This is a meticulously, professionally built rifle made for one thing, accuracy. This isn’t a thrown together parts gun, and yes, it is expensive. The rifle, ammunition, scope, etc. were all put together as a package and is being sold as such; I’m not going to break it up as so much work went into it. The rifle has set in a safe since being purchased and then built in ’97 (any smudges are from prints when taking pics) and is in as new condition ; the barrel has only been broken in. It includes a binder with all the details from the build. This would make for an incredibly fun varmint gun. The rifle is blueprinted to fire Berger 73gr LTB and the buyer should expect groups well under .5moa if the shooter is capable. The recipe is included as well as 300 live rounds of this specific hand-load ready to go. Some details… Colt Pre-Ban Sporter Competition HBAR Serial # CH007XXX 22” SS fluted Hart custom match barrel, 1:9 twist.
