I just bought an FN 49
The Rolls Royce of battle rifles.

Doesn't get much better than that. I picked up a barreled action for $350. Got a stock and new handguards that need finished and installed. Even bought a spare barrel for it, even though the one it came with was nice and sharp looking. I couldn't help myself. They were like sixty bucks from Sarco.

I just need to bed that action. To many projects in the works right now. As though that were a bad thing.

8mm mauser is a nasty round. A hair hotter than the 30-06. That makes for a pretty awesome battle rifle if you ask me. A bit on the heavy side, but damn, those FN49's are luxurious, ain't they?
