WTS: Custom 260 Rem 700, Brougton 5c, H-S Stock
For sale: Custom 260 Remington 700 with stainless steel 8 twist Broughton 5c barrel with H-S double palm swell stock and PTG bolt with sako extractor. Rifle built by SSG (Straight Shot Gunsmithing) in North Dakota. I purchased this gun from another member a few weeks ago and in my rush to mount a scope to the gun, I snapped off a scope mount bolt head in the action (see picture). I ordered a bolt extraction tool from Brownells and proceeded to snap that tool also. So, I assume that all the mounting holes in the action will need to be drilled to 8-40 and retapped. I am in the process of moving to another state, so I really do not have the time to deal with my compounding errors on this gun. I think the guy I purchased it from said it cost around $2,200.00 to build and he thought if had 250-300 rounds down the tube. Barrel is 26 inches long and .830 at the muzzle with an 11 degree target crown. Trigger is old style fully adjustable set at 2.5lbs by SSG. Asking $1,200.00 for the gun as is shipped to your FFL. Or if a gunsmith here on the forum is interested in removing the damaged bolt and re-threading to 8-40, I would like a price quote for performing that work.
