Exactly why I was asking him if the rifle was in truly new condition. It had been for sale for well over a year. For all I know it's been on his gun rack getting finger banged by every customer who walks through the place for over a year. Been there done that!
His website is pretty clunky is probably why it’s been for sale so long. But a friend of mine bought one of his shotguns that have been regulated for slugs and that thing is a killer

I guess three hots and a cot won't be much worse than my recent hospital stay. Where do I turn myself in Mr. GRAMMAR POLICE!? Haha!
Wow! In 12 minutes from your post, Stoppelman was on you like a cheap suit! He almost got me yesterday morning, but in a panic I corrected my snafu. He’s good!

Funny thing is that he was also wrong. He said "THREAD is the initial *starting* post.", in reality in forums etc.. the starting post is called OP which stands for "original post". I'll leave the correct definition of "thread" to those that are really pedantic.

Well, here is the definition of thread then, comes up the moment you search for "thread".

..."a theme or characteristic, typically forming one of several, running throughout a situation or piece of writing.""

Perhaps work on your Google-Fu? .:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Ultimate thread derail. Discussing definition of thread. ;)

And who doesnt?! I reckon everyone who felt the need to post on this has the same problem right? Maybe we should give it a rest.

That guy gave me some sh*t on another site because I was looking to buy FN Supreme bottom metal. Said it would look like any other old Browning or something like that. It’s my rifle. I’ll put whatever bottom metal on it that I like.

Actually, it’s Mom’s rifle. She surprised the hell out of me when she said wants to go deer hunting. She’s 73. She’s getting a Mauser built just for her.

The fine art of sarcasm is lost on some people. Honestly, by asking if it "still" is in new condition, you suggest he may not be a careful individual and may have damaged the rifle. Some people are sensitive to such suggestions and you can trigger that type of response through an unfortunate choice of words.

Simply asking " "I see it is advertised as like new. Can you advise of any wear that may have occured or anything that has changed since you listed it?" You increase the odds off getting your answer but some people are just wound a little tighter than others. You never know.

I have purchased ammo from the guy and have had no issues whatsoever.

Also, the owner could have shot the rifle, and it's no longer as new. :)

I have learned a lot about salesmanship from gun shops. Mostly on not to do ever.

My local gun shop (LGS) in Australia (2010-2013) had a lot of friends that worked there, and those friends were absolutely shit at customer service.

Guy walks in.

My friend says "G'day, how going? What can I get for you".

The guy says "yep Mate, I want a 22 Earsplittingloudenboomer Exress Weatherby Magnum" (or insert any popular cartridge of the day 270 WSM, 6.5 Creedmoor, 308, whatever".

My friend says "that is a stupid cartridge, what are you using it for".

Guy says "sambar and pigs".

My friend says " you need a 340 Weatherby (or something else nonsensical for average blokes".

Guy says again "do you have a 22 ESPLBEWM?".

My friend says " yeah, but it's in a Howa and they are shit".

Guy says " OK, I'll take one".

My friend says " I can order you a Sako?"

Guy says, I'll go across town and walks out the door.

This is the same conversation I have had in 1000's of other gunshops all my life. I don't understand how 99% of them are in business.

This rifle has been listed for sale for over a year at least. He has a gun shop, so for all I know it's been on his gun rack being fondled by ever customer that walks through the door. And as you know, every time most people pick a rifle up, they have to work the bolt vigorously and dry fire for good measure. Would you consider a rifle in "new condition" if that was indeed the case? Although it may be unfired, it could still be far from new condition. That was my only reason for asking.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
