    Jadek The Interarms Mark X were barreled actions imported from Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and made by a company by the name of Zavodi Crveno Zastava. The Mark Xs were shipped with no sights, or wood. Interarms stocked them here,useing poly eurothane wood finish, and added aluminum adjustable sights where iron sights were on them. They came in Mark X Alaskan chambered for 375H&H and 458 Win Mag, (This rifle some call Whitworths, but that is not the case) the Mark X sporting rifle chambered for 22-250, 243, 25-06, 270, 7X57, 7mm rem Mag, 308, 30-06, and 300 Win Mag, sold new in i972 for $225. The MarkX Viscount same specifications as the sporting rifle only plainer, and sold for $195 The Mark X Cavalier chambered for the same cartridges as the sporting rifle, but with a better stock, and a recoil pad. Sold for $330. The MarkX Mannlicher (STYLE) rifle same chamberings as the sporting but with a full length stock, and butter knife bolt handle, sold for $325.

    Then Interarms also imported the Whitworth African express series rifle which was made in Mannchester England on the Zastava action, By the Whitworth rifle Co. This model sold for $450 and was only chambered for 375 H&H, and 458 Win Mag.
    This was a far more sunstantual rifle, in both quality of barrel and fit and finish. The Whitworth rifles were fitted with a 3-leaf express rear sight, ramp hooded front sight, on a 24" heavier barrel, A Classic english style stock with a recoil pad, and ebony fore-end tip, QD sling swivels the front one mounted on the barrel.

    The Whitworths are easy to spot, on top od the reciever ring is an oval with the word WHITWORTH inside it. The name is stamped again on the left side of the Reciever ring in smaller letters. On the left rail of the action is stamped with the Interarms star, Alexandria, Va, INTERARMS Manchester England, and the CZ in a circle. The recoil pad also has Whitworth molded in the rubber. On the right side of the rear action ring there are two screw holes, right at the stock level, for a reciever rear sight. Just below these two screws is printed the month, and year the action was made.

    The interarms stocked an finished rifles are good actions but lack the smooth surfaces of the Whitworth rifle build in Engalnd on the same action. The interarms stocked rifles are good work rifles, and command decent prices if clean. The Whitworths however are jumping in price every day. I bought four of the whitworths when they sold for $450 back in 1975, and they are now selling for one in decent shape foor around $1000, and some higher. I still have two of them both 375 H&H, one ina synthetic stock for hunting in Alaska's rainy weather, and the other in it's origenal wood for use in Africa's drier climate. I have not had one minutes of trouble with these whitworth rifles, and they have been all Over Alaska, and most of Southern Africa.

    PS: when looking for scope bases they use the ones for the FN Mauser. And the actions are simply Yogoslavian made FN Mausers made on the machines baught form FN and moved to Belgrade, Yougoslavia.
    .............................Hope any of this helps

    It seems Remington finally used ther heads, and started building rifle on a CRF (CONTROL ROUND FEEDING) action with their new 798 rifle. No rifle chambered for a cartridge that could possibly be used to hunt dangerous game should ever be made on a push feed action!
    The Remington 798s are a little rough, but are a far better starting point for a well finished proper feeding dependable rifle than the mod 700 push feed. That is if it is to be used for anything that "KILLS BACK"!

    Enjoy your new rifle! :beerchug:

    I agree about CRF. I don't want a push feed if I'm in dangerous game country. I never understood why Roy Weatherby went with push feed on his fine rifles.

    Moosemike, there is only one reason any firearm manufacturer goes from CRF to push feed. They are cheaper to make Period! The only improvement is to the maker's bottom line.

    WBY used to build all thier rifles on FN Mauser actions, Remington rifles were CRF, before the 700 came out, Browning, and even Winchester went that way with the post 64 Mod 70. Winchester soon found that was a mistake, followed by Ruger, they went back to the CRF actions. Only lately has Remington gone back to CRF with the Rem 798 built on a Zastava action, which is an FN Mauser clone built on FN machines baught from FN and moved to Belgrade, Yugoslavia.

    Browning, Sauer, Steyr Mannlicher, Remington, SAKO, all went to the PF action about the same time, with some rediculous marketing things like RINGS OF SAFETY, or some such nonsense. The PF system is not better just cheaper, and the only thing good about push feed is it makes the company's bottom line higher, while giving the buyer an inferior product, and telling him they are giving him something better. :thumbsdown:

    Rear sight for a Interarms Mark X

    I want to purchase a rear sight for this rifle but have been unsuccessful in my attempts to locate a retailer or a website that lists this item. If anyone has any suggestions on where to look for a sight, please let me know.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a substitute sight to fit this rifle?

    Thanks

    Hey, I have a .300 Win Mag as well from Interarms. Does anyone know where I can get an original Interarms wooden stock for mine? Are any of you willing to part with your stocks? It's all the rage to replace them with a synthetic these days. PM me, I'll pay cash of trade.
