    Default Early stages of my 9.3x62

    Basically a 20" tube on a BRNO mauser action. went with the 2 stage winchester style safety and a bold trigger. Just waiting on the extractor/collar and I also have a fajen synthetic stock coming. Gonna throw a set of irons on it and should make a real decent hiking/bear gun. After I get the parts I'm gonna turn it in for feeding/headspacing and probably go with a teflon coating. Still up in the air on the finish.

    Default Nice!

    I really like the 9.3X62 mm Mauser cartridge as it has been called the .30-06 of Africa as a cartridge that can do most anything if it has to. Barnes Triple Shock makes these bullets in 9.3mm.

    Wink Add a double trigger?

    I finished a Mauser project and later found a guy that builds double triggers.

    I had a bold optima already installed, but once I seen the double trigger I just had to have it! reevesr@pld.com is his email. I found him on ebay. He does great work and fast.

    A double trigger on a 9.3x62 just seems right...

    just an FYI

    Default Why two?

    WhateverI8,

    Why two triggers?

    He's only got one barrel on the 9.3x62, so what's the point of a double?

    8x57, the double trigger is a great set-up for hunting in my opinion. Pull the first trigger and it takes up all the creep and other crap found on triggers and barely touch the 2nd and ...boom


    My wife has one on her muzzleloader and its great.

    I've seen them available and I would love to have one but not on this rifle. This is for hiking/bears. I'm probably gonna thrash the heck out of this rifle, not gona waste the money on it. Now if it was for strictly hunting purposes, I would seriously consider it.

    I have a soft spot for the 9.3x62. I have an oberndorrf, husquvarna, and cz (not the 550). I would be very cautious with the double trigger. They have to be CAREFULLY set up by a real professional. I have seen these discharge accidentally. Not a pretty thing.

    Blink,

    That is a nice looking rifle, can't wait to see it once its complete. Thats the same length barrel my Interarms 30-06 has. I love how easy it is to bring in to a shooting position and carry through the brush.
