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?

    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.
