You described it as 90% condition in the other post--where's the wear? She looks gorgeously brand new to me! What kind of glass are you going to top it off with?

I'm not good at judging this stuff...I guess it's more like 95%.... I sold 3 of my handguns today to pay for the rifle, and they all got bought as 95% guns, although I've shot close to 10,000 rounds through a couple and 6,000 through the third... so go figure...

There really is no wear on the outside... the bolt has a bit of visible wear, and the action looks about right for the 100-150 shots that have gone through it... Barrel LOOKs very clean, but won't know till I shoot her...

It used to have a $1200 Swarovski scope, but I can't swing that right now... will have to save up, or get something cheap and upgrade for Xmas... Also came with a couple boxes of Federal Gold Dot - which is what was shot through her I guess...

It's going to take me some time to get used to a 2lb trigger with virtually no travel... I'm used to 6lb trigger with a lot of travel on Glocks... LOL

Getting a $2400 gun for half price - I'm walking on air right now :)

PS - Her name is Mercedes...

Are you a fellow fan of the tupperware, too?! I think you and I are in the same boat: I had a bit more experience in shooting pistols than rifles, but my first rifle was a Savage 10FP in .308. In regards to your Glocks, if you didn't sell them all, get the 3.5 lb. trigger, it's only 20 bucks and it makes all the difference, especially after you perfect your trigger release.

LOL funny you say that.... I just put in a 3lb into my Glock 22 yesterday... amazing difference! I still have a few handguns and will probably get more Glocks in the future, but right now I needed to cash float this purchase so I ened up selling a few of em...

Just got back from Magnum Research - talked to the gunsmith who built my rifle... he remembers it well and shot with the previous owner. He did a once-over on it and said it's in perfect condition.

I still have not got a scope yet, so I have not shot it but, he said he's been at the range with the previous owner where it shot 2in. groups at 500m... he said 100m should be a 'ragged hole' less than .5in.

He also said this is one of the most decked out rifles he's made. Jewel Trigger, blueprinted action, boxed this and that, lots of words I am not sure of the meaning off...

He'd value it at $2700 in the condition it's in right now.... Needless to say I'm a happy camper :)
