    Members, please take notice of the following important information provided by one of our good members HWL, the rifle our good friend MC Heunis describes is the following type of rifle as pointed out by HWL...
    "
    Hi gert....
    MC is not shooting a "Austrian" Werder rifle, but a "Bavarian" Werder rifle.

    I think the admin can and should correct this.


    Georg"

    Thank you kindly HWL for this correction, it is very much appreciated ....
