    Hello Legionarie, I have two CF2 rifles. My .243 has a 23" barrel (not the Stutzen) and althought bought second hand 30 years ago, will still produce 1" groups. It has a 4x 40 Ednar scope (Japanese) and I have thought about changing it from time to time, but it seldom moves off zero.
    My stutzen is in 6.5x55, 19 inch barrel and is of similar accuracy and i usually take that one stalking rather than the Sako in the same calibre.
    You may struggle to get the velocity to give 1700 Ft/Lbs with .243 and a 19" barrel. but in Scotland rules are different and I beleive thet the minimum requirement is a 100 grain bullet.

    Good Hunting.

    My CF2 Stutzen in 270 Win was my first rifle purchase. it was new shop soiled as it gained a couple of marks to it whilst on the rack in the shop. I thought that the barrel length was 20" but of course I am unable to check on that at this present time.

    I have always been very happy with mine and in fact used it to shoot in the clubs annual 600 yard comp for a few years until they banned the use of scopes.

    Sorry i do not know of any for sale.

    I also have a BSA CF2 Stutzen in .270 and love it. However if its your only rife I would think twice as you may want to have a moderator to be acceptable in today's mixed up world. My Stutzen is a luxury second rifle. When I say luxury it only cost me 90 but have since put a nice Meopta scope on it.
