    BSA Imperial Featherweight in .270

    BSA Imperial Featherweight in .270 Winchester.

    Good used condition. Has spent its life hunting, has been to the Wapiti blocks back in the golden years. Rebarreled by the older chap I got it off, and then he didnt do much with it. Has excellent bore condition. Stock has handling marks but no damage; recoil pad has worn. The rifle feed and extracts slick, very well made action. When they came out these cost more than a pre '64 Winchester model 70.

    Its a featherweight and is light and well balanced, joy to carry. Comes with the Leupold scope rings, which have been machined to fit the BSA dovetailed receiver. (But does not come with the scope)

    Will shoot Hornady 130 interlocks into an inch or just over with 61g 2213sc and gets an honest 3105 fps.

    $750.00
    (+ courier which is about $25)

    Quality classic firearm at a bargain price.

    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    I had one just like it and I've always regretted selling it. I've been watching for one for years, every time I think about buying another rifle I search for one.

    Good luck with the sale and to the new owner. They've got a real rifle. Have got a Majestic in .270 which has served me very well for the 50 odd years I've owned it and still going strong. Enjoy it.
