    I've had this rifle for two years and its given me much enjoyment (and due to my poor skills frustration). I've broken it down for its first extensive cleaning and a pure tung oil bath. Upon reassembly I decided to add some bling parts I have picked up recently. This rifle is Gungnir.

    I did have a USMC front sight cover on this rifle but I felt these parts are more appropriate to match with the WL3 polished bolt with reverse safety that the rifle came with

    Its not a NM match but as close as I can get on my budget.

    Pet name. I like it that much it has to have a name.

    Gungnir - Odins Spear reported to never miss its target (of course I never threw Odins spear otherwise that legend would have been broken)

    My 1.4 03A1 - Nothung - The sword Siegfried uses to slay the dragon Fafnir (unfortunately you cant hunt dragons with 30-06 in MA)

    My Garand - Mjolinar - Thors Hammer (and it is a hammer)

    I never played dungeons and dragons I just name my favorite rifles like I do.

    Are some of these photobucket pictures showing up as blank for your readers? Did I screw something up on the post? They were there earlier.

    What is minimum bore diameter for Dragons? Am I going to be okay with .416 Taylor or is it going to be a .500 Jeffery kind of day?

    In MA? Dragons are protected and you cant own anything larger than .177 caliber.
