    Default Has anyone ever heard of Bridgwater Rifles?

    I recently came across a classified add for a rifle discribed as a "Bridgwater Alpine Supreme" in 30-06. I have never heard of this make before and an internet search did not turn up much of anything. Can anyone give any input on these rifles?

    Thanks

    Here is what I found on the net:

    manufactured by The Firearms Co. Ltd. of Bridgwater, England. They have been making the Alpine Mauser-action sporting rifle since about 1965. Rifles came with a plastic-finished wood stock in 243 Winchester, 270 Winchester, 30-06 or 308 Winchester. Rifles weighed about 7.5 pounds and had a five round magazine. Barrels were 24 inches and the sights were a hooded ramped blade and an adjustable Williams ramp. The K98k actions for Alpine rifles were originally refurbished war surplus, but later they were purchased from Belgium (FN) and Spain (Santa Barbara)
