I was at my local gun store and he had a Teknys there from what I understand is that right now it is just over in the European market. He special ordered it for a guy who has not picked it up, so now he is selling it. I shouldered it and totally love it. It is light at 6.6lbs and really really pretty. The wood is gorgous and the nickeled reciever is looks great with the light wood. Has any one shot this gun? I know it is basically the AL391 Urika but are there any real differences? I was looking for a new hunting gun and this is nicer than what I was looking for but I just can't stop thinking about it.Here is a link with some great pics of the gun. This is priced at $1059.00 used the one I am looking at is $849 new.www.collectorsfirearms.com/s619.htm They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. -Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759.

The wood on those guns that I have seen in pics are all outstanding, how does the one in hand compare?

It appears the wood grain is not all that it appears to be. It looks like that new proccess where a film is used to get the affect, same as the camo stocks are done. I've seen the Onyx model with the proccess, looks great!!

looked at one today. The "wood" you see is not really wood but a picture of one of their select wood samples that has been overlayed onto a junk hardwood core. It is called x-tra wood. You can tell the "Xtra wood" from real wood by a trademark on the grip cap area.
