Love seeing rifles that someones restored properly, you can really see the time and effort thats gone in to them and a well done pice of woodwork makes the thing damm well stand out from the crowd too.

 

Keep us up to date and informed on any additional restoration projects, they make great reading.

Hi 223

How cheap was it ? I have seen a hw 97 k in the same condition as yours before you waved you magic wand. This one is £130. Is it worth it?
