    Model 7 tardme question?

    Hey
    Does anyone know if this is an alright price? Deal I had fell through. Looked at a super short rifle build. Not quite in NZ often for .284 or 7mmsaum at least I can just buy factory ammo for now.

    I would say it's reasonable from a retailer, still I would be squeezing them for a little off or some rings or something to sweeten the deal

    Dave is a good guy. Last rifle I bought from him was free freight.

    Cheers for that. The listing lacks general info. I have emailed him asking for more details.

    Id say that an ok deal. You'll need rings and a scope. Basic vx1 and talleys with suppressor normally see's a good condition mod 7 go for $1500

    @Gibo I have those and also already put an order in for a stug stock. The original rifle purchase fell through.
    Your 7mm was very tempting tho.

    @Gibo already got one that doesn't get the use it deserves. Well nothing does. Haha.

    price looks good but there might be a reason ? Ask lots of questions.
    I bought a Rem700 7mmRM (Sendero) off this trader a couple of years back - looked near new & claimed it shot 0.5moa. The price was good.
    Well it was near new that part of the info provided was accurate but sadly the rifle was NOT accurate or anything near it. Minute of barn door at 50 yrds maybe.
    Spent a lot of time trying different reloading pills/powder/seating depths etc etc .... all with no luck. 3 moa was about as good as it got.
    So got Truflite to put a new barrel on it - and now its 0.5 - 0.7 moa.
    Buyer beware.

    Model 7 tardme question?

    Very understandable.
    Does any one live near Waipukarau?
    Or someone have one for sale?

    That shop often prices things quite well.

    It's a fair price I think, I have a few mod 7's and wouldn't pay any more than 1100, so I don't think it's that cheap that it must have something wrong with it.

    @GWH thanks for that. I'll try give them a call as they aren't responding to emails.
