My experience: Might add that some of the actions used by makers here had different bottom metal. Some of the less expensive rifles appeared with pot metal TG assembly. Also, you had outfits like Flaig's assembling rifles from these actions. Also Sako and Huskqvarna used FN actions. All these actions are usable and worthwhile if one is making up a Mauser based sporter. I have never seen one but one actions had special threads. These actions had square threads so rifles could be made up using surplus Springfield barrels common at the time-as the story goes. You should be able to find Belgian Proofs. There were knock-offs from Spain.
