    Scout Rifle you say? Israeli Mauser in 7.62x51, 16 barrel. Redfield receiver sight, XS scope mount, 2x pistol scope, Choate stock, Timney trigger, butter knife bolt handle. It started as a Century Arms import from Guatemala around 30 years ago. The stock was rotten, the barrel was bulged at 17, missing parts and looking like it had been buried in the jungle, which it likely was.

    Hard to beat a 98 for serious bolt guns. Who did the work? How does the scout mount attach?

    Local gunsmith in Keizer Oregon for the scope mount which slides over the barrel where the old rear sight was and a spacer ring was added under the front of the mount. I believe it’s held in place with Acuglass or something similar. The barrel and bolt work was done some 30 odd years an ago by an old gunsmith who retired shortly after finishing. This was a work in progress for 30 years, sold and bought back twice to one friend and the estate of another.
