    Graeme Champion who imports a lot seems to start them at $2000, and deluxe or very high grade ones for around $2200.

    Buying a firearm made in "simpler times" may be very theraputic and nostalgic but the delorians stuck in neutral and we are here for good. Does anyone have a spare flux capacator?

    I've had a few, all of them so far have needed some sorting or setting up in some way. The most I've paid so far is $1500 for an A1 - it's pretty easy to spend another $500 getting them back to that magic .222 accuracy.

    I “invested” in a mint condition Vixen 222 a couple of years back - classic wood & blue. Cost me about $2400 from memory. Shoots like a laser.
