Thread: Major clear out.....

    Major clear out.....

    OK, it’s that time again lads, clearing out a few rifles to make space for some new gear – I have a major itch that needs scratching….

    First up, CZ455 17HMR with a 16” varmint barrel and thumb hole stock. This rifle as done nothing, maybe 400 rounds. Can’t stand the thing. Comes with a Meopta 7x50. 675 for the lot, Rifle 450 and scope 250. Won’t sell the scope until the rifle has gone.

    I might take a swap on this for a half decent bit of glass - Zeiss conquest 6.5-20x50 with turrets.




    Next up, Sako 75 in 22/250. Stainless and Synthetic. Bought with the intention of rebarreling but it is too good to pull apart. 19.5” barrel cut 15x1 spigot by Steve Kershaw. Seriously accurate with a number of loads which I will share.
    Rile only 775.




    Now this one I might regret, or change my mind on.

    Sako 75 in 260rem. Sako size III action in blue, stainless Lothar Walther barrel cut at 20.5” with a 15x1 spigot thread. McMillan Sako Hunter stock, devcon bedded. Again very accurate with a number of loads which I will share. The throat was cut fairly short so it is better suited to the lighter (sub 130gr) bullets. Rifle was built by Chris Blackburn four years ago. I then had Steve Kershaw cut and re-thread the barrel (Chris was out of commission for a while). Round count is c.600.

    I want 1400 for this one.




    I also have an ASE Northstar in 224 cal with a 15x1 spigot suitable for a factory threaded Blaser. 125 posted.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
