    Rem 783 and baikal 223

    Brought the rem 783 as a spare to lone to people... Hasn't been used in a year + so time to get rid of it. Left suppressor for a while so has surface rust of outside of barrel, and in a few other spots. Last time I used was shooting 1.5inch at 100m wih factory, didn't mess round with it much. Threaded in 1/2*20 (99% that's what it is)

    $400 had a rail on it, can put back on or have a hunt around for some rings, factory ones will b somewhere @jim_160
    @Cody.a sorry needing cash not a new shotgun, apologies

    Baikal I brought a a short range island rifle. Had been shortened when I brought it, had thread and suppressor included in sale. Shortening has affected accuracy... Has a gremlin somewhere, took sling screw out as that was rubbing on barrel, re checked rings, etc etc.... @Pointer

    $250 have rings will dig them out... Prefect as a pack rifle for possums at a hut or round the farm for short range euthanasia.

    Nearest location is chch happy to take more pics or let people have a look / shoot just send through p.m.

    Will be taking them both out for a few shots next week.

    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Ok its not a great group, was a pack of winchester that's been lying round for 5+ years, shot off a day bag at 100m. Could prob have shrunk the group a bit if I had done my part...
