Nice looking rifle! When I noticed you asking price I felt you were on par with the unsold listings though. 12fv- $300, stock $200, bottom metal $150. Then add in shipping and I think that is the top value, but hey, that’s just my opinion. GLWS.

GLWS,
THANKS for your input...I got $450 in rifle (no Cabelas sale), $200 for stock, $190 for bottom metal, $75 for threading, $120 for fitting/bedding stock, and $40 for picatinny mount... $1,075 actually. I would have traded it off at $850, but the gun shop didn't have exactly what I wanted.

Speaking of the $850 trade I missed earlier...

I'm actually looking for a Thompson Center Dimension Rifle, with extra barrels. A good used rifle with 2-3 extra barrels should equal close to $850.

The calibers I'd eventually like to have:
204, 223, 243, 6.5 CM, and 7mm-08.

Food for thought!

I feel your pain, but unfortunately the prices I quoted were for what someone could probably get those items for new. The used market rarely has anything to do with what we may have purchased for, all to do with what someone else is willing to give. Personally I do not like to spend more than 75% of what I could buy it new and I rarely ever received more than 80% of that when have sold used.

Those Thompson’s can shoot!

I know they can shoot. I recently got a TC Compass in 7mm-08. It cold bore shoots 1/4" with factory ammo, with reloads just as tight. 5R rifling is impressive. A Dimension should do as well.

Lowered the price, any opinions?
Now it’s just a waiting game. If someone wants a **** good looking rifle that is ready to go, this would be a good one. Bonus if they reload as you already have some proven recipes. I think current price is more in line with you wanting to sell it and not just trying to sell it. I sell for a living and one thing that always holds true, price stuff at market value and it sells. Hard to under price stuff as you will get multiple offers and people fighting for it, end up with market value. Very easy to overprice stuff and have it sit, even can hurt the value as others see it sit and are scared to give even what they may think value is because it looks like there is no demand with it sitting for sale for a long period of time.

Rounds:
Factory...roughly 100 (+/- 5 boxes)
Reloads...roughly 300 (emptied 2-100 and 1-50 boxes, plus a few used out of other various boxes.)
No more than 500 rounds total.
I always ran a bore snake through the barrel before every shooting...inside of the barrel still sparkles.
