Re: Saw this photo on Gunaddicts.com. I wept.

Savage was really thinking when they put that adjustable cheekpiece on the Long Range Hunter, but with those scope rings, that wouldn't even get you close to the scope. Not that anyone would want to be anywhere near that awful horror-tube scope.

Forget the .338's, my .22 made a snack of a poorly considered NCStar optic once.

Luckily, the salesman who lied to my face when I bought it is now up to his eyes in legal trouble

Somehow, I think the cheapo scope was an afterthought, however tacky and the brass is once fired. Now if it's Lapua, I'm interested in buying, not the tifle, the brass.

The Pelican 1700 series case is obviously cut for something else other than the 11-111 LRH. BTW, replacement foam is $65.00

Sidecar I think your right on the scope. But it looks as the foam is cut for that gun with a bypod and maybe a 60 mm scope with sunshade that would explain then X-high rings

Looking again at the cutout, I suspect you are right. Probably had a Night Force on it or a Leupy Mark4.....

It's easy to tell the gun hasn't been used much at all. First thing to do is remove the round 'Savage' sticker from the buttstock and trim the jacket/shirt grabbing cheekpiece bolts.

When I got mine I set the cheek and promptly tore my shirt sleeve by snagging one of the exposed bolt ends. Off it came, out came the bolts and bolt cutters and I took almsot 3/8" off the ends. I realize the gun isn't over the top expensive but exposed, sharp, clothes snagging bolt ends are tacky..... (like the red round sticker).....

If I didn't have one, the price is pretty good (with the brass, providing it isn't Hornady....). It's in Canada so getting it here is probably a hassle.

Yeah its a good gun for the price with all the brass but he could keep the scope and still be ok on price

Maybe he was going for the 'complete' look...... Price is right but importing it here might be a consideration.
