    Forbes 20b .243win

    Anyone interested in buying one of these? In As new condition, hard Case, rings, manual etc all there. Shoots 1/4" groups @ 100m, fired about 30 shots smoked 3 Reds.

    $2100 is about what I would be after. Could include some ammo I've loaded (probably keep the reloading gear as it's the same Cal as the new rifle)

    I've been offered a nice Steyr Mannlicher but will only buy if this went.

    This rifle is back for sale as I have decided the right handed stock on this doesn't suit me as I'm left handed.
    I haven't used it yet so it is still in as above new condition. $2100.

    Would look at doing a deal with someone who has a Kimber Montana .243 and keen to swap.

    @dorcus?

    30 shots: 3 deer, that's your ratio isn't it?

    Sold the house too cheap, and paid excessive agents fees so 22.250 has to go before another rifle in the cupboard. K

    To be fair this guy is left handed, and bought it to try out (its a RH rifle) the person I was to buy the Steyr off pulled out minutes after @Huntn bought the rifle off me. I would have this one back in a heart beat but I literally bought a Tikka T3 243 days before he relisted this for sale.
    If anyone wants to buy a brand new T3 I will take this Forbes back.

    Only reason im selling it is I had surgery on my wrist couple years ago, I now have a scar through the middle of my palm/wrist which is still very sore and sensitive, the shape of the stock on the forbes for this reason just does not suit me shooting left handed.
