I'll get one up, it was the last military bolt action made, and went right to the reserves of Columbia as soon as they arrived, or so I'm told. Looks pretty neat

The rifles were ordered by the Columbian Navy and manufactured by Dutch Idustrie Syndikat (Madsen) in 1957-58. When the Dutch went to complete the order, the Columbians refused to take them. They were sold on the surplus market in the USA by Interarms. They were all new when sold the first time. The price was $89.95 in 1963, with matching bayonet.

Doug, Did you ever get to handle one of these? If so were they nice rifles?
