    Layover in Doha and COVID

    I agree with Red leg. If you want the mrs to shop she can do some serious damage to your credit card just at the airport. I was on the receiving end after only a 4 hour layover only.:mad:

    Comment by 'Buffhunter' in media 'Custom BRNO action Rifle chambered in .350 Rigby Magnum'

    thanks mate. ive got a cz550 458 win mag which i will use which leaves me a spare complete rifle zkk600 in 30-06 pop up peep curved trigger now . May need to sell it. Although thinking about it the magnum action seems very big for a stalking rifle.

    Was the rifle built on a zkk600 or a zkk602 action? I want to build a 350 rigby too and am considering which action will be needed. I wouldve thought the zkk600 might be too short in the mag box.
