Junior, my old pardner over at Castbullet, has been playing with a Turk Mauser. Playing with it means he has cut down the barrel, cut down the stock, bedded it, scoped it, and has one hell of a rifle for under $75.00. That's right. Well under a hundred US dollars and he has a new deer rifle. He bedded it with JB Weld. I've handled it, and it shoots good. Real good.
Who says this hobby has to be expensive?
