    ** New pricing info** see below in thread.


    Another gun I had built by Rich Riley with High Tech Customs. It shoots lights out. Unfortunately I’m between a rock and a hard place and need to sell off a few of my favorites. I provided the pre-64 action to Rich to build off of. This gun has only punched paper and is sub MOA with 150gr factory while fire forming Norma .280 ammo.


    Build data:
    Winchester pre-64 action (1960)
    24” stainless #2 Lilja barrel (1-9 twist)
    CeraCote metal
    High Tech Specialties stock (Bansner)
    glass bedded
    free floated
    3lb trigger
    blueprinted action
    This gun weighs 6lb 9oz as it is in the pics. Also includes are dies and fire formed Norma 280 brass.

    If you are seriously interested in any of these firearms, please shoot me an email and we can discuss pricing. Any reasonable will be considered.

    What's your asking price? How many rounds down the tube? What kind of groups?

    Pretty much to the ideal sea to sky hunting rifle right there. If we lived in the same country, I'd give that rifle a home AND put it to work.

    Good luck in the sale @mtnman5280 hope this one finds a good home!

    To help answer more questions @alden1210 and others.

    I've got a little over $3k invested in the rifle including the action, but don't expect to recover it all.

    I have only fire formed .280 factory Norma ammo through it, probably around 120ish rounds and will include any brass that I can dig up along with redding die set. It's shooting just under 1 moa at 100 fire forming the Norma ammo. I have not tried working up loads.

    if allowed, here is a link to High-Tech's page - https://www.htcustoms.com/custom-rifles/mountain-hunter

    As I mentioned, I'm open to any reasonable offers to get some unforeseen bills taken care of.
