    I was considering an m12 extreme but blackwatch said the calibre I wanted wasn't available. Even tho it is listed and I would have been prepared to order and wait. To be fair they may not have understood that I would have waited (for their part they were very prompt and chased up availability very quickly and would have had another calibre there for me to try for feel and fit , just a misunderstanding I think) but never mind I may contact stager about the new m12 trail and when we might see that. Or I will just go with a different marque.
    Just to be clear ...... can't fault blackwatchs service

    Yes, very nice rifles.

    I wonder about the de-cocker and how it would compare to using a safety...?

    He did, if he's not about I will say it was very accurate and very soft shooting and had a better trigger than my Sako's .

    I had an Extreme. Problem was it was too nice to hunt with for me.... As @jakewire says, it did everything right.

    Hi Team
    We are supplied directly from Stager so the stock available at BLACK WATCH RELOADING - Black Watch Reloading is what Joel has on the shelf at Stager. What we are doing is providing shooters in the North with another option to get their mits on a M12 or a Blaser and shoulder an example before committing to a purchase.
    Please feel free to enquire further on the site.
    Cheers

    That's a good deal, if it hasn't had much work it is worth the buy now price let alone if you can get it cheaper.

    Looks good aye going by the reviews the barrel is pretty heavy 19mm ? so fluting makes sense ,looks like a great buy.. not sold on the cal though was thinking along the lines of 30-06 maybe 308 , the MAX model in 22-250 could be something special

    It has a cold-hammer forged matte-silver 20″ stainless steel fluted barrel which, along with the action are coated in a synthetic material called ilaflon. This coating is able repel anything you might get on it during a hunting trip, such as rain, snow, perspiration, blood, etc. The barrel is threaded for a moderator as standard.
