Eddibo is a great friend on mine. He is a lawyer in south Ms and good friend also with Geraci. Geraci comes up and plays in the shop with us and has been teaching us . I am a Tool and Die maker by trade so machine work is easy to me. This 280 weighs 10 lbs with the scope and stuff. Nice gun but i just built me a lightweight in a 284 Win and the 280 was sold to a friend i work with. Now he wants to sell it and have me build him a light weight 284 win.
