Guys, had a customer send me his rifle that he wants me to try to sell for him to fund another rifle project. The rifle proved to be a bit more powerful then he needs for the vast majority of his shooting and hunting so he wants to build something a bit smaller. I tested the rifle before I shipped it to him and again when I got it back and it shot very well both times.
I believe he has taken a few prairie dogs at ranges over 1000 yards with this rifle and it shot very well for me with taylored loads. Here are some pics.
Here is the parts list for this rifle:

Asking price.........................$6200 shipped to your FFL holder
This is a turn key set up ready to go and I have load data available with rifle as well that I used to test the rifle for accuracy. I tested the rifle when he asked me to sell so that I knew what it was capable of and it shot very well, still meeting my 1/2 moa accuracy requirement.
The seller also said that the final price is somewhat flexible so shoot him some offers. I do not know for sure if he will sell the rifle alone without optics but if someone does not want the scope and just rifle, I can pass that request on.
Also, the seller said he would be willing to get the rifle recoated and stock repainted if the white finish was a deal breaker for someone interested in the rifle. Please understand however that if you want the rifle color changed, he may not be QUITE so flexible on sell price so take that into consideration.
IF someone wants to keep the rifle as is, we will be sending the bolt off to get recoated in flat black for one reason, the white bolt just gets to looking pretty bad when the rifle is used at all with any lube on the bolt lugs getting onto the bolt body. The black bolt will look much better and still fit in with the snow camo pattern, especially with the black scope.
First come first serve. The rifle is in my shop so have your FFL holder send me their FFL for shipping.
Let us hear your offers.
