I'd been watching this one for awhile on an auction site and with Clive's assistance am now its new proud owner. The checkering of the stock and receiver were the first attractions, along with the Vetterli style rear sight. Turns out with the heavy octagon barrel, that this has some heft to it as well. I just got it so haven't shot it yet. Last picture is of the 30-30 Win casings and spare bullets that came with it - before anyone "warns" me - I merely seated the bullet with finger pressure for the photo, not a live round.
