    Looks really good. BTW, nice decor in the pics, too. If I had done that on one of the tables here, my wife would have beat me to death with the rifle!!

    That's the nicest wood I've ever seen on a military Mauser! Bravo. If it shoots as good as it looks, you are truly blessed by Saint Paul (Mauser) himself.
     
  12. Very Nice rifle Dale!!! very nice!, i really like the color of that stock, i might just have to get a stock like that for my 98k!
    BTW how are prescott valley guns, i've pasted by there many times, but usually forget to stop by on my way home, i may just have to make a conserted affort to go in there before i move.

  13. Thanks all. The stock is original but obviously was re-done by a professional.

    Jesse, Prescott Valley Guns (PVG) is a place I frequent quite a bit and the only gun shop in Camp Verde lacks much to be desired.

    I like PVG....they don't treat uneducated questioners like dumbies and they have always given me a fair shake. They aren't the cheapest place around but, then again, I'm still searching for that place and they are a little higher on ammo, in particular.

    Their inventory is extensive (much more so that J & G further into Prescott).

    They have wide variety of products...from guns (new and used), ammo, clips, optics, reloading, targets, cases, etc. and are willing to wheel and deal on guns.

    Plus, it's easier to get into and out of than going downtown Prescott to J&G. Besides, my experience with J&G is that they feel too busy to REALLY take their time and answer your concerns (I've even had store guys go on to help someone else while I looked something over rather than seeing if I had any questions).

    The reasons I make trips to Prescott Valley is that it's closer than Phoenix and I only gun shop Phoenix if I am there for something else and, often times the difference in gas and aggrevation driving to Phoenix makes up for the slightly higher prices I might find.
     
  14. That is one sharp looking gun! Nice find. I see you've changed your profile to "closer to Camp Verde". You really had me wondering how a guy could miss his freeway exit when you lived "just nort of the Phoenix area" and end up in Prescott Valley! Have you been to the swap meet in Camp Verde? I havent been in a couple of years but a lot of the old timers would bring in their old guns and sell them. Never know what you might find there. It looks like you live near my old stompin grounds. Born and raised in Prescott the rest of my family all lived in Jerome and Clarkdale before Jerome was a tourist trap. If you are ever in Camp Verde and get behind a slow car with a little white haired old lady driving, dont honk. Thats probably my mom and she can still shoot as good as me. Ha ha. Congratulations.

    The 6.5 mm is a very good long range round.

  16. Well then i must make a trip there post haste!, i share your sentaments, about J&G, and also things here in Phoenix are simply higher that i'd like to pay, esspecialy ammo, although cheaper than it was when i lived in los angeles, it's still higher than just taking a trip to J&G.
    well i'm glad i got to here about them, now i will definatly head in there!
