I am potentially looking at an ex-demo rifle but I am not exactly sure what sort of use it may have had. The gunshop is a distance away, so I don't want a long journey if it's gash.
Would the demos have been by manufacturer or retailer and is it likely to have had much live fire use?
In my experience, there are relatively few retailers that have the facilities to offer test fire of rifles and fewer would allow a new rifle to become, well, ex-demo.
Does anyone have experience from the trade side of whether an ex-demo is likely to have had a lot of rounds through it or rough use?
