I know they are 'way cool! I used to read Herter's catalogs from cover to cover but just about the time I got to where I could afford one of their rifles the feds passed the law prohibiting mail order sales!

You might try calling Cabella's I'm not sure if they bought Herter's out or just sell for them but they may have more info.

Most Herter's rifles were built on BSA (Birmingham Small Arms, England; no relation to the current junk from Communist China) actions. I think there were some on Spanish and Yugo Mausers. I don't know where they got barrels and stocks.

i have a herters in 243. i bought it mail order in the mid 60's. it was ordered left handed, but arrived to me for the right. very good quality on a yugo mauser action. i also had most of their loading tools which were affordable and very well built. piddler (OIIIIO)
