Man! All of those are gorgeous rifles! It's giving me an inferiority complex, one that can only be cured by dropping a big chunk of change on some blued steel and walnut!

This is what the rifle looked like when it was new. I think it looks better now. It has a sweat stained wrist, a few scars from hunting trips, some worn bluing, etc...

Here's a fancy wood hunting rifle that has one heck of a hunting history.

If I didn't already have a 6.5x55 it wouldn't have lasted this long. smile

Thanks for the kind words on the Biesen. I'm very proud to have it for sure.

mine is nowhere near that fancy, but I have a Browning Xbolt in 270 with a wood stock and its been my main hunting rifle the last 4 years. Its scratch and has one gouge, but its a rifle and it still shoots straight and true.

I have a beautiful Browning A-bolt Medallion, which has worn a sleeve to protect the stock since day one.

Have used this one for 25 years and just last year had erniejs made a custom sling for my son's 10th birthday. It has now been passed on to its 3rd generation.

That's a cool looking stock. What type of wood is that?

Not sure, my dad bought it from a lady. It was a custom job given to her by her ex. I believe she said white walnut.
