    I have a Omark 44b that has sat in a safe for 20 years before I got her.
    Just got the stock redone as had been cut down to accomodate a metal "claw" style butt. Now highly polished finish. Removed old NRA sticker.
    Barrel is bright and clear Crome moly
    Has the big bolt thru attachment on the bolt.
    Some staining on barrel from sweets cleaning - ideally bluing needs re-applied.
    Currently has weaver varmint scope with 1/8 Moa clicks.
    Tapped and includes weaver style bases - Sun Optic QD rings.

    PM if interested and we'll talk $ and I'll share some pic's.
    Was thinking this would be a project to change to a 6.5 Creedmore.

    @Jae

    What sort of $'s are you thinking of spending?
    Currently has 20MOA rail on it, with 6-24 x 56 Nighteater in 30mm rings fitted, threaded M18 x 1 with thread protector and NRA approval sticker on butt. Butt is original TR style.
    NRANZ changed the rules for F/TR (removed suppressors) to comply with international rules.
    Can take the optics, scope and fittings off if you're looking for 'original'
    I still have the original Parker Hale aperture sights, various diameter apertures, original hardware and custom built carry case (wooden), but the foresight may not fit due to threading.
    PM me if it interests you.
