Changing of the Guard...



Log in to see fewer ads
This Brno M3 Stecher is known to some here, but likely not all, it belonged to a long time well respected member here (still with us thank God) who I am proud to call a Friend. I was given the opportunity to purchase it and gladly did so. The rifle is in a custom stock by Claude Gatewood and the bolt has been very professionally jeweled, a original stock came with it as well but it will be staying in this stock.











I'm very happy to claim ownership of this phase of its life and look forward to seeing how she shoots.

Again, very nice Gerald. Do you have any close ups of the bolt alone?

You are absolutely the LUCKIEST man I've never met. Watched your posts for years. The CZ wood lotteries alone are baffling. Don't expect any crowns once you cross those pearly gates...Pretty sure u've been paid in full.

Can't argue that, my now deceased hunting partner used to say I was born with a Golden Horseshoe up my hiney....

I know zip about BRNOs, but I know a good looking rifle when I see one.

Wow, G- thatís one FINE acquisition there!

Please send some of that luck my way, I could use it.

(To be clear, I donít want your particular brand of anatomically situated luck!)

Methinks thereís likely a bit of Karma at play here, youíre just now reaping the benefits of the many acts of kindness and protection youíve invested in the world.

Congratulations, Sir.
