I just bought this, but another purchase makes it expendable.

$550 shipped to your FFL in CONUSA

Sorry - I am selling at a loss, so I can't go any cheaper, and I don't need any trades at this time.

Here is the original description:

This is a Remington 700 custom, built on a NEW Remington SPS action with a 21 inch Douglas XX premium, stainless number 5 contour,1 in 12 twist barrel chambered in 9.3x62 Mauser caliber. It has a hinged floor plate, a matt black action with brushed stainless barrel. It is glass bedded, with the barrel floated, in a factory Remington BDL wood stock that has been glass beaded to expose the texture then camo painted. It has a Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad and Weaver bases installed. This rifle has been test fired only. Attached is a photo of three, three shot groups shot at 100 yards,temp about 40 degrees with a little wind. No time was taken to do the recommended barrel break in routine. The loads were something just pulled from loading manuals all three are 54.5 grains of IMR 4064, with the Speer 270 semi-spitzer or the 250 Nosler Balistic Tip.

If I didn't have a pair of 9.3x62s, I'd be on this like a duck on a Junebug.

Whelen-

Think we were both eyeballing this one for some time on GB...<grin>
And, FYI, yes, WA is taking a loss on this one.

Bump.

You're right. I was looking for quite a while too.

I finally couldn't resist.

Then this 375 came along . . . . crazy

I had an eyeball on it also. I asked the guy why the heck he painted a wooden stock. He replied, You buy the stock of your choice and I'll mount it for you. I bought a CZ 550 American instead. I really do like the idea of the Remington receiver.

That's why I finally bit on it.

Lots of stock options (as well as trigger, mounts etc.)

Second thoughts are creeping in . . . .

A guy can't really have too many mediums, can he? confused

That's okay. I can handle it.

Maybe this is a strategy that can be used more often.

Deflect the blame to the seller.

I'll have to try it! grin

PM sent.
