Default What's your thoughts

I am interested in feedback concerning Austin and Halleck ML rifles. I know they are out of business but I have always thought thet were a quality product. They have 26" barrels and #11 cap so I would want to convert if possible. I'm considering a purchase soon and would appreciate opinions. Do you know if 209 conversions are available or not?

What if it's not about CVA you'll got nothing to say? Somebody has to have some knowledge on these rifles.

Sorry Hm. I don't have anything to offer all I can recall is they were good quality available and I don't even know if there's a 209 conversion available.

Thanks BB. FG at least they put quality tiger maple on their stocks. I'm just a wood kind of guy. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder especially in guns. I suspose that's another reason I like the older TC rifles they had nice wood on them. Anyway if I can get the A&H for a good price I'll add it to the collection just because.

unlike that other maker that mostly put cheap hardwoods, a few cheap walnut, or plastic stocks on their rifles. Don't get me wrong the A&H has some of the best wood for a production rifle of them all, running close to standard Hatfields. While good wood won't make then more accurate is does look better and in my most humble opinion makes them more valueable for resale down the road. Also, generally makes them a tad bit heavier. Nothing makes a rifle stand out from the standard crowd than high quality wood with lots of grain and figure. Quality wood separates each rifle and makes it a one of the kind piece as no two can be exactly alike. To me that makes wood the more desirable product. Yes I do have plastics, laminates but the one to compare to is the handmade Hawken with the tiger stripe maple not the black stocked one. Each has a purpose but for pure love of guns quality wood stocks make the difference.
