    Well, I found it! It cost me dearly, but I don't care!


    Can't wait to get it in my hands!

    I'm envious. Looks like a nice piece of wood, too. I had an L579 Mannlicher in .308 once, but I sold it to a friend and I've never been able to replace it. Oh well, some day...

    You have to love those Mannlichers. Looks beautiful, 308 is a great caliber. I have one in 7mm magnum. I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy.

    Yes, the full wood treatment gives a rifle a really classy look. And I've found Sako Mannlichers to average as accurate as their sporters.

    It seems that among European hunters that rifles with full wood stocks are regarded as less accurate than half-stock sporters. So I tell my European friends to send me all of their "obsolete and inaccurate" Mannlichers and I'll properly dispose of them.

    I have one. They are a joy to shoot.
    I'm taking it easy with mine and using cast boolits at around 1800fps for my 100 yard range shooting.
