    For Finnwolf lovers
    Some interesting points in the article:
    a. I didn't know the early Finnnwolfs were 'micro-grooved' or 12 land models. Earliest one I've owned was 15xx and I don't remember it being 12 lands.
    b. Our Customs Dept (now Aus Border Force) have ruined/marred a lot of rifles, including an expensive one of mine with their stupid drop test to check safety function and for accidental discharge.
    c. DW Custers weren't the distributor for this Finnwolf, even though they have an ad in the same magazine saying they are the Sole Distributors for Australia.


    Cheers
    Piper

    very interesting piper you appear to be very knowledgeable in this area. Also l can remember when these rifles first hit the market. they weren't very popular with shooters because other lever actions were dominant namely Winchesters and Marlins.
