    I take it's the one in Yorkshire?
    Not being funny but that price isn't far off a new one.

    I'll drop you a PM with a contact I use a lot, wouldn't want to breach any advertising rules.

    Well, there aren't many listed on Guntrader, in fact, just one that I can see. At that price, it's a long way from a bargain. There's a Parker-Hale 1200 in .30-06 for 250 and you can test fire at the dealer's range or for 20 he'll send to a potential buyer on approval. With that kind of offer, I don't see how you could go wrong. If you don't like it, you send it back. -JMS

    If it's the one that I can see listed I agree with what's been said already, no bargain far from it.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I can't follow this......... is everyone looking at the same prospect?

    The price on both the W.Yorks rifles equates to new because they are new. Neither is a T3 Hunter.

    The price on the only used T3 Varmint isn't too bad with a mod included, but it's no lightweight. If you're set on a T3 it makes sense to buy it in a long .30-06 action.

    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Didn't want to confess his handicap on the post then .

    That's 200 off new, so reasonably priced. People forget the premium tagged on Lefthand actions.

    I confess that I was looking at the wrong rifle or perhaps the details have changed.

    I appreciate what you say Sinistral about southpaws having to pay more for new rifles but usually second hand left handed rifles are lower in price as they are considered more difficult to shift.
