So, my choice is the Manlicher-Schoenauer GK 9,3x62!
Mmmmm...hard question...I am a 100% Mauser Man. But, between that two rifles I must say I like more the GK!!!
I have had a GK like yours...
Hi One Day,
Agree, also! By the way, All my rifles have 60 cm barrel lenght, but that Winchester 70 pre 64 at 25", original barrel.
As I said,...
I like your rifle !!!! The .375 H&H rifles like yours have the best configuration for that cartridge, to me.

And about the...
I also thought about the side mount in this BRNO... My own answer is that in those early BRNO integral machined bases there were very...
To me, the all around .375 H&H Barnes X is the 270 grs TSX! Loaded at 2600/2700 f/s is good for everything.
Great rifle, cartridge, mount and scope!!! Perfect combination to me! The single trigger is original? I know some of the latest BRNO 21 were...
I see a lot of light but strong 9,3 bullets k. Europe.
Anyway, for my taste, perhaps one of the best combination as an all around...

Your pictures are exactly what I was looking for!
Thank you, again, and Best Regards!
Welcome to the forum and CONGRATULATIONS for your rifle!!!!! I have one in 30-06 very similar. Outstanding rifle you have and...
Agree! To me RWS are the best. In all cartridges/calibres I use or have used:
7x57, 7x64, .308W, 30-06, 9,3x62 and .375 H&H. None better for me....
Good work! Agree about your opinión.

In mine, I have a Zeiss Victory 1,-6x42 Ret 4. Non iluminated. I think this is a good combination. Depending on the use, it could be...
Beatiful!! Since its appearance I think the actual Alaskan is near the perfect .375 H&H rifle! Much better than most other .375 H&H, almost all...
Agree. Used the 235 grs BX but I also like the 250 grs better.
Having used the 260 grs N Partition and Accubond, wich I have more...
I used the Barnes X 250 grs, a lot. The original X without any grooves. Spend 5 boxes of them.
In my M70 pre 64 25" barrel, the best and...

Beatiful rifle! Neither me would change a thing!!!
The PERFECT CRF rifle I am thinking about, should be one, ANY, of the Original Sporting Mauser models (not double trigger, by the way).
Hi Red Leg,
Agree, of course.
I am reading the CRF can have faults. Of course! But, to put it right, between a PERFECT PF and a PERFECT CRF M98, as they SHOULD BE, the...
Beautiful rifle, indeed!
I am also interested to know more about the internal action modifications....
The scope was an old Schmidt...
