a few years back i purchased this rifle from its original owner for $11,000.00. unfortunately i found the rifle had trouble with damaging its spent brass. this hadnt been a problem or even worth noticing by the original owner since he didnt hand load but it was a problem for me. i sent the rifle back to Searcy who hung on to the rifle for 2 years before finally sending the rifle back to me... with more problems then i sent it to him with! as it sits now the rifle is what id call a "fixer" or a gun in need of either repairs or perhaps a new set of barrels. im not willing to put any more money into this gun so im going to take a massive hit and part with the gun for cheap. issues: the initial problem of the gun bending brass is still there however it does seem to be much less noticeable then it was before sending it back to Searcy. a new problem with the gun is that its ejectors no longer work. a load that was regulating before Searcy "reworked" the gun, no longer seems to regulate so i cannot guarantee regulation. lastly the gun does have some minor surface rust on the barrels thats so minor it doesnt show up in the pictures. this gun is being sold "as is" for $6000 + S/H to a licensed FFL. the wood and action are beautiful and with some work this could be a fantastic double rifle. more pictures can be taken on request. barrels are 24" the gun weighs 10 lb 5 oz LOP is 14 7/8"
