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'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
