Custom Sporter made by EJ Churchill in England during the 1970s. Using a ex-military M17 action. This rifle includes leaf sights graduated between 100 and 300yards. Fully floated barrel and 1in rings on a bridge mount. 5 round internal mag. Very good condition throughout including bore. Getting decent timber stocked rifles in these bigger cals is getting harder. Suit someone looking for an old school gun that is still very practical.
