    He's having a laugh... i recently viewed a stainless model with bell&carlson aftersales stock and very little wear. The dealer was asking 300 - i could easily have got it for 275

    Is it a PSS heavy barrel?

    I bought a Remington Adl in .308 with a wooden stock from the Sportsman last year for 395 brand new.
    A second hand .223 Adl (which are normally a lot cheaper than the Bdl) should go for around 295 -300 if it is still in good nick.
    Muir, Bdl drop down floor plate, Adl closed magazine, load from the top.

    I have a handle on the ADL/BDL differences as I have owned many of both. I thought Scout was saying it was an ADL with the floorplate, which raised my bushy eyebrow. ~Muir

    it may be bdl dont realy know much about that series to be honest but at 400 clams i thought it was too much money
    lad thats selling it is a good pal of mine hes a police sniper so knows his kit but i feel 400 is way top side i thougt about280 its probably worth that all day long?

    Either will shoot well. My concern is that the BDL's usually sell for much more. I wouldn't want you to pay BDL prices for an ADL.~Muir

    Some nice prices you lads are mentioning. I was quoted 1300 Euros for a bog standard sps here in Ireland. The chap even thought it was a good price. The cheapest I could get one for in the end was 900Euro but at least in stainless . Second hand they charge almost the same. Saw a second hand old swift for 800 Euros.
    You might even be better off paying more for a good second hand rifle from someone you trust, than ending up with a lemon for a bargain.
    What is 100 back or forth if you have years of fun with a good rifle.
