No, around here, certain models hold a value, and the A-Bolt II Composite Stalkers w/ BOSS hold really high values. I was pretty mad at first, but then I decided to rebarrel to .280 AI. However, my old smith has since retired and you need an FFL to buy the A-Bolt II standard bolt head for me to convert it to a standard caliber instead of magnum...So now I'll probably just go with a .264 WinMag, since everything is interchangeable with the 7mm RM, and especially since I have a bunch of 7mm RM brass sitting around.
Plus, it was virtually identical to the one I had for years, that got stolen back in '08, so I kind of wanted to retain a memory in my past, and was willing to pay for it. Unfortunately, the barrel internally must have been alot worse than the rifle itself looked externally.
