Wondering why none of these rifles are available?

Demand > supply

With possible exception of the Montana, the supply is not increasing and won't be going up soon. People are often reluctant to sell a rifle that would be difficult to replace down the road.

The only reason I haven’t sold my Fieldcraft or Montana. I’ve never owned a ULA or NULA. I really like the other two but the prices these things go for are crazy…I thought hard. Glad I decided to keep

I sent a Forbes 20B to Melvin a few years back and got it "Melvinized". I remember reading about them in probably the mid 80's and always wanted one and in 284 Win of course. While mine ain't a Nula it is close enough. It sure shoots like a Nula.

Someone almost talked ne out of my 7-08 18" fieldcraft last year. Their $3500 offer had me seriously looking at anti defiance actions, bruxism barrels etc. But the fieldcraft shoots extremely well and has a 3" magbox. It would be a roll of the dice replacing it.

Much as I like it, $3500 would get mine. I liked the Alpine I donated to the grandkids nearly as well, and my tricked-out Mini is right in there too.

OTOH, the current market price on them doesn’t even make me twitch. I expect one of my sons will get it in time.

Fieldcraft are a POS. List them immediately for sale

I believe a Salvage Model 10 has a 3 inch mag box.

A 3" box does not a Fieldcraft make!

When I bought my Fieldcraft, I had to wait 10 days before I could pick it up. On the day I picked it up, a guy came up to me and said, I'll give you $500.00 more than you paid for the rifle. I just smiled and said, it's not for sale.

It shoots really well.

6.5 CM. I really got it for my wife. I couldn't sell her rifle.

I'm glad I liked my Montana better when I held a FC. Saved me a bunch of money.
