Stealing the FS ad from when I purchased this rifle during the past summer.

I have been a bad boy and my boss has slapped me around and asked me (lol) to move a gun or two to make up for all the stuff I have purchased recently (actually, I think she knows how much the BVC taxidermy bill is going to be!).

Ray Montgomery in Grand Junction, Colorado built this rifle in 2006.

Specifications are as follows:

Rem 700 Action, Trued by Ray, with custom shroud.
Shilen #5 Chrome Moly Barrel, cut to 22" with protected crown
Remington Trigger w/trigger job (trigger is crisp)
McMillan Sporter pattern stock - Dark Green/White, 13 11/16" LOP w/ 1" Decelerator
Williams Steel 1-Pc Bottom Metal
Action, barrel, and bottom metal matte blue finish by Ray
Caliber marking is very nicely engraved by Ray
Rifle weight with bases is 7.85 lbs. 9.15 lbs with 1-6x Trijicon mounted

I'll include a set of Hornady FL dies

I have only function fired this rifle (about 30 rounds...PO reportedly put about 100 through it). It is very comfortable and manageable. The Taylor is a very efficient cartridge with relatively low powder charges for the power level achieved.

$1,375 plus actual shipping and insurance, with dies and two piece scope bases. I also have 350 various Barnes, Nosler, North Fork and Speer bullets that are available to the buyer at a good price.

Rifle currently wears a Trijicon 1-6X Accupoint which could be included for an additional $800.

I ship from individual to FFL.

All in all, a pretty compact, powerful and sexy rifle.

Let me know if I left anything out. I have not accuracy tested the rifle, but the PO reports sub MOA with his favorite load. I only shot it at 50 yards and it stacks them at that range, as you might expect from a Shilen- barreled and trued M700.

Tarbe,
Again, a beautiful rifle at a very fair price. Someone here should buy this before Toby 458 sees this ad! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Nice rifle! But I just added a Ruger No1 Stainless 458 Lott and Winchester Classic stainless 375 H&H to the fold a couple weeks ago. My bank account needs a bandaid!

And what is smack dab right in the middle between the 375 and the 458?

Yup, the 416. :LOL:

Hell son, I will bring it to Dallas and hand deliver it to you, and you can take 6 months to pay!

Except knowing you, you would sell it before you even paid me for it!!!

And yes, I am the pot calling the kettle black! I have only had this rifle 3 months and I have bought 4 other rifles since.

You guys and your gun buying! You both should really be more responsible!

I currently have a Ruger No1 458 Lott, Winchester 70 458 Win., Winchester 70 375 H&H, Zastava 9.3x62 and a Beretta Highlander 12 Ga that I haven't even shot yet! Of course, the Zastava is already sold, pending funds, but who's counting?

Yes, you clearly need a 416. And the Taylor puts you in a very select and well-regarded cohort of riflemen with refined taste and common sense.

:)

Which is why I have to sell it...I have neither refined taste or common sense!

I believe the 416 Taylor also makes one irresistible to women!

Wow, nice looking rifle! I see why you are selling it though. A little flashy for a Missouri lever gun boy like you :ROFLMAO:
Ray does good work, I’m sure it’s a solid rifle and a good shooter.

I already own a 416, and don't need any more ladies to spend my hunting funds!
As they say, I’ve spent most of my money on women, booze and guns then wasted the rest

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
