After shooting the turk mauser the other day, i decided to start working on it for a scout rifle project. i really want to do one of these handy rifles.
it shoots very well, but i don't focus too well with those old irons. a single point of reference is much easier on my eyes. the barrel and action are in great shape. the stock on the other hand is pretty bad. lots of knicks and dings that would make it borderline impossible to refinish and make look any better. i dug out an old stock that someone started butchering before i got a hold of it and began fitting it to the barreled action. then i spent a few evenings coming up with an idea for a scope mount to replace the rear sight. after i finish the stock, all i need is a recoil pad and a scope.
anyone have recomendations for a ler scope?
anyone have any thoughts before i cut the barrel down?
i'm trying to decide between 18" and 20".
