    Ruger AR556 and LH Tikka 308 suppressed FS

    Looking at shifting a few things Iím not really using to free up cash for something else thatíll just cost me money in the long run, but hopefully hours of fun....

    If Iím off with pricing, maybe we could negotiate but donít really need to sell these so donít lowball me.

    The Ruger is a little over a year old.
    CQR stock.
    Bought new locally.
    Fired less than 100 rounds, mainly rabbit shooting.
    Threaded 1/2x20, I got it rethreaded so I could use a suppressor I already owned on it.
    Konus 1-4x20 illuminated scope, 30mm tube, cheaper but has never lost zero and works well.
    Good solid steel rings, could do with a riser but Iíve never bothered.
    Comes with factory steel mag, and two very good plastic ones.
    Original sights and foregrip with it too.
    Ready to go shoot stuff.
    Very tidy condition, like new.
    Wanting $1650 as a package.






    Tikka is a left hand .308.
    Fluted barrel, fluted bolt, done by Gunworks.
    Barrel shortened, DPT .30 cal suppressor fitted.
    Stock is hydro dipped, and two coats of matt clear.
    Very tidy gun, only a couple of smaller marks on the stock. Shoots like a tikka does.

    Can come with no scope, the Kahles 3-9x40, or a Leupold VX1 3-9x40.

    Includes 80 rounds of Hornady Whitetail 150gn if you want it. Shoots very well through this rifle. Zeroed at 100 metres.

    Have taken this rifle for only three hunts this year and shot three deer. It hardly gets used.

    $1450 rifle/suppressor/ammo
    $1650 rifle/suppressor/leupold/ammo
    $1850 rifle/suppressor/kahles/ammo







    Happy to post with paperwork completed. Picking thatíll cost about $75 to main centres these days.

    Also travel between Southland and Canterbury a fair bit so could potentially deliver.

    Cheers
    Josh.

    I think it's either 20 or 18 inches. I'll check tonight and confirm.

    @Barefoot it is not everyday that a nice cack handed rifle pops up. Thought I should draw this to your attention.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I've tried to like Tikkas twice but in the end there is no love there.

    Tikka is tentatively sold pending funds and mail order forms.

    Ammo and scope will likely be available following confirmation of this sale if you are interested.

    Is the Kahles a KX 3-9x42? What condition is it in?
