Mort Hill it was really a pleasure to meet you. and hear about your hunts. I look forward to keeping in touch. Hoping that you feel you got a fair price on a rifle that you can go out and enjoy. Let her rip!
Fastrig - here is your solution. Excellent mix of quality PH and price.
Thanks for that and I do not disagree. I absolutely know the wood is off-putting to some. I just need to get a price for it between what I paid and the "will be the cheapest piece of art on my wall" number. I think, given the action and the barrel, there is a "parts value" that is perhaps...
So, if this is your life's work, are you happy about going out like this or pissed that it finally bit you / ironic. I am sure his loved ones feel differently than he would have before it was too late.
Jump on the 458 I have for sale. Will make a killer platform for a rebuild or shoot as is (which is basically unfired). I may be one of the weird ones that think just about nothing is worth more than 2/3 of what someone pays for it when you don't have a warranty
