Good Gun Deals This Week

"Based" in the parlance of kids these days is basically an affirmation or general positive response to someone or something--it can mean "true," "awesome," "cool," or "right/correct." It's often used when someone agrees with something someone else did or said, especially if it's something that goes against popular opinion or "proper" social conventions.

I used it here because the same segment of the population that often uses "based" also use the word "kek" a lot. Kek has become a common response similar to "lol," "haha," or "lmao" in certain younger circles and in online forums and image boards. It was not something I expected to see on this forum!
So we now have “Kek based”? LOL

Anyone looking to build a big bore, there is an Interarms magnum action NIB on GB with 6 hours left and no bids. $799 starting bid. About as cheap as you are going to find a Mauser type action these days I would think.

Not a bad plan, @Albert GRANT . Another good strategy is to buy a best grade wildcat that is deemed unsalable. These go $2000-$4000. Rebarrel, rechamber, address the bolt face, maybe $1500 to make it anything you want it to be.

Whenever I work the math on the cost of modest components to build a custom rifle, I always conclude its best to buy somebody else’s bad decisions they spent $8000-$20,000 on for pennies, then convert it into a “normal” caliber.

Likely be a bit of a lengthy search to find I would imagine, however if you had the patience, I would agree. It would certainly make a much better end product!

Hard to believe we could buy these all day for $1,000 ten years ago.
Yep. FIVE years ago a barely used CZ550 in .416 Rigby could be bought for $1k-1.2K. A used .458WM/Lott less then $1K (many for $8-900) when I bought mine. When the used AFFORDABLE CZ550 rifles in .416 Rigby are gone, the Rigby cartridge will become obscure again.

Kinda like the 404j now.
 
I think $2800 is a pretty ambitious ask, especially with the Hogsback stock. But the market will determine fair value.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
