finally finished, went to the local gun shop yesterday & finally bought a new scope for my 8mm build.
I went with a Leupold VX-2 3x9x40mm in the Matte Finish. I am normally a Vortex Optic guy but I decide to go with a Leupold on this rifle.

This rifle is built off a per WWII German K98 Mauser action. This build is all custom built, blue printed K98 Mauser action w\ Douglas Premium Match Grade Barrel chambered in 8mm Mauser. The custom maple stock is manufacture out of a shop in North Missouri. The stock is pillared & bedded for accuracy. Trigger is Timney w\2 lb pull. Rings & base is Leupold & the base was machined to fit the top of the receiver since they do not make this base for this action. I had the trigger guard & magazine floor plate engraved from a shop in Kansas. I finish all the metal work in KG Gun Kote Titanium & the bolt body, cocking indicator button, magazine release lever & the pin for the magazine release lever in KG Gun Kote Matte Black. I had some jeweling done on the bolt extractor. One beautiful build.

Now to work up a handload for this rifle.

we did have a nice time camping, but doesn't stop me from treating myself to a custom built rifle every other year. I work hard, put lots of hours down in the shop for my customers & clients. I do without the hunting trips I used to take so I can have a few nice deserving things.
