Interesting. I just saw a similar rifle with the same background of being imported from Canada. Originally I was under the impression there were no sporters made on the 95 action. However after further research I found that a village in Austria, Ferlach, had a series of guilds and produced custom sporting weapons. This area of Austria is apparently well known for its craftsmanship and high quality. The rifle I looked at had a forward receiver ring that was hexed, was this the case on the rifle you handled? Out of curiousity what part of Washington are you located? It would be random and highly unlikely, but I wonder if we in fact handled the same rifle. I am in the Spokane area.
