Today I enquired about a Kimber Caprivi in 458 Lott with a seller on Gunsinternational.com. They go by the name of doublegunhq with the company name Whitworth Arms LLC.
They have had this rifle listed for quite a long time in "As New Condition". And they are asking retail price for it.
So I simply asked them the question " is this rifle still in "as new condition" with no flaws? Perfectly like new? And this is the response I was given.
I can't imagine a busines owner responding to a question in this manner....
So if you see anything they are offering for sale, I'd be very leery to do business with them.

That might have been an honest answer. People do weird stuff.

Thats odd, I have asked them about goods and services over the years and never got an answer like that one! Maybe having a bad hair day.

Maybe the email went through to the wrong person? Who knows? I actually thought the answer was quite funny, but I still couldn't do business with such an asshole if that's how he talks to his potential customers. Oh well. It's not like I need another rifle anyway!

Sounds like a real horse trader....I would move on and leave that one where it lies.

I think you are forgetting the agreement you had a sign to buy a Blaser R8 anyway. “Thou shalt not buy any rifles other than Blaser”
The R8 purchase has already been fulfilled grasshopper! Now it's time to move on to other items of interest! Haha!

Toby, did you look at the photos of that rifle, it is new old stock. $2975 I believe. Unless you have looked into it in detail, you need to look again. Looks same as new to me.

Come on Toby, its hilarious! "Is it new, new new, or new new new?" He could have just said something boring like "yes".

So get back to him and say, " ok, in that case Ill take it for 10% discount, and we share a beer"

The reason I asked was, I purchased a Kimber exactly like this in the past that was marked "as new" and the pictures looked great. But when I received the rifle, it had a cracked forearm and the action looked like it had been cycled 500 times, with a bunch of the bluing worn off the feed rails. So, If I'm going to pay new prices, I want a new rifle! These rifles routinely sold for around $2750 the last time Kimber made a run of 458s, so he's not exactly cheap on it. Oh well. I don't really need it anyway.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
