Not sure about VEctor barrels, but VIctor barrels was one of the trademark names used by CP Donnelly of Siskiyou Gun Works, Grants Pass, OR. Is it possible that the E is actually an I?

Vektor, south african maker.
They are out of business now but here in Norway their mauser actions and 404 and 416 barrels are still available.

One Vektor 404/423 barrel has arrived.
Looks very good, H&H profile, 24,75" long and 3/4" at the muzzle.
Finnish is so good it is just to degrease and blue/brown, no more ploishing required.

Now waiting for a winchester m70 left handed action to arrive.

Looking good, when do you expect to complete the Gunsmithing and assemble the rifle?

Good question! I have no real hurry, it will not be ready anyway for my planned buff (August, 8 months to go)
As a start I am planing to have the barrel installed and chambered, mounted in the stock and shot it to see if any work is needed for magazine and feed ramp. I do not really expect that.

This will not be fancy walnut deep blue steel custom; cerakote, laminated stock, good open sights and steel weaver style qr mounts.
Trying to buy a Boyds Platinium stock, but seems difficult since they do not want to export one. Maybe somone can help me out?

Also wondering about a 2nd recoil lug, do I really need one for a 404? Or will a proper bedding and crossbolts do the job?

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...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice
