    WTS: 303 cut down rifle

    I also have a SHT Lee action with a 2 groove 303 barrel. Overall length is I think 780mm long.
    It has a rear sight cut and welded to the top of the action. So the charging clip can't be used as a sight is welded in place.

    It has a sporterised stock and a rubber butt plate.

    It doesn't look that great but it works and it has a 10 shot mag.

    Last time I checked it heads spaced ok, and I will check it again when I get back.

    Would make a good bush gun but not sure what it will shoot like.

    Will add a photo if wanted, that is if I can get onto a computer.

    Open to offers.

    I looked on trade me to see what it might be worth, and I think people out there think cut down 303s are worth quite a bit.
    Only want to sell to raise more money to buy @Toby scope.

    I just got back from Fiji not long ago. I would say the barrel is about 14"

    No idea on price. $100 maybe. Offers considered

    Sorry mate, only just picked up another 303 for a project. Maybe next time when the mrs doesn't suspect anything!

    No worries. I got a P14 rifle with a buggered barrel so I just need to figure out what to do with it. If I can get a P17 bolt I will make it a 308 or maybe 45-70 if I can't get a bolt cheap.
