I have a Parker Hale 1200 Series Super Mauser Sporter 308 Norma Mag rifle. I have shot pronghorn, mule deer and elk with the rifle. It came from Birmingham, England and imported by Jana International Co. Denver Colo. I have not had any problems with it. I also had a 25-06 Parker-Hale rifle, I sold it ,big error..It would group five rounds under one inch at 100 yards. I have not seen one for sale since the mid 60s.
