    In the late 70 's I sent P.O Ackley a Paul Jaeger custom '98 mauser with a shot out barrel which I had bought
    for very little . I had wanted him to rebore it , in part to save the Jaeger markings on the barrel and have a
    famous gunsmith work his magic ,best of both . In an unexplained screw up he removed my Jaeger barrel and
    replaced it with a new one marked P.O Ackley ,6 mm rem.[he did get the caliber request right ] So now I have
    what I know to be a custom Paul Jaeger rifle with beautiful stock work ,double set triggers but no markings
    to show he made it . But it DOES have P.O. Ackley on the barrel. Mr Ackley felt bad about the screw up and
    would not accept any payment , which was a nice gesture . Rifle shoots fantastic ,any thoughts on value ?

    How does it shoot? I don't know if your plans or to keep it or move it along. If you plan on selling or trading it as a nice shooter, please send me a pm. Thanks
