Christensen Arms

I think I may have found this site a little to late. I was researching these rifles and stumbled upon this site. I thought these rifles were pretty good. I read some of the reviews on this site and I was suprised to say the least. My problem is I went to A wildlife fundraiser recently. They were auctioning off one of these rifles. I bought it due to the cheap price. I now have a coupon to have one built. I was considering upgrading the gun, but now I am not sure what to do. I was going to have a 300 RUM built, but after reading the reviews I am not sure. I may have a lighter caliber built and use the rifle as a mountain gun. I suppose I could try and sell the coupon and buy something else, if I could find a taker. I have only ever shot Sako rifles and have been very pleased with their peformance. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions that would help with my situation.

    What model is your coupon for? Hunter, Extreme, or Carbone One? How much did you get it for?

    I think it is a hunter with some up grades, muzzle break, lightened bolt, and some other stuff. The said it was valued at around 2,300ish.

    The hunter model has a factory barrel that is carbon wrapped. I had one in 300 rum and I honestly would sell it if it was me. I could never get mine to shoot that good and I payed $1,800 for mine. Just my .02

    I thought about upgrading to the shilen barrel and a different action. I think now I will sell it.

    It might be worth it to upgrade for a shilen barrel but that depends on how much you paid for the coupon.....
