    I found this little gem on the used rack at a local outfitter yesterday. 1980 ZKK-601 with the Zeiss ZF4.S 4x30. Mint, hardly a mark on it, set trigger, .308win. They said it was a safe queen that someone had traded in, and they wanted $350 for what you see here. I couldn’t fill out the paperwork fast enough.

    Jwood1284, you should be arrested for theft, or maybe grand larceny. All joking aside, "finds" like that don't come around too often. Where is that store located???

    Nichols Outfitters - Birmingham, AL. They have a relatively small used gun rack, but being a high end store, they get interesting trades every now and then. I was expecting it to be upwards of $600, but it wasn’t...

    Let's put it this way, you paid for the scope and got the rifle for free. $600.00 who are you kidding. $900 - a grand would have been more like it.

    Nice buy! I bought a CZ Safari magnum in 416 Rigby once oit of a gunstore that probably never sold anything bigger than 30-06. Got two boxes of federal premium with it for a bit over 600 bucks! A guy feels pretty criminal when you pull something like that off!

    Throw in a 3-position M70 style wing safety and you are there.
    Except for that little bit about a 284W...;)
