    Far too good to be true?

    Found a Custom Tikka T3 Laminate in 338WM for sale with following specs

    Fully floated 26” MADDCO barrel. Lumley Arms stainless steel recoil lug, stock reinforced with Sako cross-bolt and action fully bedded, Lumley Arms stainless and black parkerised stainless bolt shrouds, additional Tikka 3-shot magazine, and reloading dies. Sako Optilock 30mm rings and bases. Labelled as Excellent Condition.

    Asking $1300

    Something has to be wrong to be that cheap surely? Otherwise I'll all over it haha

    Thinking some reloading or grouping issue if its not shot out is likely the case.

    True, but I cant really be rooted trying to sell it piece by piece, I'd have to sell the .270 to fund it. Just want a good long range shooter.

    You reckon? They're $1285 new and I woulda thought with a custom barrel alone it'd jack it up a bit, not to mention dies and 30mm optilocks as well...

    That would be the idea in the end, but as a gradual process, want something I can shoot with till I get on top of the moutain of debt I'm in at the moment

    Resale on customs seems pretty poor going off my limited experience. .. if its exactly what you want its certainly a good deal

    I take it, it is in Aussie ?

    It shouldn't take long to sell, plenty of big rifles in Aussie.

    Without a brake it would be fairly punishing, another reason it would be cheap....

    It is possible it doesn't shoot that well, the Tikka recoil management system is pretty average for such a heavy recoiling calibre, another reason it would be cheap.

    Buy it turn it into a single shot Edge, put a decent brake on it & you might be GTG......? or just wait & build one on a 700.....

    Very true Greg, we do have a sickness with them.

    If I got it I'd be braking it and putting on a limbsaver. would love it to be an Edge one day.

    Just depends I guess, left a message and havent heard back, probably already gone!

    A Limbsaver is a given

    You guys have plenty of big animals to go with your big rifles Mate

    I sell plenty of brakes over there
