    Sako Vixen 17 Fireball for sale

    I got this a while back at which point it was chambered as a 17 Mach IV. I sent it off to Abe have the barrel fluted and have it suppressed. He pulled the barrel out to find that the barrel threading job was a shocker, so I had the chamber cut off and got it re chambered into 17 Fireball. Since getting it back I have only put a few rounds through it to sight in the scope and its been sitting on the to do list since...

    What it comes with is:
    Bare rifle
    Supressor (AB Precision Carbon)
    Brand new Redding 17 Fireball die set
    Redding Case forming die set
    Hornady 17 Mach IV die set (I would think that you could interchange these)
    A heap of brass! 150-200 x 221 Fireball brass thats been necked down to 17 plus several hundred more that has been necked to 20 Cal (got of a mate that had a 20 Vartag but rechambered to 20 Tactical - mostly once fired). 150 ish 222 Lapua brass that I have formed down, needs turned still and annealed (new brass). A bag of new/once fired Factory 17 Fireball brass
    400ish 20gr Zmax projectiles
    About 900g of 2207 Powder

    I believe the barrel is a MAB, its 20 inches long. Abe said its mint inside, done very little. Receiver blueing is very good, bolt and bottom metal is worn but would come up well if reblued or coated (like Cerakote). Stock isn't an original and is pretty plain, but functional. I have a nice walnut blank that I was planning on making a stock for it eventually.

    All the above owes me $1,750. The 30mm Optilocks pictured are brand new, I want $250 for them. I would chuck in a Sako one piece base with 25mm rings with the rifle though. Scope is not for sale.

    I'll Add photos in the next post...
    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    I have, buy now is $1,850 plus $30 postage on Trade Me , so I might end up $50 worse off on TM, or if someone buys it here they save postage at least, or $130 vs buy now hit there...
