Yep, absolutely lovely set of rifles.

As I've probably said before I've got a mint .22 Original 45, but admit to preferring the stock on the RWS 45 (same mechanicals, different wood) but I've yet to see a mint one of those for sale. Saying that, see EDIT link below!!

Maybe it was because not many were sold, what with it being a rifle 'based' on something else?


EDIT.......

I think the RWS only had a short run on the brand.
I had the RWS 45 new in 1984 i think it was after JIm Tylers article in S.A.R.The stock is an improvement over the Original 45 more inline with the Original 35s.

It's seeing Jim Tyler's RWS 45 in SAR that's the reason for wanting one. ;)

Yep, the RWS stock is much improved over the Original version IMHO.....proper scope level cheekpiece, deeper forend, and pistol grip checkering.
