Zapster did an awesome job welding on my bolt handle. It looks like it was born that way.
Finished and ready for test firing.
Summery of this build
Starting out with a well used 1937 Czechoslovakian VZ-24 (Large ring Mauser)
I blueprinted the bolt and receiver and mated it to a Numrich trapdoor trigger guard assembly. Then I inlet it and pillar bedded it into a Boyd's laminate stock.
I re-chambered it to .308 Win. using a 22" Shilen #5 contour barrel with a 1 in 10 twist. I cut off the straight bolt handle and fabricated one of my own, which Zap welded on for Me
I drilled, tapped and installed a one piece scope rail, then assembled it using a Bold Optimal trigger, a Titanium firing pin with a speedlock spring and a sporter bolt shroud.
I finished it off by adding a grip cap, recoil pad and swivels to the stock. Topping it off is a Simmons 4-12X44 scope and a Harris bi-pod. I fully expect this rifle to shoot MOA.
