My wife is not going to be very happy with me...I just bought a friend of a friend's .416 Taylor! :hb:

I've always wanted one, and the opportunity was there, so I jumped on it. Custom built on a 60's era Mauser action, laminated stock. Can't wait to play with some loads for it...guess I got my winter night activity ahead of me now!

Don'ty worry about it, I'm sure you'll do something worse than that in the next few days. Enjoy the quiet:wink

So what you're saying is that she thinks a classic African safari rifle with a laminated stock is a sacrilege?

I agree!

Get the rope!

[B]Now you'll be ready if a zombie water buffalo comes plowing through the area! Congrats on the new toy.

I need pics!
6.) Deerminator - 10/21/2014
pics and congrats on a fine rifle:tu:
7.) Wild Bob - 10/21/2014
Thanks all, I don't have too many pictures, but I share the two that I have. My buddy is shipping it from his home in Alaska, I hope to actually have it within a week.

(I can always build another more traditional stock for it SF...and that doesn't sound like a bad idea either. There are also some other minor mods, or details that I'd like to work on to make it mine. But I kind of like laminated too...)

Good luck with it!

Keep us posted on the project. Bear rifle? Should the prairie dogs be very afraid? :wink
9.) Wild Bob - 10/21/2014
They should be very afraid... I'm going to deliver a 400 gr howitzer into their little dirt casa...LOL! Kind of like a mini bunker buster... :wink

Good looking rifle.
