Maybe someone here can afford this beautiful custom, I certainly can't:

That thing belongs in a museum!! $190K for a starting bid? TOOOO ornate! I do like the wood though!..........Even if I had that kinda money to burn, I wouldn`t on something like that! That thing is nothing more than an ego gun!........A 416 Ruger Alaskan will shoot the same bullet, just as straight, at the same speed, kill the same game,,,,,,,,,and all for 1/190th of the price.

It should be no problem with that girlie-mon rest. I've read that those things are hard on scopes with heavy kickers.

if i had that kind of money to burn i would buy a piece of wood like that and i would probably spring for the fancy engraving and inlaying etc. but i would want it on either a m700 or a pre 64 m70 not the blaser 93.

i have three shot bags that i put sand in, im not sure how much they weigh but i would shoot it with an empty tray first and then see if i need to add any weight, as heavy as my gun is im looking at 32ftlbs of recoil which isnt much really. i havent had a chance to shoot it yet, im still waiting for my  custom ear plugs to arrive, they should be here by thursday. i hope to be out shooting in the next couple of weeks.

Well I guess as long as you are going to have an engraved gun that you arent going to shoot you might as well chamber it in a round that doesnt lend itself to enjoyable shooting that way it discourages use.

A few made mention to Charlton Heston and his collection of fine pieces of art.  Has anyone seen pictures of his gun collection and what he might have owned when he was alive?

pyro, what about the Zeiss Conquest 1.8-5.5X38?  It's got 4" of eye relief and its plenty long to fit that action!  Just talked my buddy into getting one for his Enfield 300Win Mag.  Will be mounting it up soon in a set of Weaver bases and Warne LOW rings!  It looks to me to have the same reticle as the 3-9X40 - which is very nice in low light!  It's kind of heavy, but that's okay for your rig.  Little more weight might be a good thing on a .375H&H!!!!
And, its only $299 @ SWFA!
