Ok is Scott the guy I keep thinking of? He's supposed to be a Mauser fanatic.
Visiting with him at his shop, I would say he is. He is looking forward to working on a CZ 527 for me and we discussed a little custom that I have it is a mishmash of parts. Action is a combination of 1903 and Mauser cut down and put together for just the right size for the 44 Magnum using Remington 788 mags.
