    Second hand rifle

    Hi guys,
    Have a mate whose pretty keen on getting into hunting. He's looking for his first rifle looking for a nice second hand entry level rifle. All offers will be considered and I will put them through to him to see whether or not he likes it. His budget is $900 ish would prefer something with a scope but will consider ones without for the right price.
    Cheers guys!

    He is willing to get a rifle couriered at his expense though if the seller is fine with it

    Thank you for your offer but he's looking for something with a little more reach as he hunts a lot of open country. I would like to specify that Calibre he's after but there's quite a lot of different ones he's keen on and a lot he's not so it'd be quite a big list. Your interest is appreciated though

    I have a NEW 7mmRemMag Zastava with a wooden stock here in Chch for $900. Been in storage since the earthquakes and I even considered buying it myself. (It is still shop stock) Also have one in 270 here, also new in the same with a synthetic stock. Both will come with warranty etc.

    Otherwise, the post mentioning the M96 6x5x55 would also be a great rifle. It is the same calibre that I used to hunt with and there is not much in NZ that it is not suited for. (not really suited for rabbits and possums or cattle....) They usually go for around $500 so a decent scope is still under budget....
