No interest so far. I assumed I would be beating people off with a stick at this point. What did I do wrong here? Bad sales pitch? Price too low? No left handers out there? Feedback appreciated.

I'm a lefty, but I already have a Ruger Alaskan 375R ....
Price seems right for this!

I’ve got a right handed Hawkeye.375 Ruger, great dependable accurate rifle. If I was a lefty looking for a rifle in a medium bore I’d jump on it. However, it’s difficult to find brass and loaded ammo for it especially now unless you know where to look. There’s also the stories of “there is no .375 Ruger to be found in the entire continent of Africa”…….. which isn’t true but if it’s said enough times it becomes the truth…… not trying to rain on your parade. It’s a good rifle and a fair price. Hope you can sell it.

It’s also timing. Two weeks ago I’d have snapped it up because I did buy one off Gun Brokers. You are in the heart of “I want to go to Africa”. You’ve got Houston Safari Club, Dallas Safari Club, and a bunch of SCI chapters. Are you a member of any of them? Might see if any have a way to make your sale known. Good luck.

Thank you for your responses. I was concerned there was something in the add or my profile that was raising a flag. Something I could correct. I am going to presume that in time this add and the right person will cross paths. Again, thanks for the good feedback.

I have two shotguns I would be willing to trade if you're interested. Got a Winchester model 12 and a Browning Auto 5. PM for details if you're interested

I had hoped this rifle would find a home on this forum. I have receive no legitimate offers to purchase so I will post on alternate forums. Thanks for all the feedback.

Well poop. I need a LH donor for a 416 Ruger. This would have been perfect, but I just bought a new 9.3x62 for my son. And to top it off, we're practically neighbors. I live about a mile from the FBCSO off of Richmond Parkway.

Well it certainly is still for sale. That has not changed. I am just following AH rules and providing notice that it will be listed elsewhere as well.

Just bad timing for me is all. A bear hunt in Idaho with one son coming up in October, and a new gun and glass for my other son. I'm just tapped out for now.

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.

Hey There,

Im looking to book my first African Safari for 2024 for my 40th birthday. I've never hunted Africa before, but was going to head to SA with my wife for a week then see her off and then stay and hunt.

Saw your safari come up as a recommendation and wondering if you had any time to chat.
Thanks!
Steve
