I looked online, & went thru all my options on Wby's website, before I went to pmace my order. The guys behind the counter went thru multiple catalogues from thier various suppliers. None were available. All but the first store said no go. The first said they would do whatever it took to find one, (there is a reason I went there first) The last guy muttered something about the WSM, & specifically brought up the whole lawsuit as the reason. (there was a reason I went there LAST
It struck me as odd, so I called up the first store with the reasoning the last store said, & all I got in response was "....hmm, could be..... Can't figure why else...... But ill bet with enough looking we can get you one.... Somehow."
Now I really trust the first store. & its been years since I've even hered of that lawsuit, so I thought it had gone away. I'm glad to here its done with, & now I'm just confused why, & how the guy at the LAST store used the lawsuit speciffically as the reason, & why nobody (locally anyway) can get one??....
Guess I don't need to go to the last store for anything firearms related anymore huh.
Well, now I have a decision to make.....
It's a hard pill to swallow when you spend weeks deciding on upgrades to the cheaper rifle, to be told you can't get it.
I'm thinkin if I stray away from the Model-70 Ill regret it now. I'm gonna have to sleep on it some more. I dunno. I'm gettin "gunshy" about straying now.
I need alot BIGGER tax return, so I don't have to decide. I could just get one of Lens sweet lookin turn-key rigs in 300WSM & problemb would be solved! Not factory, guaranteed accuracy, not like anything I've ever owned before, but I could be at ease buying one.
I'm seriously thinkin the daydreaming part is way more enjoyable than the buying part of any new gun at this point, unless its a custom. No wonder so many guys go that route.
I'll let you guys know what I find out.
