    A friend of mine has this rifle and is wanting 350 with the scope. Says it is chambered in 44 sp, mag, russian, 445 super. Are they good rifles. I think he said it is austrian made?

    Even with the poor pics I’d buy it! I’ve never heard of it but I like “weird and different”! For $350? Easy choice. Buy it.

    I would buy it like Josh above like the weird, It appears it is a base of a case inlet-ed into stock.

    The bolt pulls straight back, no lift. It is pretty.

    $350? Don't see the downside myself. Most of my mistakes cost a lot more than that

    I would buy it if I was you, it looks nice from the pics . Just a guess.but if they went through the effort to build it like shown it could be a gem.

    Looks like a M95 to me .

    It could be any of the straight pull military rifles of the past . I'd be concerned about feeding and limit its pressure . 44 mag is getting up past its original chambering pressure limits . Not as strong as a 98 Mauser so anything above 45,000 psi is not recommended. It's gas venting is also not very good .

    I was worried about the straight bolt pull and pressures myself. He is moving to florida and no longer needs a indiana deer rifle so he is willing to give me a "good deal" but i have a 243 if i ever decide to go deer hunting again.

    It is pretty and someone put real work into it.

    Save the money for your .22 RF project. Unless you think you can flip it and make some money. Stay the course! :D:D:p

    Paul May be right? You shouldn’t listen to me. I haven’t bought a gun in 6 months. I may be going thru withdrawal. I need to go to a meeting.:D

    You won't really know if you "need"it until it's to late. Better to have and not need than need and not have.

    Josh no , don't fall off the wagon , you were doing so good . Buy the slingshot in the first photo , upper right corner . It won't handle 44 mag loads for long . At least not safely !

    Josh I have a Turk rifle, they are a large ring action with small ring threads. I want to put a Swede barrel into my Turk action ( they will just screw together and make a 98 action 6.5x55) and make a Tweed. I can't get him to find me just a Swede barrel.

    Its a sporterized German or Austrian military rifle. Somebody took the action and built a rifle. As said before, careful of pressure. As it sits, you either like it as is or you'll have too large of a bill to make it worth it to convert it to a different caliber. Originally these were all in 7 or 8 mm military cartridges. Here's a list of all strait pulls you can compare too:
