    Can you email me or PM me about this gun. I have the exact same one and was curious on the value of it.

    Let me know if you find any more info or how we can find a value on it.

    Thanks

    Ricebranman.

    Pm on it's way..

    Thanks Josh, I "happened" on this one (yeah, lookin for and at the 1911's). I'm still waiting on the 1 piece base mount that should have been here thursday :(, got everything else ready to see what this rifle is capable of...I do have my fingers crossed. Get that done and I can adjust the trigger on it as it's got one heavy pull right now.

    JLA - Let me shoot it and see if I like it. Issue is that it is LEFT HANDED... not sure if you would want that. I left that part out....sorry.

    damn. Not really a use for a lefty, Im waaaay right handed. I suppose the action would be useful for a heavy bench gun build, lemme know either way. I might still be interested...

    I have a Savage 116 stainless in .30-06 Sprng. that I bought alone because the advertised rifle/scope combo had a crappy $50 Simmons scope on it. Had a bad experience with a similar scope on another rifle & didn't want to repeat it.:mad:

    Put a Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5-10x40mm on it & it gives me < 1/2" groups with IMR-4064 & the new Barnes 165 grain TTSX bullets.

    Too bad the combo wasn't offered with a scope in the quality range of a Bushnell Trophy......a lot of scope & easy on the wallet.

    Not right sure as to the exact $ amount, but when I got mine (like new in box) they had a price of $512 on it.
    I didnt pay that for it as I did some swapping to clean out the gun cabinet a bit.
