New type of rifle for me...

Introducing you to my new to me 300 Meter International Free Style Centerfire Rifle: Schultz & Larsen M-62 single shot .308 with Parker-Hale sights. Waiting for me to pick it up next week - a Schultz & Larsen Model 61; basically the same gun as the Model 62 except chambered in .22 LR.

The rear sight assembly, marked PH 62, has a screwed in adjustable eye piece; it has an adjustable iris and 6 different lenses including two grey shaded lenses, and yellow, green, clear, and a no lens aperture.

The only missing piece of kit is a rear butt plate or hook.

It's pretty neat what an aperture can do for your vision.

Looks pretty slick.

It makes you wonder how well you can do with irons as opposed to good glass. I am guessing that with good eyes at reasonable ranges you can do pretty well if you know your rifle.

Can you explain the trigger set up to us? It looks like some kind of set trigger set up, but not like anything that I am familiar with.

It is a set trigger; to set the trigger push the front trigger forward until it "clicks" then just breath on the rear trigger! Trigger pull on the trigger when set is somewhere between 1 and 2 ounces!

I figured that it was something like that

One or two ounces, yikes! Hopefully the gun is not overly primer sensitive. The few guns that I have played with that have those hair trigger set ups. About half of them were really primer sensitive. As in only working for a very specific type of benchrest primer.

Looks awesome. Not many 300 meter rifles left in 308. Most are 6BR or 6.5x47 these days.

I was sitting around the Olympic Training Canter talking with Lones Wigger after a training session and he was telling me about him shooting a 30-06 in the 1972 Munich Olympics. He had just returned from Vietnam running the Sniper School there. I miss that man.

For those that dont know it, 300 Meter International matches involve 120 shots over a max of 3 hours. You shoot 40 shots prone, 40 shots kneeling and 40 shots standing. The 10 ring of the target is 10cm or about 4 inches. Tough shooting.

Thanks Tom - not a lot of the younger crowd know the name Lones Wigger.

What I need to find are a butt plate and a butt hook...

That's an impressive looking gun.

I'm not much of a rifle shooter (beyond 50 yds), so I am wondering if you need to level the gun side to side for 300 yd shooting? Or if in competition, you are allowed to level it?

Also, how close can you get to the sighting aperture? Is the recoil really short on that gun?

That's a name I haven't heard in a long time. His daughter was doing some fine shooting for awhile there as well.

Beautiful, purposeful rifle there. Love the bluing on the closeups. Some excellent craftsmanship in that rifle.
