Even today, it's hopless to competete with a Mauser M98.

But should be once the last stand for the Mannlicher-Schoenauer,... I'll be there.

What is it with R8 owners? They take every opportunity to explain to the rest of us why their rifle is the only one worth consideration. Glad you enjoy them but please stop infecting every other thread with R8 propaganda. We get it. You spent a lot of money for an ugly rifle and you need to explain why. It's become very tedious. How many times does the OP have to say he doesn't own an R8? Jeezle Pete.....

To the OP, take the Mauser 9.3x62.
You're quite wrong. I spent reasonable amount of money into enticing symphony of steel and synthetic polymers.

HWL, Africa is too much about the romance of the Safari to not pay heed to the 'rightness' of all you put into it. The mauser wears a nice stock and looks every bit the part. The GK wears the plainest stock I have ever seen and just doesn't evoke a safari feel. Go with the mauser, coupled with a good hat and some Courteney's you are ready for Hemingway himself to show up!

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
