Thank you manitou. I had to look back and see which one that was. I didn't get it as it had been sold. I told the seller if the buyer returned it I'd like a chance at it. Evidently the buyer liked it.....and I can't imagine why.Sharps: Some day (hopefully in the long distant future) you are going to make your heirs very happy... or a gun museum. You have quite the collection of really cool firearms.
I did pick up a Husqvarna 1640 in 6.5 Swede recently. Matter of fact I'll hunt with it today. Not nearly so interesting as the Telch but, I have been laying in ambush for a Husky in 6.5 Swede for a few years. Turns out it's a shooter as well! 'Course, the three Husky's I have are all shooters so I shouldn't be surprised.
Edit: Hmmm.. I looked at that GI listing and usually they say "this item has been sold." It doesn't say that about the Telch. I sent the seller a message to see if it has been returned. Curious about this one.
