    I picked this up today at a gun show, 243 Mannlicher with the longer barrel. Glad I got there early, somebody else might have grabbed her up.

    Nice looking 243. Thanks for posting. Surely . . . you have to tell us . . . about the dealings with the seller. Every purchase has a story . . . right.

    Thanks Enotstehw, It was laying there on a table from one of Floridas larger dealers, Shoot Straight is there name and they are good to deal with, there stickers prices are usually negotiable.

    Hey Woodman! You've done it again! I need to come down there for gun shows...never ever find stuff like that here, ever! Nice Gun! I was just talking to Misako the other day about the Mannlicher's (carbines)being a perfect WV hunting rifle. You've got a knack for finding the cool stuff. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing Bro'! ~Bloo

    You find those longer barrels from time to time on L57's, but they are really scarce on the L579's. Congratulations!
