Duane Wiebe custom .30-06. Crafted on an FN commercial Mauser 98 action, serial 52324 wears a custom 24-inch tapered barrel (.610 muzzle diameter) with hooded ramp front sight topped by a brass-beaded blade, Williams adjustable (both windage and elevation) rear sight, Leupold quick-detach bases with medium 30mm rings and a custom shroud with a two-position paddle safety. The stock is purest Weibe, shaped from a fine English walnut blank with bold figure and traces of crossing grain. Accents include an ebony forend tip, borderless 26 lines-per-inch wrap checkering, scalloped cheek rest with shadow line, steel grip cap and a Pachmayr recoil pad. All screws are timed, the trigger pull tuned and bedding runs the full length of the barrel channel. MARKINGS: In addition to the visible caliber marking, “Wiebe” appears on the underside of the barrel. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.2 pounds and length-of-pull is 13.6 inches. CONDITION: The bore is strong and bright. Metal finish is approximately 95 percent overall, with most of the condition handicap from thinning over the bottom metal. Wood is approximately 97 percent, with a scattering of light impressions and a tiny chip at the rear corner of the bolt slot. The price is firm and layaway is available. $3,250 plus shipping.
