    I have a very nice condition, stock condition 243 Carbine I don't shoot and need to sell. I have fired about 100 rds doing load development, and found the gun to be a 5/8" 5 shot group gun for me at 100 yds. Something is wrong with the trigger as the safety doesn't engage, but I haven't looked into what is wrong.

    I should have the iron sights for her, and will leave the weaver base, no rings or scope seen in photo's included. Has a few dull spots in a very good, what I believe to be factory finish.


    Asking $525 shipped. If you like 788's and want a good shooter, this may fit your needs. I hate to sell it w/o a replacement good shooter, but a past trade thread didn't get any response.

    Just in case... I am looking for a rem 700 VSSF sst 223, found a few but need this to sell toward purchase...

    Pm me for more information or detailed picts.

    Nice clean old gun, shoots very good.


    PM me an offer if interested. I need another small caliber gun that I might shoot, this gun just takes up space in my vault.

    Thanks

    i hope this doesnt get me in trouble here but if i were selling it i would list it on gunbroker.com . There is a pretty good market for 788s there.

    good luck, huuf

    I have a Canjar set trigger on her right now, safety still doesn't work but the trigger is sweet.


    May keep her and see if she shoots any better .....

    Thanks
