I have a Husqvarna 640 (1947 Belgian 98 receiver,1955 Husqvarna build in 8x57 w/ short side rail scope mount.
Well the new build is happening faster than I thought. I have the rifle, just needs some cleaning. It is dou stamped w/ one dirty bird, so the action and barrel are German occupation vintage. It is also BRNO stamped and has Czech acceptance stamps. It is a semi-kreigs model.
I have the scope and rings already on the scope. It is a 1944 Zeiss Zielvier w/ 1" sunshade, rings are low turret style, so all I need are a set of low turret bases that will be coming from Austria in about a month.
Cost so far:
Rifle: $300.00 + 36.00 shipping
Scope and rings: $1000.00
Mounting bases: $200.00 guaranteed zero.
$1776.00 Total. Call it 1800.00 w/ the shipping of the barreled action, bases and scope to Pa for mounting.
