Hi everyone I would like to start out by sayin I'm new here to the forum. I joined up in because I have a gun that is puzzling to me and to hopefully learn more about other things as well.
Well on to the puzzling gun I picked up a interarms mark x here is the puzzling part it's chambered in 458x2" American. I had it verified by a gunsmith that that was the right round he also told me that it was not rechambered to that round. Now I have been through every gun book I can get my hands on and from what I have read and seen interarms never chambered a gun in 458 American. All the 458s were chambered in winmag or Lott.
My question is does anyone know more about the interarms co and if they chambered a few guns in American. Do I have some rare or one of a kind gun or have I just over looked something.
I'm hoping someone here can help since I see no way of contacting a company that's been out of business.
Ok here are the photos ignore the looks I'm still working on fitting it into the weathby stock. Also I took it to a few gunsmiths and each one said the barrel did not look to be changed out and I had a chamber casting done to be sure it was a 458 and not a 45-70
That is a large ring Mauser, they also used Remington 598's, but that is pure large ring Mauser. Boyds makes great stocks and has a few to fit your rifle. This is Nutmeg.
The bottom of the receiver should be flat w/ a large recoil lug in front.
Mine dropped right in w/ little fitting. http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/CLA-MAUSER-LR-1-BC-NL-UF-p/503-012.htm
