1) Other commitments
2) Twist rate (OP stated in a PM this is date stamped ‘98, making this a 1:12, whereas I’d jump at a 1:9)
3) Being a ‘98, it also has the older bolt handle that requires much higher rings. I believe the newer handle is available for purchase from CZ, but that’s an additional cost.
4) I’m vain and don’t like the vented recoil pad on the older models, haha.
If I had money coming out my ears,I would have bought it ASAP. The bolt handle and recoil pad are easily swapped w/ some time/money, and a 1:12 is still great for varmint use. Since I can’t justify owning two (a 1:12 and a 1:9), I’m saving up and waiting for a 1:9 that will cover both bases.
If the items above don’t affect you and you want a gorgeous, sweet handling mini-Mauser action, jump on this! The OP is good to go, and these are fantastic rifles that are discontinued are getting hard to find!
