    Only 500 what about the scope. I would spend that much on a scope minimum . You could try a second setup.Try Your local gun shop to see what they got. good luck woodfordfallow

    I'm in a similar position to you, I think if you have the scope, you may well find a decent deal on a rifle. I am looking at getting one of the Howa packages, but these are between 700 - 1k. It's hard to find a perfect fit with a limited budget. I am biding my time and not rushing in. Keep looking on GT, I did this when looking for my finnfire, I eventually did well with some patience
