    I'm pretty happy with mine in 7mm Rem mag and the price have come down a lot in the last year.

    What do you want the gunsmith to do to it?

    Thanks Hendrik
    If i bought a second hand one , and at some point it needed re barrel can this be done easily?
    Not sure if it was this rifle that barrel was fixed by being pressed in under heat.
    How would re bedding go with the big tang safety and unusual stock.
    you don't see them in shops and very few second hand. why?
    I remember them getting good reviews years ago in kiwi hunting mags

    As far as I know the SBS barrel is threaded into the receiver, so you should have no issues re barreling it.
    The older SSGs were pressed in - which is probably where the rumor started...

    I dropped mine into a Boyds stock, which required a minor amount of fitting and it was bedded and still shoots the 162amax into 1/2 moa all day long.

    I'm not sure why they are not popular, could be the fact that the are heavier than a sako or tikka but they are a great rifle and at the current price they are great value imo
