Whenever I see rifles like this, I think “Wow. Really Nice rifles. Too bad the bolt handles and cheek pieces are on the wrong side . . .”

One plus is that temptation is greatly reduced due to the extremely limited market.

The burdens we lefty’s have to bear!

Now I must get back to my search for a left handed Sedgley . . .

I just did a LH Ruger M77 Mk2 for a guy. It's the only controlled feed action in Left hand that is still pretty affordable and they make nice looking classics.

Here's my contribution. I have yet to identify the maker.

According to the Rusch family, it was custom made for Reynold H Rusch - He was from Minocqua, Wisconsin. I was told it was made for him in the 1950's or 60's, perhaps by a Wisconsin Gunsmith.

Its built on a 1930's FN 98 Mauser Action ("Greek Contract" w/ Original Factory Barrel in 8x57 cal.)

Here's the specs:

- Mannlicher Stock of French Walnut w/ Metal Forend Cap
- Shadow Out-Line Roll-Over Cheek Piece
- Buffalo Horn Grip Cap w/ Compass
- Buffalo Horn Butt Plate
- Single Panel Wrap-Around Skip-Line Forend Checkering w/ Fluers
- Two Panel Skip-Line Grip Checkering w/ Fluers
- 13-5/8" LOP - 17-1/2" Barrel - 7-1/4 pounds
- Lyman 57 Rear Sight
- Lyman Ramp Front Sight w/ Brass Bead
- Buehler Low Profile Safety
- Jeweled Bolt
- Custom Turned-Down Bolt Handle
- Checkered Bolt Knob
- Checkered Trigger
- Engraved Screws
- Sling Swivels

Shot this doe this evening. I could have shot her with a bow she was so close. But I contend that I have way more satisfaction from being able to use such a classic gun, and with iron sights. I have quite a few more of these full stocked beauties about, and will add them in time. Oh! In case you have missed my other requests: I am looking for original Mauser M Type steel buttplates (either style), and/or Mannlicher Schoenauer steel buttplates. Spread the word and let me know what you have. Thanks, Lance

An 8x57 BRNO round top that I had a little fun with this year. Ironically, I shot the prairie dog with a 196gr. bullet and the deer with a 150gr. The rifle had a set of claw scope mounts already installed when I found it and wears a Leopold 1.5-5 Vari X III.

SAKO try to get more niche in Middle Europe market area so they think bavarian style butt stock will maybe help it...

The Sako Bavarian fullstock looks good but its actually a heavy and bulky rifle. I had one in 30-06...had.
