    Rifles which will be for sale soon..

    I am going to be selling the following and will list them on trademe in next couple weeks but offer them here first.

    Reasons consolidation to one more expensive gun ...

    Please PM me if interested in more pics etc.

    1. Ruger Hawkeye M77 in a special order calibre of 6.5 x 55.
    Threaded for suppressor (Gunworks Spartan so you could have the delrin bush with it if reqd.)
    Trigger job by Dean Maisey while he threaded it . Ruger 1 " ring set. Stainless synthetic
    Have new unused Delux lee die set. 50 new cases, 65 ish once used. Plus used Lee standard die set.
    some live reloads if collected

    Worth $850.00 to forum member ?? Want the suppressor its near new add $300.00
    I do not mind keeping it for next rifle..Its currently shared with one of my other guns.
    So Id just have to go buy another.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    2. The world famous shoot a tick off the back of a flea ex VC Tikka 595. in 243 calibre.
    This is also threaded to suit Gunworks Spartan suppressor (picture shows the old ex Tui man suppressor)
    and also had trigger work whilst being re threaded.
    This is very accurate my first three shots were 1 hare at 150, 1 goat at 350 then his mate right next to him.
    I have never missed an animal in any way shape or form with this gun. Some live reloads if collected.

    Id like $800.00 for this no scope or rings but has new rail fitted..

    =========================================== :-)

    3. The other world famous in Nelson ex VC SAKO .308 with a few alterations.
    Beautiful restored stock. Threaded for Hardy suppressor. Barrell shortened just enough to lose the old fixed sight holes.
    Trigger adjusted and smoothed out.
    All metal (barrel, trigger guard, bolt ) has been (forget the name of the process) made black by Hardy Rifle engineering
    so looks like brand new. This is also a very accurate gun. Stock slightly shortened to fit over barrel suppresser but this was done by a
    fussy cabinet maker. Black Sako rings the ones with plastic doofers inside them.

    Id like $1750.00 for this.

    Is someone wants the Hardy over barrel to fit price extra = $450.00 as its 300 Win Mag one shared with one of my other guns.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This will hopefully be a three to one special consolidation ..

    going to the dark side I can assure you !!!

    Only the bits written. No slings,bi pods or any of the scopes

    .243 over 6.5 Happy? Hard decision? Mind sharing your experience comparing both calibres?

    Brain dead bro..Read that the other way round. Replacing these with hopefully Sako finlight in 6.5 x 55.
    I have way too much reloading goodies for the 6.5 to not do so plus have always had a 6.5 of some description in the safe..
    So trade off three guns to get one . The wooden Sako is too good to bush bash so I have a 308 to do that.
