    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Well, you live and learn... every day is a school day.

    I'm pleased you've all taken delight in pointing out I've been ripped off. I have receipts here that add up to $5,134 so offering it for $4,800 just 15 days later was a genuine offer for somebody who wanted to save some money. But more fool me, it's just another opportunity to hear about the errors of my ways. On the plus side, the wife still doesn't know how much money I've squandered in the fruitless seach for a good deal.

    It is what it is. And it is for sale at $4,800 if somebody wants it. Or you can talk to @BRADS who will tell you with glee where you can buy a new 7mm08 Carbonlight for just $4,500. And if nobody wants it... I certainly won't be shedding any tears. I still own it.

    Unfortunately new firearms are like new cars; you drive them off the car lot and they instantly depreciate about 20% to 30%.

    However, look on the bright side - 30% is nothing to how much you'd depreciate if your wife walks off the lot.

    Don’t worry about it. Lots of those comments were made by folks who have bought stuff that’s the better than sliced bread and so accurate it’s not been seen before in any ones lifetime. Like March Scopes Blaser rifles that were so good they shot 57 holes in the same hole. Unbelievable feats of accuracy prompting other to follows suit. FFS it’s crazy

    Three months later sold cos we past that stage. We in Sako stage now Shops give them discounts like crazy as they are BIG clients or the shops had it on the shelf too long and it ain’t paying their rent. Nice gun keep it and tell them the truth. Best to just Get lost and leave my advertisement alone or buy it. Self appointed price spy’s who have obviously made heaps on changing their minds every three months

    Don’t care just a non bullshit rant

    Details:

    Rifle only - 7mm08. Comes with box and all the bits that you normally get with it - tools, sling attachments and manual.
    Optilocks and scope etc. not included.
    Standard factory thread - 14 x 1 mm
    As it sits here today it owes me $5,100. Will sell it for $4,800 plus shipping.

    People on here have a very good idea of the value of items, especially second hand (no matter how "new").

    Good deals are snapped up in a matter of minutes. Items that are overpriced either don't sell for weeks or attract some "banter".

    If you are going to be prescious about someone pointing out that an item may be overpriced in their opinion, TM might be a better option
