Here's my much loved 6.5. Bore akin to a dark railway tunnel, one can just see the 'tracks'. But it shoots well.

Chopped off when I got it, I have been improving it over the years but have never gotten around to a much needed refinish yet.

If the rifle matches the stock, that's a Steyr 03 M-S, isn't it?

Paul breakey has an odd one posted on the Steyr Forum over at Gunboards----a mysterious Steyr in one of the Greek 03/14 stocks.

Worth a look.

Although, gentleman that he is, he did let me fire a few rounds through her on Saturday. :roll:

I was surprised you sold it when I seen it on the range not like you to let something like that go.

Dromia must have caught Joe at a weak moment, but then again, Dromia doesnt look like someone you would want to argue with any time soon!!!!

By the way, great lookin rifles you have krinko!!!!!!

Very nice Krinko, very nice.

I have to say sir that over the years of watching some of you collection grow you are a person of excellent taste.

Don't regret selling me that rifle Joe, just think of how good I've got her shooting with cast boolit loads those 100yrds groups were good now. Also getting her to behave on an indoor 25 yrd range is worth it for the dropped jaws it gets.
