not the deal of a lifetime but a good gun for a good price and if you know the guy and know it was taken care of then theres really no risk.

I would peek at the throat with a borescope or shoot it first......they can eat a throat up bad and that means another 300bux in work. tang safety rugers are sweet.........heavy, but sweet

The scope is a $350 scope on ebay right now so not a bad deal if the gun shoots good.

Shawn.
The rifle in good shape is worth around $300. in like new shape $350.
The scope is worth about $350.
Not a smoking deal but a fair one, if your looking to get a varmit rifle then its a good deal.
Ask the usual questions, how it shoots, what ammo is likes, round count, if it was shot hot or not.

Shawn.
If you buy this rifle in 22-250 and dies,etc.
Your going to learn how to trim brass.
Not a big deal but 22-250 brass stretches enough that you'll have to trim after a couple of firings.
