action and inherent accuracy of a Mauser. I shot in competition using an Argentine Mauser, much older than the 98 but nontheless easily kept up with the semi-auto shooters.

Interesting, got my old books out, and i see that the Argentines adapted the Mauser 1891 in the first year. That means the 1891 was only in service for 8 yrs or so before being replaced by the 1909, they both used the same bayonet.. Did yours still have the lugs, and by chance did you also have the bayonet. Thinking thats a great piece, and way more accurate than i could ever make it shoot. Do you still have it.

Isn't there a lot of chances for ricochet shooting at those rocks?

a rifle receiver built? I'd like to have a .357 single shot drop block similar to Remington Rolling Block or Stevens Favorite.

single shot

Unless you have a few grand to throw
around just pick up a new New England
single or combo for a few hundred.
I have a 357 and also a 223, the 223
would be easy for a kid even comes in a
kids model if you wanted one. Easy to scope
if you waanted, the rolling block might be
more difficult.

As long as it meets Federal Laws re: length of gun, bbl, mag size and not full auto. It is not going to be cheap! But what is except ebear, he charges everybody a quarter...lol

a Martini action would be a good one for building a .357 on and the actions are readily available and are reasonably priced.they are a falling block design and are real strong too.Rossi sells lever action .357 and .44 mag rifles.

cheap in the '60s. I'll go looking, Thanks for the idea!!
Back in the '50s the Remingtons were going for well under $50 in 11mm and 7mm, Egyptian and Turk I think.
The deal is that I'd like to get something big enough for white tails but small enough for my g-son.

I've kept a look out and found a break action one but that's not classic.
