I'm no photographer so the pictures suck.
This was built for me by Bellson. Here's what he wrote:
This beast started out its life as a Persian Contract in 8x57 Mauser w/ a 29 Inch Barrel. Bought it and a few of its friends at Big 5 for $58.00 each.
These rifles were very used and abused! Rust, Pits, and you do not want to know what else. One had a bulged barrel!
Then I bought several of the Parker Hale Target Barrels from Numrich, $72.00 each. If you don’t know, these barrels were the basis of the Parker Hale Target Rifles that were sued by British Military Cadets for their competition shooting. Chambered in 7.62x51 NATO, 25 ½ Inches long, 1-10 twist, and really nice steel. A lot of meat to work with.
Add a micrometer, lathe, and a great deal of patience; sprinkle on some select parts and you have a nice single hole punch that works out past 800 Meters. Maybe Staples should stock these….
On the target picture, hole next to center is the cold bore shot at 400 yards. Shot group (5) to the right is because a breeze came up.
