    Had a customer come in and wanted me to post some pics and information on his rifle. He is selling it to fund a Raptor Stalker project.

    I built this rifle and its based on a fully trued Rem 700 Long action. Here are the specs:

    Rem 700 Stainless steel receiver, Right hand
    Holland comp recoil lug
    Wyatts 3.820" extended mag box installed
    Factory trigger adjusted and tuned to roughly 2 lbs
    Remington LSS factory stock
    Lilja #6 heavy fluted barrel, roughly 28" barrel length
    APS Small Painkiller muzzle brake
    Bead Blast matte finish on barreled receiver
    Pillar bedding
    Nightforce 20 moa 1913 pic rail base
    Leupold PWR rings
    Zeiss 4.5-14x 50mm w/ 1000 yard rapid Z reticle
    Harris 9-13 Swivel base bipod with leg notch and pod lock installed

    The rifle has been used for two hunting seasons I believe and has taken several bull elk and some deer. Not sure of the total round count through the barrel but it is not very high from what he told me, still a hell of a shooter.

    When I tested this rifle it shot very well for its weight, easily 1/2 moa out to 1/2 mile and when the customer picked up the rifle we took it out and he put three shots inside 6" at 1100 yards. Not to bad for a sporter rifle that is only around 1 lb heavier then a stock Rem 700 LSS.

    The Rapid Z reticle works very well and he has drops figured for his load. Fully broke in, fully tested and ready to hunt with, no load development needed, a true turn key rifle with lots of power.

    Not sure what his exact load was but he will likely chime in here and post those details. I know he was in the 2850 fps range with the 300 gr SMK which is pretty good out of the 28" barrel length.

    Recoil is very comfortable from this relatively lightweight rifle.

    Asking $3200 for complete package, rifle, scope and bipod. Said he was flexible on price to some degree. Said he was not really looking for any trades but may be interested possibly depending on what was for trade. Again, he will likely post some of the finer details on here as well.

    Good mid weight rifle with lots of power and a great shooter. If someone wants a long range packing rifle and can pack 11 lbs or so in a complete rifle, this would be hard to beat.

    New, this complete rifle would be $3700 so a pretty decent deal. You can send offers to me and I can pass them on or again, he may post and you can send offers directly to him. I know this rifle and as always I will stand behind the rifle for any new owner.

    Yes, he said he would sell without scope but I do not have the numbers. Send a PM to Pitbull320 and ask him what he wants for just the rifle. He did say he was open to that option as well.
