    This is insanity. Maybe we're all upside down and we just don't know it?!? I'm going to pull my FishGods from the safe this evening and see which way she's swimming.

    They are swimming different directions, one toward the muzzle and one toward the bolt. If both are pointed the same direction, the tail would be pointed at the bolt. You get the gist.

    My 270 has the antlers both pointing toward the bolt release side.

    Upon closer inspection, I believe all of my critters are right side up. (Odd, I was only able to upload 1/2 pictures...think something may be up with the site or my computer...)

    Nice rifles Paul. I sure would like to see a couple pictures of your GA. What little wood I can see has my interest.

    The Buffalo! I forgot to mention that one. I don't have one of those either. Cool floor plates, thanks for showing.

    I looked at the one on GB that you listed. Might just be me but it looks like the stock had been refinished at sometime. Looks like the finish is to
    thick in the checkering.

    Thanks Rocky for the observation.

    So I am clear, you are referring to the Sako LR61 .264 win mag in upside-down moose horns?

    HC, not the 264 but the L57, 308.
