    Up for sale is a Great light weight rifle chambered in 224 TTH, built by Bansner rifles. This rifle has been hunted with and does show the normal signs of hunting use. Nothing too drastic, just a few scratches on the stock, and metal coating. Round count is less than 100, and rifle will shoot 1/2 moa all day seated to magazine length. Much better if seated out long.

    I will post a link to the build specs from Bansners website, but here is a quick rundown of parts.

    Rem 700 SA trued
    PT&G spiral fluted bolt
    side bolt release
    Jewell trigger with saftey
    Lija #3 fluted barrel 8 twis26"
    High tech Specialties stock, bedded

    Asking price is $2,250 will consider trades for other nice rifles or optics.

    Here is the link, My rifle is this Ovis ultimate mountain rifle

    Also, forgot to add, I have a set of redding dies, approx 50 brass ( 40 loaded), and a couple boxes of bullets to go with the rifle for the asking price.

    TTH = Texas Trophy Hunter

    A wildcat 6mm Remington necked down to .224". I almost built on a couple years ago but went a different route. Still might build it in the future.

    224 Texas trophy hunter, basically a 22-6mm. Light bullets near 4000, heavies around 3800. Great hunting round for deer sized game shooting the 75 gr +. Very traumatic for varmints shooting light and fast.

    Ttt. If I'm out of line on the price, and show you can show me why , I'll adjust accordingly. I have never seen a used bansner for sale, so I listed this one at 1/2 of what it cost to have built. Figured that was a bargain.

    That's a great rifle from one of the top names in light weight customs. I suspect the chambering is limiting your market a bit, but with some patience you'll find the right buyer.

    I would post up the build sheet for this rifle, along with its weight. Details help to sell customs and this one has top-flight components that should be shown off to prospective buyers. Best of luck with the sale.

    It is a bargain except for the cartridge he gets over $4500 for his rifles

    A guy could buy this rifle, send it to Mark for a new tube and still be money ahead.

    in my opinion;

    You're up against two things today.
    A) An uncommon wildcat round that requires brass re-work and No "off the shelf" ammo.

    B) A political/social climate that has vacuumed up any and all components to continue building such a round. .... With no end in sight.
    Hang in there. Someone will recognize the rifle for what it is and have the resources to buy and support it.

    Muley -
    I am not the seller but I was trying to purchase this rifle myself and he traded it to another buddy. That was about a year ago. I think it's long gone
