    Is this the "wee beastie in question"

    YUp, that is a link. (Tinyurl has excelled itself)

    Googling "Field King Carbine" brings up "lotsa" posts.
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Bit confusing. There is such a thing as a 308 Norma Magnum, and a 300 Winchester Magnum, but 308winmag is either new or a screwup.
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.

    Off the top of my head I thought field kings were the predecessor to the mossburg range of rifles or at least they were braught out by mossburg. Except they used actual stainless steel and by all accounts these rifles were slick well shooting rifles punching well above there weight.

    So if i paid him the 500 he is askin plus he said he has a bushnel scope he will throw in aswell,am i getting a good deal??genuine reason for trade as he just scored himself a new .243 package
    In saying that it has a few scuffs on barell and needs a good clean but it is also a nice short rifle so next thing on list would be a supressor

    The field king design was bought from Charter Arms by Mossberg which is now the ATR100 my first modern High power rifle was a charter arms field king in .243 was a good rifle too.
