I have to drag my two 88 sporters out. I don't think they've seen the light of day in 15 yrs.

I have two of the Haenel 'New Model' Mannlichers also. Kind of a mix of 88 and 98 features but I do like them, One in 9x57 isn't all that bad except for the coin inletted into the cheek piece!
The other,,the poor gal I think was originally 9.3x57 (bore is .366). Someone had it rechambered to 35 Whehen (!) in an attempt I'm guessing to get more power north of the US/Canada border where rifle originally came from (Moose country).
I tried a few of my 35W rounds through the so-so .366 bore and the results are what I expected.
I'm thinking of rechambering the 35Whelen to 9.3x62 Mauser (should clean up the 35Whelen chamber) to try and save it even with the bore the way it is. It'd be a brute to shoot and the magazine may only take the lighter bullets,,but at least the rifle would be back to a metric.
