That's the idea. I'm hoping to start putting a custom rifle together soon, just trying to figure out all the components.
I'd like to build a .416 Ruger on a model 70 action or 98 Mauser, color case hardened. Rust blued 24 inch shilen barrel, French walnut stock. Just to be ready for that day I get rich and famous and can afford to go to Africa.
Basically I want it to look like this, only in my price range. http://www.kimberamerica.com/rifles/specialty/caprivi-special-edition
