Hope it shoots to your satisfaction, very nice looking gun.
Friend has two "mannlicher" stocked M98s, both customs built in Germany while he spent years there in the USAF. IIRC, they're both 20" barrels? Beautiful rifles.
He says he has no accuracy probs, because the gunsmith had some proprietary "trick" to alleviate the usual issues with that type of stock and wandering zero.
Almost bought a used Ruger #1 like that years ago and probably would have, had it not been in 30-06. I recollect that it also had a fairly short barrel.
Only "Interarms" rifle I've ever owned, was a pencil barreled 30-06 marked H&R, but was the same Zastava M98 style action. Put a Jaeger adjustable, side safety trigger in it. Shot well, but was so light, it kicked like a mule. Eventually got shed of it.
