Interarms Mark X

My dad picked up an Interarms Mark X in .308 w/custom wood.

All reviews show these to be a very good action.

Anyone have any experiences?

I cant wait to get my hands on this rifle later tonight. It was custom built in 1980 by a local gun smith. This is one of his first projects while he was still a high school kid. He now run a high end shop and does some beautiful wood work on his firearms.

I'll post a pic when I get to see it.

Take a kid hunting, it's the future of our sport and the future is now!

Re: Interarms Mark X

Zastava (Yugoslavia) M98 pattern commercial actions, not bad guns.

Basically the same action used on lots of other imported Mauser 98-type rifles, before Interarms came up with the Mark X moniker.

Same action as used on the Charles Daly imports, later imported by Remington.

Good guns. Their factory offerings were heavy buggers, had enough wood in the stock to pass for a barn beam. Should be sweet with the custom stock.

Re: Interarms Mark X

I had 2 with custom stocks. Parted with 1 of them. Decent guns. Dont like the trigger though. Neither are tack drivers.

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same

Re: Interarms Mark X

Just got back from checking it out. I forgot my camera...uuggg

Beautiful piece of wood.

This guy worked the trigger, nice and crisp, guessing it goes off at about 2#'s.

Cant wait to scope it and see how she shoots.

Re: Interarms Mark X

What Denny said. They are excellent actions for the money though they can be a bit rough when new. I've had a number of them over the years and all were good rifles. Also they are a bit heavy simply because they are an honest all steel action. Not too many actions are made that way anymore.

Re: Interarms Mark X

Have one in .375 H&H. Good shooter, still not totally sure of accuracy potential, only tried one factory load so far. Mine came with a Timney (SP?) adjustable trigger in it, so no problems there. Mine also origianlly came with a beautiful thmbhole stock, but I traded that out for one of the Remington 798 laminate stocks. Who's the local smith?

Don't let our differences defeat us.

Re: Interarms Mark X

Chumley...Rod Fox is who built this gun. The guy does some incredible work for being in such a small town.

Check out his web site (that I created for him )

Paul Jaeger Custom Guns used to build rifles on the Mark X and they never spared expense when they put guns together
