Response to You did a great job on it Ron. Do any internal work? Trigger? Power?
I originally set this gun up to shoot rifle field target (with a pistol). So right away I drilled-out the transfer-port, and got the power up to 13.4 FP.
I finished mid-pack (in Hunter Rifle) in my first effort back when the trigger was breaking at 2 pounds, and realized just how HUGE a handicap that heavy a trigger was on a pistol when contesting Hunter Rifle.
So I subsequently monkeyed the trigger down to 6 ounces; which now seems near-telepathic. In fact i still have to remind myself to not even get on the trigger before I'm ready to break a shot.
Haven't had an opportunity to use it in competition again, but also realized more weight up front would be very helpful for FT shooting. Hence the fat Mannlicher fore-end, which works so well I dialed the power back to 12 FP so i can use her for rifle OR pistol field target.
She's now DEADLY efficient from my pistol field target position, whether off a bipod (Hunter) or my knee.
She'd also make an awesome carbine, and may someday be one.
