Thread: .223 second hand (hard to come by)

    .223 second hand (hard to come by)

    Ditched the idea of a nef .223 I looked at awhile ago,but trying to find a .223 on a budget for foxing is driving me nuts plenty .222 and 243 cheap maybe ive picked the wrong calibre to put on my ticket.Are they really that hard to come by.Checked gun watch/gunstar etc and no joy.

    Highland Ordnance Company, Dunvegan, Skye has a lovely little .223 Czech Rifle,- a copy of a Mauser action. Only fired a few rounds, and very reasonable.
    Google them

    Not that hard to find

    If these don't float your boat then find a 222 or 243 and get a 1 for 1 variation

    If you don't mind me asking,what sort of budget are you looking at?
    Only asking because of circumstances at the moment I am spending a lot of time searching t'internet instead of doing anything constructive and I may drop on something suitable

    Worth having a ring round the local dealers as they aren't all on the web. There is a little fishing shop in Grange over Sands that has some guns at a decent price but I don't know if he has a 223. Yes I thought for the money the Ruger looked good too. I must admit I quite like the Rugers but they are a bit like marmite! I would be tempted by the CZ if it shoots 1/2 inch groups
    could also try

    but be careful of how much commission you pay

    This is like saying you can't find a secondhand Ford Focus. There is every conceivable action and class of rifle in .223 about ..... even a few in lefthand drive for the moaners.

    You aren't trying .... or maybe sniffing around SD for a bargain perhaps.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.
