This rifle was stocked by someone who didn't really know what he was doing, but he had the good sense to stop before he did too much. I think it's now bedded well enough to try at the range. I've saved the pieces and shavings I cut off the stock. With allowance for the weight of a medium size paper bad they weigh about 14 pounds.

bill: your last sentence confused me. how much does the gun weigh? they generally go between 5-6.5 pds. I would love to see a picture of that gun. was there a hallmark stamped on the underside of the barrel?

Bob, I only meant to say there was a lot of extra wood, actually about half a pound. I don't think there are any other markings on the bottom side than the numbers 270 on the edge of the shank. I'll check again when I have the metal out of the wood. The rifle wasn't anything special to look at-- a WWII Mauser action with a poorly forged bolt handle and an oversize Fajen stock of plain black walnut. What made it appealing to me was that it included a mint Lyman Alaskan scope. Now I'm hoping it will shoot, too.

If bedded properly it should be an excellent shooter. It obviously wasn't one we built. the ones built by benko where stamped with his hallmark.it was hacked by a bubba.

Elmer Keith talks a bit about Johnson barrels in his book "Rifles for Large Game".

Here are some pictures of one of Dan's rifles with a really thin barrel.

rocky mtn bill/ pod,
If the "wide section about 2" long at the muzzle" is the same as on "Dans" rifle above, it looks like a muzzle brake. I looks like those brakes sold by Herter's in the 50s and 60s with typical claims of reduced recoil and increased accuracy.

Mike. Mine is a straight cylinder about the diameter of the small section on Dan's rifle. There are no holes in it. It has to be a weight of some kind.

Bill,
You have seen yours, I haven't; I yield to your superior information.
