashed by too much time behind a mil-spec Mauser and not enough time behind a custom commercial Mauser.
