Have my application in for a .270 and was asking my local RFD to keep an eye out for a secondhand "first rifle". Turns out he has a Finnbear that he is selling on commission for San old work colleague of mine and would be happy to let me deal direct.
The gun was my ex colleagues late father's gun and has been gathering dust for a few years. Mechanically sound but a week bit rust on the barrel (outside only) and some wear to the blueing. RFD reckons I can get this for under £200. As it is a particularly long rifle I wonder about getting 2-3" taken of when I get it threaded?
At that money I could invest in a decent scope and moderator.
Thoughts and options would be appreciated.
