Thanks, Red Leg--I was kind of hoping you would chime in on the scope issue. I've been researching a suitable arrangement for this rifle, ruled out German claw mounts, and was slightly leaning towards EAW. But you're right, Talleys are wonderful and can be mated to their quick-detach system. If you have any other advice, I'm eager to hear it.Very, very nice! I would absolutely scope it - something modern but Germanic. Talley’s are hard to beat. Look very similar to the inter-war British mounts only they work.
Not to hijack the thread, but you can't write something like that and not give details.Rigby for me. I have one on its way, Christmas has come early.
