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.

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.

No way would I pay that, $600 was a decent deal for both parties, $800 is a joke. :twocents:




Ya that's what I thought too.

Most of those on gunbroker hadn't sold yet, a guy I know sold his last year for 750.  They seem kind of high but people are buying them.

I bought a regular barreled Ruger 77 22-250 with 6x Redfield about 5 years ago for $250. I bought a Stainless M77MKII 338 with a Bell&Carlson stock 2 years ago for 325 no scope. You can find a lot better deals out there if you look around.

I will take that Redfield from ya!! My kid needs a scope for his 30.30. How much will you charge a 10 year old boy looking for his first deer this coming season?

Seriously, how much. That would be cool to start him off with a Redfield scope!!
