    what do you even use this for? Looking at it? No way that any sane person could use this out in the bush as a hunting rifle... far too beautiful and expensive to deserve any real interest from me.


    BRB - just gonna sell my car and all that i have.

    Thank you for providing us broke fellas with amazing wallpaper material!

    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?

    If I was in the market I would pay $2700 ish for the rifle and around $1800 for scope, optis are $100-150 second hand so I reckon not far off the mark Buzz, reckon you will get an offer around that $4500-$4700 easy enough

    Not that I have skin in this game as I have no interest in buying this - you can take what i say however you want but i would have thought the price was a little on the high side for what it is.

    Custom turret is set for a particular ammunition and although this might have cost extra to have done it add no value to the scope unless used specifically with this rifle and load. Is the ammunition used something the new owner can get? Is it a load the new owner wants to use? Does the reloading components come with it? As an aside coming with cases and components probably should increase the value of the package but for whatever reason this is usually ignored by the buyer.

    The rifle with optilocks I would say is worth about $2.0k~$2.2k on its own. The scope on its own is worth ~2k or less on its own with the custom turret - Does it also come with the "generic" turrets as well?

    How does it shoot with the load? Is the turret adjustments accurate out to distance?

    Good luck with the sale - its a really nice, although somewhat specific, set up.

    Agree on the Sako price - but that Z6 is worth way more than 1800
    Chaps been getting 2K+ for Z5 3-15x44 BT's
    I would value the scope (if in top cond 2500 at least
    Replacement be 3200+ maybe more now if you couldn't find one in stock in retail NZ

    BUT - sales on everything are very slow - you need patience on something like this.
    That rifle 12 months ago would have raced out the door for 3K (bare)

    Certain "Blue Chip" items (Sako's-Swaoro's-Meindl's etc etc) ALWAYS sell well - "until" just recently.
    There has been a major pull back on spending in this last 3 months - like someone turned off a bloody switch.

    Thanks for that info - was wondering it might be just my pessimism creeping in :-))

    Something has really happened - I have NEVER witnessed this before
    I blamed the Election - now I am thinking Property market slowdown or turn its possible turn-around ??
