Couple of questions. Do you know the actual weight of the rifle? Also, does it hold 4 rounds in the magazine?
You simply can not resist can you...

Why is it that so many Dakotas sit unfired in safes, before moving to another owner to do the same thing.

Does the spirit of Don Allen haunt people into being scared to use them?

I have seen a lot of NIB Dakotas in a variety of calibers, and some of them are 25 years old and nary a mark on them.

Doesn’t strike me as a plinking cartridge as much as it does a specialized hunting caliber. If that particular hunt doesn’t come to fruition, I see no reason to fire the rifle otherwise. I have a m70 that was unfirwd for 2 years before I sighted it in, has remained unfired since I sighted it in. I have a 7-08 that’s been only been sighted in as well.

Well, I happened across this rifle recently and was starting to plan a 2022 hunt. My plan was to sell my M70 Super Express and keep this. Unfortunately, life says its not quite meant to be for the rifle and most likely the hunt, depending on how the rest of the year goes. I don't "have" to sell it, I'd just rather have a little more liquidity in the next 6 months. Now to the rifle.

Rifle was built in 2001. Unfired I'm told by the original owner and now unfired by me. The bolt face look to back this up but I can't verify 100% so we'll say extremely low round count. Overall the rifle is in 98-99% condition, it did manage to pick up some dings over the last 20 years. You can see most of them in the photos. I'm happy to send pictures of anything I can find to serious parties but everything is minor.

Gun specs:

Dakota Model 76 Safari
Magnum Action
Control Round Feed / 3 position side safety / Claw extractor
375HH
XXX English Walnut
Ebony Forend Tip
Front pop-up night sight
Dakota Mounts
Talley 1in Low rings(will need to call Talley for a replacement screw)
Full wrap around forend checkering
Barrel band swivel and Ken Howell inletted stock swivel
22 LPI checkering
Stainless steel barrel
Z-Plate finish

I have the original receipt but no other paperwork. Would like 6000.00 shipped Fedex 2 Day.
While cash is prudent for me, I will listen to partial trades on Winchester M70 rifles,Sako rifles, Marlin lever actions, HK, Sig Sauer pistols, quality optics as I can easily move these items for cash.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
