    cheers N

    Jdr what's custom about the rifle.

    Yes 350. To be exported to its intended destination it had to be classed as second hand. We therefore arranged for it to be fired so that it was. You should get many thousands of rounds through a 223 before it needs rebarreling. No two shooters ever agree on a precise figure, but it must be in the low tens of thousands if you treat it nicely.

    It's a T3 Tactical, cerakoted in matte black and with superb stock and glass. Top of the tree for accuracy. It's custom in the sense that it's not an out-of-the-box T3 and various adaptations have been made. Third eye ring set and pillar bedded, a specially chosen type of reflex moderator, cerakote all over to the customer's spec and a change of stock. Perhaps "personalised" would be a better word, but it's a fag paper's worth of difference.

    Nice rifle, why does every insist on derailing someones ad because they think its too much money in there opinion, if you must coment pm the bloke, after all he is a trade member and is entitled to try and make how ever much or little he wishes from the sale, that's how business works the market/custoMets will decide the price they are happy to pay. Rant over good luck with the sale

    FYI,

    When people on here call a rifle "Custom" they are usually referring to the rifle having a custom action (Stolle, BAT, Surgeon etc) as the base for the rifle with a custom barrel (Kreiger, PacNor, Lothar Walther etc) bedded into a custom stock (McMillan, Manners etc). What you have here is a factory Tikka T3 action with a custom barrel and stock. I am not calling the Tikka T3 a crap action to base a rifle on, I currently have a stainless T3 being rebarreled into a 22-250rem, I love Tikka T3's, but they certainly are not custom actions, they are very good, strong, well engineered mass produced factory actions. Which is why you are getting the flack you are with this post. To add to the above I had a .223ai stainless steel T3 built with a kreiger 1 in 8 barrel, bedded in a Mcmillan A3/5 stock, Ase Utra compact sound mod with redding competition dies, custom bore guide, sling and leupold mounts, the rifle had only 50 rounds through it when I sold it. I paid 2700 for all parts and gunsmithing and sold it on guntrader after a long long wait for 1500. Your rifle looks very nice but your pricing is rather unrealistic.

    Good luck with your sale.

    You would perhaps do better to offer it as an option without the scope too.
