Thread: K95 attache .243

    K95 attache .243

    Just thought i would see what you folks thought about my thoughts......so as some of you may know i have for some time now been trying to sell my k95,it comes boxed with a hexagonal barrel,leather strap and a swarovski variable scope with a swarovski end cap,it marries to the rifle with blazer saddle mounts.
    So i need 4750 for the complete package........no serious buyers..

    Last week i called blazer to price a new k95,{mines has fired 170 factory 100 grains max}...so a new k95 with a hexagonal barrel....5750.

    Would i get more interest for the rifle alone?? 3500

    opinions please..

    Have you been in touch with anyone like Steve Beaty or anyone that stocks them to see what they would sell it for? I only ask as they may say that 3500 is what they would re-sell if for, retail, probably with some form of warranty etc so, although it might not be what you want to hear, you may be asking over the odds for it as a second hand rifle. (I could be very wrong of course).
    Also, they are a specialist luxury item, and on the whole, people who buy these things tend be able to afford them fresh out of the box, and like the choice of calibre/ optional extras etc..... You don't get that with second hand....
    I for one, wouldn't be looking for one in .243 personally.....
    this isn't meant critically, just a few of my thoughts, the rifle is a stunner, and I'm amazed someone hasn't had it off you really, but you're probably not wrong splitting the scope of , it might make it more within reach of more folk......
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Your rifle is stunning, in a perfect world I'd buy it in a heartbeat, but:

    It's a 243.
    You can't reasonably put a can on it.
    If I knocked a lump out of it getting in a high seat I would cry.
    It is eye wateringly expensive.

    To me, it's a sunny day gun, I'd take it Roebuck stalking during the rut if I owned an estate in Hampshire.

    I would not take it Sika stalking up an Irish mountain, or through a bog.

    I love the idea of that rifle, it is just too much cash for the use I would get out if it, and it would tie up a slot on my FAC that I cannot spare.

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

    It is such a beautiful gun you have and I have just gone back to your 'for sale' thread to have another lustful look at the photos. The wood must be an upgrade as I cannot believe a standard gun has such a lovely figured stock.

    Can I ask how the gun is with rimless cartridges as against rimmed cartridges as I understand it has extractors rather than ejectors. Does it have any sticking problems when reloading for a second shot? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
    regards SBM.

    Stunning but a calibre problem for me. And yes I would put a S+B variable which I prefer anyway and are a lot less too so maybe take the scope off andf offer without.

    thanks folks very interesting,hi seibassman7 the extraction is good,but it needs to kept clean,the extractor runs down the right side of the barrel and it has a tiny little clip that holds the rim,being the peace of kit that it is it gets cleaned well after each stalk,i have not fired a shot through it in over a year now,i have not done anything but factory 243.
    price....3150 i would let it go.

    This won't help either......

    I have looked at your rifle many times, indeed I have coveted it.

    If I didn't already have a 243, and if that 243 wasn't an R93, I would be sorely, sorely tempted. I could then keep the 308 for the rufty-tufty crawling through the Scottish heather after red deer and waving at the Croatian boar, and keep the K95 for muntjac and roe down here in the soft South.

    It's a gentleman's rifle. I wouldn't even consider a moderator, and I'd lose the big scope and instead go for a simple 6x42....like the Zeiss I have sitting on the shelf.

    Every time I'd take it out of the cabinet I'd smile and every stalking outing would be a pleasure.

    It is a beautiful rifle, but sadly I can't see a way I could justify buying it.
    O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!

    While you are discussing sales and pricing strategies, you should put up the link. You never know how is searching the web for a K95, and the engines will find this fresh post and serve it up at the top of their results. Someone totally outside of SD, in another country, might find it.

    SBM,

    I have continental calibres in all my other rifles but chose .243 as my "old man rifle". Will meet my needs when I settle for the easy life.
    The extractor raises the case sufficient to remove with gloved fingers and drop the new one in all in a single motion. No difference in recycling time than with a bolt action.

    My K95 is the standard offering in Stutzen. The advantage of new is that you get to pick the engraving and what you want on the butt end. Wood upgrade if you want but the base entry is enough for me

    It's a treat to shoot with it rather than a tool. Six months having it made so a second hand will be cheaper and quicker. We all think it good to have someone willing to buy "our old rifles" but not for us to buy?

    Stan
