Personally I was looking at that one but what looks like the bedding job near where the barrel meets the receiver looks rather sloppy. That might have scared a few potential buyers, it did me. Hopefully it's just the picture and you have indeed bought a nice one that shoots lights out.:thumbsup:

A lot of CG63s had a replacement barrel put on once or twice as mine did. I've seen them with that type of heavy barrel (CG80?) before.

As an owner of a number of CG-xx rifles, I can tell you that that bedding job looks just fine. So an 'imperfectly clean' bedding 'line' on the CGxx rig should not scare anyone. I thought the same thing too, at first, but then once I got several others and more of em looked like it I realized that it was NOT a slop job. Especially on the 'direct from Sweden' rigs which had no 'bubba' contact in the States...

Rifle above, If I had the money I would of been bidding on it myself. I think its a great deal and congratulations.

Interesting, if you say so, you've been around these things far more than I and I've sure learned a lot from your posts. I sure it will be a fine example and very accurate but to me it just looks sloppy for Swedish work. I'm first generation with family from Germany and Sweden and we are kind of perfectionists, maybe to a fault. That's what influenced my decision not to bid. I see that it didn't garner a whole lot of interest even with it being highlighted here at the forum for all to see. I have seen CG63s go for quite a bit more on GB.

I never said it had met up with bubba.

I hope that Gunsisme has found a jewel in the rough. :thumbsup:
I thought the same thing at first (sloppy for Swedish work), but was proven otherwise. I do not think that much attention was given to the 'perfect lines' compared to a perfect bedding job.
I would love to see pictures of it once it arrives and is disassembled. It almost makes me wonder if it was a CG-63 with a lighter barrel and then a barrel got replaced, yet owner opted for the previous stock (with partial re-bedding on the action/barrel end), trigger... Again, I would hope to see detailed pictures of it once its in a new owners hands.
One way or another, I own several 'bedding jobs' as this :) and they all shoot 'dreamy'. And oh yeah, they (bedding jobs) come in different colors too :) - seriously.
