My apologies for the last post though I don't know whether I am apologizing for me, my computer, or my ISP. I completely missed the report on your shooting and must have just passed over the barrel description.
Remington Model 700 .223 BDL Custom Deluxe for the traditionalist who likes blued metal and a walnut stock. The gun is in very good condition. A few handling marks. I traded another rifle for this one for my son. He found a .243 that he liked better. There are a few smudges in the clear coat on the butt stock and there are a few very minor imperfections in the blueing on the barrel (apparently from coyote blood not being wiped off in a timely manner). No pits or rust on any of the metal though. The bore is in excellent shape and the muzzle crown is perfect. The trigger has been adjusted and is very light and crisp. This is a beautiful rifle. I just do not need it. $700.00 shipped to your FFL. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Thanks.
