They are great rifles and if the Internet is correct,they were the most expensive military rifle/carbines to make in their day. Finding a rifle with a nice shootable bore is hard these days. The carbines always seem to be in much better condition than the rifles.

Great collection. I too like your sported version best. Saw a long rifle type at last month's gun show. It was obviously not in the 6.5 caliber any more. Looked to be 7mm. Folks had it at the table next to us and will try to sell it online.
I was R.L.E.V.M. on our old forum.
