I told myself I needed some new toys, so I got out the CC and called Simpson.
First is a 1935 proofed Fegers drilling in 16 and 8X57IR with Dural receiver and Dural 4X Hensoldt. It's un-molested and shoots under an inch with a cool barrel.
The other combo is a Valmet 300 series BBF in 12/222Rem. I shot sub-MOA groups with it while sighting it in. I have one like it in 22 Svg HP, a 2400 Savage/Valmet in 12/308, and one in stacked 12ga, both 26" IC/Mod and 28" M/F. The Savage 2400 has a SST; the others are DT, and all barrel sets fit all receivers.

I guess I am an addict. This was prior to my latest additions. I added a Sauer drilling proofed 1962 16 & 7x57R, '64 proofed Fortuna 16-7X57R drilling, and a Kreighoff Trumpf Dural drilling 16 & 7X65R since this photo, but I sold a couple in the photo.
I'm a medium bore whore and some of my guns are a close fit. My Valmet set is 12/12 and 9.3/9.3. I would like a 308/12 but haven't looked. The Euro guns are attractive to me but I will have to move some others that I'm unwilling to set free at the moment. Nice guns Luv2. If you are to be in Misery let me know. Be Well, Packy.
Oh yes. I'm still looking for a scope mount. I wanted to put one on the 12/12 set for turkey hunting but I was late in looking. Anyone wish to sell a Valmet 512 scope mount? 30MM OR 1 inch will work fine. It would become my turkey sniper gun for Misery. Maybe some one will come up with one. Enjoy your toys and Be Well, Packy
Isn't that QD base on the Valmet tapered? I hadn't thought of airgun bases due to that. Will PM you one of these days to talk about that. Don't want to clog up this thread with that stuff. Be Well, Packy.
Mine is the 412/512 series. I'm confused now. The rifle set has a tapered base and I think the shotty does too. Will look. The manual was a 412 I think. It may have been a put together set but it all fits well. The 9.3 set had to be fitted before he could send it. Be Well, Rustyzipper.
Pictures? Maybe my son and/or grandson could get it done. Didn't think about the Sako rings working. The rings and scope all assembled would act as one detachable unit. Thanks for the thought, Be Well, Packy
