30-06 bolt shooter?

These will pound you a bit. Still a lot of fun.

1917 Enfield. I borrowed one of those from my landlord in college and used it to kill my first deer.

Certainly not the most graceful rifle out there, but pretty cool regardless. I'd like to pick up a Pattern 14 Enfield (basically the same as the Model 1917, but in .303 British) at some point.

This is one of my favorite 30-06 shooters.

It is a German K98 that was rebuilt by the Norwegians
post WWII and re-barreled and chambered for 30-06.

You can see where they milled out a little area on the
receiver to allow extra room for feeding the longer
30-06 rounds into the magazine with a stripper clip.

I had been getting A3s and 17's at one time for under 400, maybe 350 even. I guess those days are over so now I just dont' think I can lay down the green for replacements. But I did think the 17 was harder on my shoulder than the SPFLD. Odd, as I think the 17 weighs more.

Thanks.
Got it with an original sling and bayonet a few years ago for $425. One of my better finds.

No it's not some cut up 03 but the real deal.



Wow Calfed did someone try and take the front sight of that SC with a hammer?

I wonder about that myself, MJ. Such are the risks of buying guns on-line.

Luckily, doesn't seem to have effected the shootability of it.

Wadda mean, "These will pound you a bit."??
You must wear a dress to the range.
30/06 in not a heavy recoil cartridge. Try a .416 Remington
Nice Guns though.

I agree, the first rifle I built is a 416 Rigby on the 1917 Enfield action. It does kick a tad be more then the standard '06.

Maybe you don't shoot enough. Any range day is worth 300 rounds +.
