Parker Hale?

Does anyone know where i could possably find a Parker Hale M85? I've asked just about every gun shop in my state and no one could tell me where i could find one.

From what i have been told and read they produce excelent accuracy. Have any of you guys used one?

Re: Parker Hale?

This past year while on our annual trip to north carolina for whitetails one of the guys in camp had a parker hale .243. Frankly the accuracy sucked. I dont know if it was a defect or what but he couldnt stay on target. The first day he missed a bobcat at 20 yards and later that night a big 8 point a little farther.
