First Off, Thanks for having this nice forum!! I find it help full to tell you all about myself.I am 56 years old, I have been disabled since 2007, I torn a couple disc in my lower back in 03! I made a bad mistake, since it was W.C. Injury there Doctor stated that I could do my job as long as I take 4 - 7.5 Hydrogo/apap a day.
So i worked everyday until Dec 2007 when I was taken off work, I never took oof any time for a doctor visit, allways did them after work! I took off 4--1/2 days for tests.
I am a born and raised farm boy, I have allways worked with my hands, I have tinkered on Guns since 1973, I have never claimed to be a Gunsmith or even a part of a Gun smith. Instead of laying in bed all day every day feeling sorry for myself, I force my self up and do as much playing as I can stand. Then it is lye down as long as it can take before I get up again. I have put togehter a few AR's one being a 243WSSM, a Heavy barrel 223 Target and just now finished my 6.5 Grendel AR. If you have a few tools and gauges anyone could put a AR togehter.
The other day I ran acrossed a Lilija 260 Ackley Impoved barrel with a 30 round count and a steal, so I bought it, only bad thing it is threaded for a Remington 700 action (1-16 thread) that means I will have to wait a while before I can afford a Reminton action! I know that it is been a lot words to get to the question and I apoligizes! I have allways liked the Mauser actions and since I love to do everything myself, if possible(I feel lucky if I get a fixture setup or my lathe setup before it is bed time)cold weather kills me!! Okay, I have a small ring Mauser action and I am going to try to build me some kind of Wild Cat rifle?? Why isn't the Mauser action used?? I would think there has to be a reason???? Does anyone know of a Great book on Wild Cat cartrigde's ect.
I hope that I have not been to big of pain!
Thanks for reading
