Found one of the 24 in, stainless 6.5s here in Wasilla at SW. Shaved 1 1/4 lb and gained 1/2 MOA over my last sheep rifle. A joy to shoot and carry, tis the best rifle purchase Ive ever made.

Oh it happens for certain, but it has yet to happen to me, except for as I just now remembered, the recall on Henry single shots for a trigger design fault. I also sent back a Turkish O/U sold by CZ to have the action adjusted. A couple of Ruger handguns had issues pretty much out of the box as well. Bolt action rifles have been remarkably trouble free, except for minor issues like bedding that were easily fixed by me.

Maybe Paul the Biker got my share of bad ones…..

He certainly has had a disproportionate share!

I was looking at he videos from the 2922 Shot show and not much interests me. Everything is a black rifle.They kind of loose their luster after you had to carry one around for better than a year. It seems bolt guns are dead in the water, even with plastic stocks. Blue and walnut rifles are history. I really don't think there is
market enough to sustain Fieldcraft, There are too many throw away rifles that shoot well. A few custom builders can handle the market. Guess I'm getting old! I love my Montanas, Fieldcraft, blue and walnut Model 70's, and 99"s.

I wasn't, but I might gladly get rid of my 280Ai and my 224V.

I love my 6.5 X 55 Fieldcraft, the most accurate rifle I've ever owned, but damn! Trouble is I've kicked myself hundreds of times after selling guns I now lust after!

If that Fieldcraft sells, it could cause a rise in people trying to cash in, this flooding the market, and dropping the price!

At least I could hope.

I had 2 Fieldcrafts, one that I bought in 270 but didnt like the fit so much so sold it. The other one I traded for work that a guy owed me, it was in 308. I really wanted a 7mm08 but thats all he had, I didnt like the stock/fit on that either. So I decided to use it as a project since I didnt have a lot of $$ in it and had a Lilja #2 stainless 24" bbl put on it and it shot very well. I took two mulies with it the first year I had it. One at 275yds and the other at 75. Still didnt like the stock at all. Sent it out for a custom lightweight stock to be installed, hopefully have it back in a month or so.

I wonder what my 18.5" 7-08 would bring? I don't think I'd sell it because it has proven 1/2 moa capable with both bullets I've tried so far. Although fir about $3000 I could build something pretty nice.
