what is your preferred bolt action rifle /k/? what are your reasons for your choice?posting mauser k98 because i know someone will bring it up.
My onlyest bolty boi. My favorite would be a left handed Lee-Enfield if such a thing existed, but AFAIK it doesn't.
>>41197302>posting mauser k98
>>41197302I have a k98, and I love it, but my favorite was my Lee Enfield No.5. Sold it a few years ago, but I think I’m going to buy one again next.
>>41197302I put a type 53 chinese mosin carbine into a archangel stock.
>>41197302I like the grand because it won ww2 and goes ping.
>>41197344would it destroy the value to have the rifle changed to left handed? or is it treated different than "sportifying" or whatever its called
>>41197387How did you fill out the forms as an illiterate?
>>41197387but that's not bolt action, also the united states used the Springfield during ww2 so if patriotism was your purpose you could have picked that.

The 1903a3 is the peak of bolt action perfection.>mauser god tier smoothness >god tier sights
>>411974071903 sights are dogshit unless you mean the 1903a3 which saw some limited use, they stormed guadalcanal with 1903's though.
>>41197388You'd have to machine a whole new receiver.
>>41197442got a pic?
>>41197404The gunpeople store helped at the shpw
>>41197302M1917 beats all. Mauser smoothness, great sights and 6>5>>41197388Yes, that would be bubba, and very expensive.
>>41197459not the biggest thing i've seen done to those things.
>>41197302I like the MAS 36 and Steyr 95 more than any other bolt guns.
>>41197302I think my No.4's action isn't a good example of the breed because it's slower and gritty compared to my two SMLEs, so despite the aperture sight I'm going to go with the first SMLE I bought. I love the lines of the No.1 rifles, they're elegant but tough, somehow. The action's smooth and fast, cock on close makes sense in my head despite starting shooting years ago on cock on open rifles. It's flawed but I love it.
>>41197482At that point just build a damn rifle from scratch and a criterion barrel of your choice
>>41197483I dream about having the Steyr 95 but that ammo is very hard to find for me, unless I'm just looking in the wrong places.
>>41197504It's only imported on occasion, SGammo has it at the moment. You'll need to hand load.
>>41197504scratch that im just autistic as i found it.
>>41197467Unless you mean 1903's on Guadalcanal.
03A3's if you had one you were in the rear somewhere, they didn't exisit until 1943, and by then they were shitting out M1 garands.
obligatory>Is it summer already?
>>41197302My CZ 527 in .223It’s my favorite firearm, and a joy to shoot
>>41197529of your rifle you retard
>>41198779>CZ 527Ayy, brother>in .223Ya dun goofedI got the 7.62x39 one and while it shoots nice, I find attempting to chamber the next round gets really "stiff" for lack of a better word
My Faz no4 mk2
>>41197427>Marry Stalin and pussy slavsWhat?
>>41197563I used to have one. Was pretty niffty. Traded it for a lever gun though
>>41198923Nah my nigga the .223/5.56 chambering is the enlightened man's choice. Flatter trajectory, more available ammunition in a wider variety from match to cheap steel shit, and very mild recoil. That and I don't have to buy another boresnake lol. I get what you mean though, the action can be a little stiff, though I only experience it when shooting steel case. Even when warmed up, as soon as I switch to brass it is noticeably smoother.
>>41198910>has never seen a1903 or o3a3fgt fgt fgt!
>>41197442*blocks your path*
Since prices for surplus are still ridiculous compared to what they once were...What's a good modern day Bolt Action with wood furniture that has common/affordable ammo?(I live in a free state, can just order ammo to my door)
>>41197344thisgib lefty enfield
>>41199072Zastava in 270 or 30-06 is cheap, built on a mauser receiver, and has iron sights. Good all around gun and Zastava has historically built wartime guns which is neat.If you have lots of money and handload, do a custom build on a precision rifle action, pillar bed the wood stock, and get a ranging reticle just to flex 1000 yards at the range with what looks like a fudd gun.
>>41198779I have the same gun.Ditch the scope, get the peep sight from NECG. Also buy three-round mag that fits flush. Perfect innawoods gun for the eastern U.S.
>>41199947I go back and forth with the scope, I have it off now. I thought about getting a peep sight for it, but I hear you’d have to get a new front post and drift out the stock rear sight, and honestly I don’t mind the stock irons.
Swede M-96 Mauser for milsurp. As for modern production models the Savage mk2 is fucking amazing.
>>41197442>two piece firing pinOtherwise yes. It was the direct ancestor of the Winchester Model 54, which itself developed into the legendary Model 70.
