I've decided I want to have a 7x57 again.... I currently have a tikka m695 left hand in 270 sat in a mcmillan stock which I find very comfortable to shoot. I've been considering having it rebarrelled into 7x57 but I'd like a light weight stainless sorter barrel as it's not for range work at all but for stalking.
Now the thing is.... I've seen a ruger m77 in left hand with a stainless barrel in my caliber of choice for less money than a rebarrell. BUT I will have to scope it and hope to find an after market stock at some point.
I could sell the tikka and put the funds towards the ruger stock etc and just stick with that one rifle or I could just get the tikka rebarrelled...
Do I risk buying a second hand rifle for a hundred quid or so less than a barrel job or do I get the tikka done? Or is there anyone out there with my dream rifle a heym sr30 straight pull in left hand 7x57 who wants a 270!? Lol
If anyone knows of an aftermarket synthetic left handed long action ruger m77 stock for sale..... could help my decision!
