They have been imported for at least 40-50 years and sold under several names. They are solid dependable rifles, although not noted for exceptional accuracy. At one time you could just buy the actions and have your gunsmith build a custom for you. This was quite popular at one time. I had a 338-06 with a Brown Precision stock built off one of these actions at one time as well as a 7mm Rem Mag that I owned for a while in the early 80's.

I wouldn't be interested in one as-is. If the price is cheap enough I'd buy it to use as the basis for a semi-custom.
