    Considering its as new and tested to be bloody accurate, you could buy with confidence.
    Better than buying new and being in a lottery as far as accuracy is concerned.

    Yea this is the "enhanced" version, scary good accuracy considering I had little time behind it, I have a F open set up in 6.6-284 and its pretty close to it, for the money its quite amazing really.

    Yup. And a bloody fair price.

    What are the triggers like?
    Just did some loads for a mates HCR which also was a bloody good shooter accuracy wise but the trigger resembled an 1960s BSA air rifle. Even after some adjustment.

    I Liked it, I wound it to its lightest setting and thought it was pretty bloody good, my F open breaks at 200 grams so Im used to a super light break however I found the RPR great, especially for the money.

    Just thought I'd add my support, I've got one of the originals, came from the factory with about a 1.5lb pull extremely clean and a really nice break, helps it also shoots the lights out of anything I've put up against it.

    2.5k for the enhanced version (muzzle break, slightly better handguard and a metal bolt shroud) sounds a good price for one thats confirmed to be a shooter.

    People know what they look like but it's easier to shell out $2500 for an item they can see and inspect. Sight unseen, not so much

    Mate of myn has one shoots ragged holes all day saw him ping a couple of goats at 730M , only downside there not really hunter friendly due to the weight but then if you can shoot animals that far away guess you can just shoot from the truck !
