    From the bay of plenty, wow. I grew up in Katikati.
    Thanks mate appreciate it. I keep hearing that the people down there are real good types.
    We are looking forward to it but it’s been a mission getting down there. Should be down early December though getting settled in.

    Mate that's a bit freaky , I grew up in Kati also, did all my schooling there , folks had a small kiwifruit orchard firstly down Leverly Lane off Park road then down Beach Road. Small world.

    My parents did some work on the kiwi fruit orchards as well as milking.
    We lived down matahui road but the spelling is probably wrong.

    @Sako851 Free Bump for a great deal with the stocks , bedding ,scope & Supp ,in a proven rifle .What power is the scope info may help ?

    Perfect Kiwi Bush Pig set up IMO ,l still have mine from 22 yrs ago from memory. Good Luck with the sale & if your family love the outdoors you will love it down here ,our farm is out of Otago but if you need anything give us a yell if l can help l will ,we need as many outdoors loving families as we can down here to keep the Latte set refugees away.





    @Siras88 That is a original Remington Laminated stock ,they are a great stock as far as shape & balance but obviously "heavy " by computer Ninja Hunter standards .I have a Rem Mountain Rifle,Laminated, SS in 06 l have hunted around the world with for a couple of decades now & Stug made me one of his first CF stocks for it ,but l still use the Lam for most of my hunting as it balances & steadies nicely for off hand shooting & takes any knocks you can throw at in the field.

    If you are looking to get one maybe hit up a few Gun Smiths & see if they do not have one sitting around a owner had them swap out for a Gucci Plastic Fantastic. Hunting rifle Balance & Recoil control obviously does not show up in google search for the internet Ninja Sniper ExSpurts

    Gore is famed for its bogans, Valiants & line dancing. But you got plenty of good hunting in Southland

    Hey thanks for all that @bunji
    The stock was originally for a SAUM caliber possibly with a heavy barrel? So my pencil barrel .308 is verrry free floating. Scope is 3-9x.
    I agree with your position on the perfect bush rifle, I would probably switch back to the synthetic stock for purely bush stalking or get a CF stock but like you say the laminate makes it super solid and takes up some recoil.
    @chainsaw haha the hunting and fishing will make up for it

    Yeah I actually enjoy it, with the other stock small stuff would get stuck down by the barrel but this is less of a problem now

    I had to travel down to Gore, Winton and Otautau to install some very fancy cctv in a certain farm suppliers because you lot apparently like your fertiliser and iodine a bit too much

    Stayed in Riverton and got accosted daily for 'spying' on you all. Loved it, had a laugh with the locals, put up a few "24 hour cctv" stickers on some lamp posts too just to keep you on your toes

    I can probably deliver for free on the path down from Manawatu to Gore in early December if that helps anyone.
