...In my opinion its the finest bolt action military rifle ever made. Ergonomic were perfect and silky smooth action.
That looks sweet! I bought one very much like it in the late '80s, when they were cheap (@ $100, IIRC). A decade or so later, I scored a Bubba-ed No. 5 Jungle Carbine at a garage sale for $50. Sadly, the rear sight ears had been removed or I'd have restored it by now, so I went a different way and put a sporter-type stock on it. (I'll have to find a picture of that.)
