So I'll test the waters with this one. I bought this one gently used as well there is 120-125 total rounds through it. So the main reason I'm selling is the twist rate, but that is a reason this is quite a unique piece. The action I believe is a commercial Belgian FN Mauser. The flat knurled bolt is the give away to me. I can't tell if it was a supreme or not although I believe it is. It has engraving and I have not found In my research any of these coming with engraving. So it leads me to believe it is not factory. The safety was switched to a Winchester style safety. The trigger is a Timmney. The coolest and special part of this barrel is that is was cut with a new in the white A.O Niedner barrel back in the 1937 by Carlyn Bergman. A.O. Niedner was for the first part of the 1900's considered to produce the finest barrels in the world. Google him and you'll appreciate the history. Here are the specs. The contour is about medium heavy sporter,.690' at the muzzle, 22 1/4'). The shank is approx 2 1/2' long x 1.217' dia., and is center drilled about 1/2' deep. The MAIN REASON for testing the waters it's a 1-12" twist. It loves 100's and shoots sub moa with 120 Nosler ballistic tips over 54.5gr of RL-19 and a CCI 200. it was finished at 21". Yes it does shoot lights out too. The stock is a gorgeous piece of Screwbean mesquite like what was found on the older Weatherbys and is quite rare. Blanks usually Run $500 alone. It has a semi gloss finish and Jim Turner did the work. I was told it's 24 LPI checkwring and in very nice shape. I even have an email from the late Micheal Petrov regarding the authenticity of the Niedner.
So here is the asking price $1600 OBO
I have more pics but this is the only one I can get on here. Text me at(210) 837-6742 for more.
