Bought this out of an estate. Gunsmithing done by Colorado gunsmith Truman Wilson (barrel and glass bedding). Not sure what caliber it started out as. 24" stainless barrel with a 'textured finish' that doesn't show scratches. Threaded 5/8ths-24 at muzzle. I'd call it a medium weight barrel. B prefix serial number. Classic stock shows some wear/dings particularly on the toe area of the buttstock. There is a significant scratch on the left side below the action (see pic). Unknown round count but I've shot it 180 times (per my reloading notes) minus whatever loaded ammo I still have on hand. Brass and reloading dies available. Cabela/Meopta 4.5-14 scope and Tally mounts available at extra cost.

$975 shipped CUSA to your FFL that accepts from an individual with ID enclosed in box. Add $40 if we have to go through an FFL. Tally Mounts and the scope $275 with purchase of the rifle.

Truman used to work for/with Dan Dowling before striking out on his own.

The barrel finish is/was Dan's signature "swizzle" finish.

Truman knows his way around a lathe, no worries on the quality of his work.

I'm sure this rifle shoots really well, but it really isn't a "classic" any longer. GLWS, for a nice rifle.

Same thing I was thinking. Semi custom at best. Far from a factory Rem700 Classic.


All the best things in life, live on the other side off fear.

The true eye sees not the despair of its victims, only the elegance of equilibrium. It's a demonstration of superior judgment.

I agree (that it's not an original 'Classic' anymore other than an originally classic model stock). It shoots very well.

Price reduced to $925 CUSA to an FFL that accepts from an individual

It is indeed a nice deer rifle. Here's a pic of the deer I shot in Texas last December (115 gr Nosler BT at 275 yards. DRT). Am selling as a 70 year old I'm paring down on my hunting rifles. And my hunting son is left-handed

Nice rifle. Sweet caliber for varmints and whitetails

Good for you Torqued - that's a real nice piece of walnut on that rifle. It would clean up to be stunning.
