    @Dynastar27 was selling one a few weeks back. Not sure how he got on. Was a Marlin I think. It would be fine for the back of a truck.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yes, looking at something like that or the Ruger American or Howa compact models
    Don't have to be pretty just needs to shoot straight and not be to long.

    I have shot a bunch of Fallow with the same rifle in .243 across the years so I know they work

    @birch
    Before I went to 'The Western side of the WEST Island', nearly 30 years ago (back in Godzone now), I sold a blued wooden mini 14 in 223, with 4x scope, 150 rounds and a gun bag, to a mate for $150. Oh how I weep for the days when rifles were sensibly priced, and 15 round mags for these were OK with the poolice. .

    Hi Mate, I have a Rem700 BDL that I can part with.. Currently it's a wildcat, but will turn back to a 223Rem to sell(can shorten and thread at the same time while at Gunworks. After $850 ($900 if wanting it threaded)

    It's on a Boyd Laminate stock.

    I have a scoped and suppressed howa 223 compact if that's of interest. SS and hogue stock. About 2 years old and maybe 40 rounds through it. Have barely used it since I sighted it in.
