Nothing, it came like that from the gun store. Had one previous owner who had a smith cut the threads, then he only shot it for a month and traded it in for a T3 Sporter.

What year was it built?

I'm confident saying no one will top that. I love your rifle.
I ordered it in mid 1986 shortly after i turned 18 got it in spring of 1987. Was on a 6 month backorder. I know the gunshop owner KNEW i was going to hate it and he would get a smoking deal on a bring back... he was soooooooo wrong.

There are a few out there i see em now and then but most have very few rounds through em. A lot of people bought them because of dirty harry i bought it because im an avid reader and im fascinated by turn of the century african big game hunting safaris and all that. Double rifles were and still are more moola than im willing to part with. But the model 70 african was pure american and still in the spirit of a old time big game rifle

Its pretty flat out to 200yards with full charged 350 and 300 grain loads. It starts losing steam at 450 and becomes rainbowish. Furthest ive shot it with consistant hits was 800 yards on a elk sized steel target. With 525grain loads its a 250yardish gun before it really loses steam.

Its one of the most versatile rounds there is as you can duplicate the ballistics of the older 45-70 and 45-120 or exceed that and those were long range rounds. I can and have used blackpowder in it along with saboted .308 rounds. It shoots lead rounds and with access to tungsten cored bullets for cape buffalo and rhino its something else.

I dont think there is a hunting situation you couldnt have a ready load for.

Ive toyed with the idea of reaming it out for 458lott but cant bring myself to do it. I want to trade out the vx7 for a 1-4x nightforce or equivelent.

Is it CRF? I thought it looked like it in the pic, but I'm on my phone so...

I'm into the old African cartridges as well. My buddy got me started on Mark Sullivan DVD's. The guy is insane and I question his ethics, but he has nice rifles and he can shoot. I doubt I'd have caught that Dirty Harry used a .458 if I hadn't been drooling over them already.

You probably hear this a lot but, I'll say it anyway. Nice rifle.

I have a few "favorites", but my LRB M25 is one of them.

Here's my favorite, it's a Remington 700 .308 VTR. The stock is original, the color of the stock is called Desert Recon, and it came that way from Remi. It also has a triangular barrel and an integrated muzzle brake. It's mounted with a junk broken scope until I can get a new one (I haven't shot it in over a year), and a Harris bipod.

Controlled round feed. As in the pre 64 "Mauser" type action with the claw extractor. I dig those. Not that the newer ones were bad, just like the older better.
