Re: scope it or modify stock?
The manlicher stock is what drew me to it. I love manlicher stocked guns. I have sporterized many 6.5 swedes and all ended up great shooters, Sadly never kept one for myself, only one I have left is an all matching 96 long rifle with the threaded barrel and micrometer dial rear sight. Many over look the 6.5x55 here in the US for some reason. I agree that sight elevation is the problem BIUT I am betting Buffalochip is like muself when it comes to a high comb on a stock; too short of a neck for them to fit properly! I still wonder if lowering teh front sight might be the best option than cut the comb of that beutiful stock!!!!
