    This is 1 of 4 of "The Nearly Perfect Rifle Battery" of which only 100 sets were made. I am not sure that means anything to anyone as it means little too me.
    I bought this with an incorrect assumption it had a forward recoil lug and would rather get rid of this and purchase a rifle with the barrel lug. It is a Super Grade with beautiful wood and bluing. I need $1150 out of it or would consider trading for a Winchester Safari 375 H&H.

    I forgot to mention the rifle is new unfired unless it was fired at the factory.

    Gorgeous M70!!!

    Were I you I’d definitely keep the rifle and have a gunsmith fit a front recoil lug. The rifle could be glass bedded at the same time.

    Hi Ryan,
    Glad you sold the rifle, your better off with a barrel banded mount for your sling. How's Bill doing?
    Cheers, Gordon

    A MidwayUSA Foundation Promo- that's one of Larry Potterfield's deals. Looks like a nice rifle and the price was certainly right!

    For whoever got it- won't be too hard to add a front recoil lug then glass bed the whole works.

    I received the rifle Tuesday and it is absolutely beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice.

    Bill is great. I ended up buying what I should've bought in the first place. It is not as pretty but it will be easier to handle when I scratch it.
