Maybe time to list my 6.5x55 Stainless Featherweight


Never seen a 6.5x55 SS. Is that from the second run of stainless FWTs ? The ones with the black recoil pad.

Yes.
The other uncommon one from that run is the 7/08.


As AK rightly points out, black pad indeed.

The 7-08 is even more scarce, I can only recall ever having seen one stainless featherweight in that caliber.

Friend of mine has an early classic SS in 243. Are they very common?? Was thinking about buying it from him if price is right.

Had a friend tell me Gun Broker will be sending out 10-99s at the end of the year. Seems about right after GB and Uncle Sam get their cut.

I would like to see confirmation of this. So far, they haven’t asked for a ss or tax ID as eBay/PayPal have. That would be a huge deal IMHO.

Could be just a rumor my friend was spreading. I have made a few purchases with GB, I’ve never sold on their site. If it’s true, agreed it would change things big time.

I've been trying to land a short action 243 or 308 Classic featherweight for about a decade, the prices have gotten so extreme I doubt it's in the cards anymore. I ran some WTB's on here for years without a nibble. Even the FN's aren't in stock these days, but eventually I may pick one up - the reviews sound decent outside of the reworked trigger.

I found my .308 on proxibid about a year ago. Paid $850 but I was looking for very specific SS and 5 digit serial number. Problem is once people have them they don’t want to give them up. Keep looking you’ll find one.

Proxibid has several late production model new haven guns. You never know how these will go I set in on several auctions virtually and there are some in person also. Pretty cool process and interesting.

That "free" safari doesn't sound like a canned hunt at all lol.

If dealers would just get a shipment or two of Portugal Supergrades I'd probably pick one up to try out.

Here's one for you.

Did anyone else watch this auction. Lots of late production New Haven stainless/blued featherweights NIB. The 7mm-08 went for 1350 plus a 20% buyers premium. I was looking for a blued 5-6 digit so passed. There was 1-2 older used classics that sold at. What seemed like reasonable prices.

Yes, I watched it. Many stainless featherweights sold for a grand or under (including some short actions) but once you add the buyer's premium they got spendy. There were plenty that got a higher price as well like that 7mm-08 and a pair of stainless featherweights in 6.5x55.

Around my LGS they call it a buyers "penalty" instead of premium. Last one I checked into it was 23%. Insane.

Model 70 SS .243 5 digit 70XXX with a factory wood stock and leupold scope for $1000. Would have liked t o pay less but you don’t see them everyday. I will try to post some pics tomorrow.

I had a passing thought I might flip it but once I have spent some time with it I will not be able to let it go. This is becoming a sickness. My first classic stainless with wood stock feels amazing.
