    Forbes 20b 308 / Mauser M12 6.5x55 / Trijicon Accupoint 3-9x40

    here are a few inmates coming up for parole and keen to get them out of lockup

    all items in exceptionally good condition, keen to sell as i now have duplicate rifles in both calibres

    police form 43a required if sending via courier
    pm me if interested, cheers


    1) Forbes 20b .308
    $2500 + postage


    excellent condition, has had very little use. one tiny mark on the underside of barrel
    exceptionally light, weighs in under 5 1/2 pounds which is lighter than a Kimber Montana but is much longer in the pull / stock giving the feel of a full size gun
    review here - https://www.rodandrifle.co.nz/forbes-rifles.html

    rifle only, no scope
    comes with 2x sets of Talley lightweight rings which are also in immaculate condition - 1x 25mm / 1x 30mm
    also comes with original hard case supplied by factory and manuals
    threaded M13x1

    2) Mauser M12 Extreme 6.5x55
    $1800 + postage


    again in excellent condition, one minor/superficial stock scratch
    purchased off @Wildman in mid May, sighted in and taken for one dry evening paddock hunt since then
    his sale thread had far better photos, if you want an impartial reference on this rifle please pm Wildman http://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co.n...perslam-19615/

    rifle only, no scope or rings
    comes with fitted rail as shown
    also included is a Mauser rifle sling in great condition
    Mauser manual included
    threaded M15x1

    - not offered for sale with rifle but can discuss separately a set of 'as new' 30mm Nightforce Ultralight Rings and/or a low round count DPT overbarrel suppressor that is minus one baffle (thread/bush to fit this rifle)

    3) Trijicon Accupoint Rifles Scope 3-9x40mm Duplex Reticle and Amber Dot
    $1000 + postage


    perfect condition. not a mark on it. in my opinion this scope is brighter than my Swaro Z3
    Serious Shooters selling this model scope for $1599

    comes with original box / manual / lens pen / objective covers
