Ok guys, update, have one guy who wants to buy one now, and another guy who says he will buy it when he gets moved.
I DID have a second like gun, same cal. and condition that I was considering giving to my 11 year old, years down the road but that is a ways off and I have a target/varmint rifle project coming up.
I expect to have the gun sold either way, but could be persuaded to sell the second one I was going to keep.
Looking closely at BOTH guns, the only difference is that ONE gun has a 3.25 lb trigger, and the other 3.5 lb. Other than that they are identical in every aspect. There is a bluing spot I noticed on BOTH rifles I have, about 6" from end of forearm, on top side of bbl where they rested on a gun rack, the bluing is perhaps 65-80% there, some wore off. Spots are about 3/8" wide, and only 1/8" or so vertical - along axis of bore.
Anyone wanting one, let me know but I have two firm offers pending....finalizing one and awaiting word on the other.
Any questions or picture request hit me a PM. Thanks.
As a side note, a NULA rifle in this cal. I believe is $3,100 per website: http://www.newultralight.com/HTML/custom-rifles.html
