So are you guys of the opinion customs with the Mark X barelled actions have gone up in value? I built one (22-250) with a fiddleback "blonde" maple stock similar in looks to the top pic, contrasting wood on fore end and pistol grip, but no checkering. If I say so myself, mine turned out real nice, but my first thought after I finally finished it was I'm NEVER doing this again.
Roper, I built mine back in about 1970 and somehow "Santa Barbara" sounds famillar. At the time were they called Mark X Santa Barbara Barelled Actions? I just took a look and all I could find on mine was Zastava, Yugoslavia, Mark X, Interarms, Alexandria, Va.
Thanks for any info.
