Our SWAT team had Colt Saurers for a short time. They hated them.

My neighbor has a Colt Sauer, 25-06.  Like new, I have handled it, the bolt is

so smooth, just like silk.  The wood on those was very well selected. 

Eye candy.

I don't care what those SWAT people think....they probably don't like Winchester 94s, either....

No. It was a dressed up Model 721 with a 3 position safety and a hinged floorplate and checkered walnut. 

Then they quit and started the Model 700 with a two-position safety and pressed on checkering....but they improved it over the years....

Speaking of P17/P14 Scrummy. Are you able to own any of the military SMLE rifles?

Hi BF,

Yes we can have bolt actions on a firearms certificate. We don’t control “military style” features with legislation. Our issue comes if semi-auto centre fire.

Scrummy

Okay, and thanks. I was just wondering; the SMLE and P14/P17 are such fine bolt action battle rifles.

 Wow, this ballooned to 17 pages.  I haven't checked in awhile, and didn't go through all 17 pages, but do have a minor contribution.

Over the holidays, I went to a range with my brother-in-law and his recently acquired Kel Tec PMR-30.  I expected the worst, but was actually pleasantly surprised.  It was fun to shoot, reasonably accurate, and ran smoothly.  I liked it so much I might need to get one and smooth out a few rough edges.

I generally avoid Kel Tec's wares, but might need to reconsider that.

If I had more time to shoot I would love a P17

I know where there is a 1949 Winchester Model 94 for sale.....in pretty decent shape....in 25/35 !!!!  

But they want $1250 for it!!  Mechanically it's fine....but it could use some TLC...
