    Well..... Have you?


    I've been noticing a surplus of used/LNIB/new barreled actions (mostly 700's) coming up for sale on the various 'boards. Many with some of the basic mods already done. Some already built with custom tubes/triggers/etc.

    Sounds like a good time for a man to come in and snatch some up...... :wavey:

    Oh, and I also heard that some more McM specials are about to drop on the market as well......

    What perfect timing.

    Duuuuuuudeeee, that's like asking me to give out my SS#.


    You're a savvy guy, check all the usual places.


    What are you thinking about building?

    Dunno...

    If I had to guess, maybe a combination of people selling off potential projects in lieu of economic downturns, combined with the fact that boltguns aren't likely to be a potential "ban" item?

    Just browsing around and it was something I've been noticing. Lots of 'OBO', so it just seemed to me that there was the potential for some snags.

    most that I can see are just normal non-heavy, tapered barrels

    Yeah, my dad has been picking up bolt guns for fractions of their value recently. He's actually gotten to the point where anytime I talk to him he says "well.. it's been xx days since I bought a gun!"

    And I think you're spot on with the reasons their selling.

    Sounds like you are looking around hunting orientated sights. Tactical guys, BR guys, and varminters all generally side with heavier patterns......



    Lighterweight stuff not your style?

    no it is, I just have plenty of hunting rifles like these, is all I meant. some of the other heavier 700's I wouldn't mind having though.
