Thread: When to bite the bullet and get rid of a rifle

    When to bite the bullet and get rid of a rifle

    Ive got a few rifles, .22LR, .222 .243 and 7-08. Ive got them in that order and loved the .222 before I got the .243.
    The .222 is an M595 stainless synthetic and is a peach to shoot when I do use it. The .243 is a wood and blue M595 and isnt as aesthetically pleasing as the .222 but gets used much more than the .222. Now Ive put a new x56 scope on the 7-08 Im struggling for space for my 12G.
    I dont need the cash and I love the .222 but would you chaps rid it or keep hold of it just in case. Ive found it hard tracking down nice 595's so dont want to regret it but I could make space and maybe just have one vermin rifle. A little overkill perhaps....

    Where the cabinet is now I couldnt fit anything bigger and the other alternative is only accessed through a hatch.

    I can potentially help,,,I'd need to get a variation through first mate, but should be no probs with my FEO tbh. I need a .222 and would be very pleased to adopt yours (depending on price and all that), and would be very happy to sign an agreement that you can buy it back whenever you wish, marked down according to use/wear of course. this may sound bizarre, but for what you want it might not be that crazy..!
