    It sucks being a seller at the moment, seems no one wants to part with their hard earned cash... I suppose to be expected leading up to Christmas but it has been so cold all year on the selling front. People won't go near their wallets (me included) unless it is a steal. I don't know what this particular rifle is worth but your asking price seems pretty reasonable from the little I do know.

    There have been a couple of rifles on here in the last couple of weeks (this one included) that I have had to fight myself and sit on my hands. For me it is because I have moved away from any decent hunting and drastically cutting down the number of rifles sitting unused in my safe. Also building a house which is eating up the budget.

    Good luck with the sale.

    Yes I'd also be all over this to match the same rifle I have in 280AI. But I have a 260AI still and a b-cat hopefully in the post.

    Can recommend these rifles as incredibly light and accurate.

    Good comment @Dorkus. I'm tempted and tossing up to get this or do some work on my boys Mod 7 260. I have read a bit on these on US forums and some say the inletting and stock finish is shite and the bolt runs like it has a handful of sand in the action. @Rangidan how sweet is your rifle in terms of factory finish.

    The safety hole was disappointingly finished but a rub with some wet & dry sorted it. I sent it back straight away because it did not feed they set the mag spring down properly and sorted it, still disappointing after spending that money. Bolt is smooth the stock is a real nice fit and great to carry cool little shooter, don't really want to sell it. Hope that helps cheers.

    Same, If I could view it in person to see how it fits & feels.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!
