[Linked Image]Without getting into too many gory details...

I have a pretty high-dollar Shiloh Creedmoor Silhouette. Pretty well optioned out, with exhibition wood and Kelley Soule mid-range sights.

My wife and I are retiring this year and getting bids on the retirement home we plan to build on our land in the Ozarks.

No big surprise...we are wishing we had built 3 years ago...everything is through the roof and delays ($$) are rampant.

So we are looking at ways to generate additional cash to help with the build.

I don't want to be without a 45-70...and could sell this rifle outright and then find a base Shiloh, or a Ruger No 1, or a Miroku 1886. Or I could find someone looking to trade into a top end Shiloh.

I thought I would post this feeler here vs classifieds, to target the right audience.

FYI - I went to Shiloh's website and built this rifle....$5,304 and about a 2.5 year wait.

And this is without sights.

One should never sell a Shiloh. When I die, I'm taking it with me.

Here is the build:

Options are:

Exhibition wood

Checkering

AAA wood finish

Pack Harden action finish (it is their upgraded color case harden)

Polished matte finish on barrel

Steel buttplate

Brass eschutcheons


The Kelley Soule sight were right at $450 from Buffalo Arms Corp and the Lee Shaver front sight with spirit level was about $115. The rifle had no sights when I purchased it.

I can only imagine what these will be worth when the current owners manage to sell the business and no more "B" prefix Shiloh's will be made.

Wish I could justify hanging onto it through this transition period...but I am struggling with that.

You might want to think about this for a minute, the Big Piney Sportsmans club 3 miles east of Houston on Hiway B holds silhoutte and long range gong matches fairly regularly...


the most expensive bullet there is isn't worth a plug nickel if it don't go where its supposed to.

I have a semi fancy standard bbl shiloh in 45-70 I'd be willing to let go so I can upgrade. This is precisely the Shiloh I've wanted for some time now. The one I have was a prize for a shooting match years ago. Factory Letter from Shiloh proving it. I have MVA sights on mine and would prefer to keep those if you want to keep your Kelley sights.
