Were they a bit like Herters? Saw a 7.9 MAUSER custom BA, with a ribbed barrel, Buehler Mounts, side safety (FN?) in a custom cheek piecestock, with a Wundhammer pg swell- Pachmayr red pad-anybody familiar with this brand?? RWTF

Nah, I think a bit more upper rung there Francis. They imported the likes of Ludwig Borovnik, who was most proud of his Slovenia heritage. So proud that he only employed Slovenian mechanics so that Slovenian families could feed themselves and asked Slovenian hunters to purchase from him exclusively. He and his family were jailed, expelled, ostracized, etc by the Germans during the Hitler period and just managed to survive the period, when Germans / Austrians plundered his shop & wares. But in the end he managed to weather the storm and came out on top.

Cheers,

Looks a bit like the M98 with side safety (FN and Sako style) with the Buehler rings and mounts in 8mm Mauser that I saw recently at a area gun shop.. RWTF

Nice rifle. That is a cut or two above the typical Flaig's job. I did a couple of those Siamese Mausers years ago. One a 45-70, the other a .348 Win necked up to .375 and blown out to Ackley improved. Neither are nearly as nice as the one pictured.
