Montana Rifleman 1999 .338 Lapua magnum *GUN TRADED*

Up for sale: Montana Rifleman model 1999 in .338 Lapua magnum. Barrel is 26" #8 heavy contour, 1:10 twist with a threaded muzzle brake. Action and barrel have been cryogenically treated by cryoplus. Ken Farrell scope base and rings are included, never been lapped.

Stock is a custom fitted synthetic stock from MPI stocks. It is a tactical style stock, green with black webbing. It has the pachmayr decelerator butt pad installed.

Gun has had less than 50 rounds down the barrel. I just dont have any long ranges available to me and I have spent very little time with it in the few years I have owned it. Shoots great, but 200yds isnt a challenge for this gun and thats the longest range I have available to me.

A set of RCBS gold dies go with this, neck sizer and seater. I also have some lapua empty cases you are welcome to. Also have about 45 or so Lost River ballastic bullets, these were discontinued a few years ago and are all copper lathe turned bullets.

The gun does have a few scratch/rub marks on the barrel.....by this I mean, there is no bare metal showing but there is a mark on it, so you call it what you want. There is also a very small chip in the stock at the top of the cheek rest on the front edge, but its pretty small.

Price break down: Long action from montana is 1100, plus bluing, plus shop labor to modify to .338 bolt face, plus cost of muzzle brake/installation. So about 1300 dollars. Stock from MPI custom fitted with upgraded butt pad was 700+. Ken Farrell rings and bases another ~200. Long story short, theres a lot of money tied up in this.

I'll let it go for $1500 shipped to your FFL dealer. payment by USPS money orders please.

I am in Fort Dodge, IA. You can email me with questions at: corey.kelly@gmail.com

I realize I am new guy here...in fact I only joined one time to try and buy some winchester .264 mag brass from a individual here. I have ebay feedback and also some feedback on other various sites I can direct you to if you wish.

What is the approximate weight of the gun? How effective is the muzzle brake?

I think I weighed it one time with a scope on at 15lbs with bipod. I can check it again if you want, but it is a pretty heavy gun.

Muzzle brake is very effective. Combine the weight, muzzle brake, and pachmayr buttpad and you have a mild recoiling gun....it'll still let you and everyone else know there is plenty of power there, but its managable. I can stand shooting it off the bench with just a t-shirt on for about 20 rounds or so.

Re: WTS: Montana Rifleman 1999 .338 Lapua magnum

Ah yes I should have mentioned this....

I am open to some trades, even some not fire arm related.

I do have a soft spot for the older S&W revolvers, older as in recessed chambers and pinned barrels. .41 magnum takes priority, .357's/38 Specials welcome also.

My fiance is getting started into digital photography....so if anyone has any accessories that can be used with a Olympus e-620 (4/3 lens system) I would be interested in those also.

I'm open to other offers, shoot me an email with what you have in mind.

Edit: Oh yea forgot......Anyone has a NIB or LNIB Colt Delta Elite I'll definitely wheel n deal on that.

Thanks

Corey

I am interested, please tell me how you broke in the barrel? What would you use to ship it in?
Thanks,
Ray

Well, basically the barrel ISN'T broke in really. I started by firing a round, cleaning, firing a round, cleaning.....eventually working up to firing a string of 5 and then cleaning. But the gun has only about 30 rounds through it. So....some people would say its broke in, others would say it isnt. For me I consider it broke in when it gets 50-100 rounds through it.

Gun would be shipped in a long cardboard box with padded foam and I generally bubble wrap the gun itself also if there is enough room in the box. The gun club I belong too generally has plenty of gun boxes laying around for me to do this, so it shouldn't be a problem. This is basically how it was shipped to me after MPI fitted the stock to the barrel/action.
