    Iím with Roger on this one. I fear the whole rifle is cobbled up and haphazardly stamped in a poor attempt to pass it off as original. I think itís totally bogus except for the telescope itself. A...

    I'm with Rob on this one. I can't for the life of me see how the bolt head jumps up upon firing with the bolt closed. I can see that maybe it pops out of the track after primary and secondary...

    The bases and rings for the TP were not made by Griffin & Howe. They were similar but not identical and made by SAL Long Branch. The whole thing is bogus and cobbled up from what I can see.

    I think the welds are in the middle because that was the easiest place to cut them in the first place.
