Now I need to find a 300winmag 5r for sale! If not then maybe the sendero or custom!
Check around. They're out there. I found mine on Gunbroker in like new condition. It came with a muzzle brake that I replaced with my suppressor adapter. So really, the price of the gun saved me a couple hundred off of new price, and having the muzzle threaded on the 26" bbl was an added bonus. I'm always extremely cautious about buying guns over the internet, but this purchase turned out great.
I was able to get into mine cerakoted, suppressor adapter, trigger, and bedded for less than new price. I was able to install and adjust the trigger and bed the stock myself to save on gunsmithing costs.
