Gday

It’s a rifle I have been waiting many years for and thought I would get a post up so the internet has some photos available.

I have searched for many hours and the info is next to none .
If anyone has info please share to create a little data base for this bit of Australian history .


Details :

Also has a cone 223 bolt .
Triple locking rear lugs
Maston stock I believe
Davies single stage trigger

This one has a few barrels

6.5x47 Lapua

Anyway enjoy and please get any pics of your Neisen rifles up

No not as yet but will be sure to post it when it arrives .

Shot the rifle on the weekend and it worked well .
Trigger is very average but will get a replacement 10oz from me Davies .

Rear lugs handled hot 6.5x47 loads with ease and did not make the brass grow .

Pretty happy so far

I am still awaiting a stock for mine - the barrel has been chambered in 6mm dasher - looking forward to getting it finished.

Davies triggers is shutting shop and becoming more of a hobby business .
If your trigger is like mine it might be time to think about a replacement sooner rather than later .

Had a hassle with mine with scope mounts or a bendy barrel
Was hard up on the end of my windage turret for 100m zero

I got it close enough to fire a 10 shot group and pack it up for next time .

Fun never ends .....

Mine has a two stage trigger, but will get it checked out.

I am using a Savage "round top" 20 MOA Ken Farrel base bedded to match the top of the action, so hopefully will negate that issue :)
