    I am posting this rifle here first and see if there are any members interested first.
    This is a great rifle and shoots great, Why am I selling it? To fund another hunt and new Double Rifle as even I can’t convince myself that I need two 470’s.
    I came across this rifle from the original owner that had fired 6 rounds through it and I bought it right so I am passing it on at a good price. I have the Box and all paperwork that came with it. I have shot a total of 60 +/- rounds through it since I’ve had it. I will include a box of Hornady with it to get you started. Price: 7200.00

    Thanks for looking!
    Cheers,
    Cody

    I had to take two boxes with it! They do shoot well out of it though. Good for jack rabbits and jealous husbands I guess! Lol

    I have fired this rifle and even I can hit with it!

    It is a shooter, for sure. It seems to shoot everything well...not picky at all. Factory loads and handloads from 2100 to 2225 fps all regulated well.

    If you have fears of getting a double to shoot, you need not have any fear of this one.

    In the spirit of Cody's "Pay it Forward" thread, I will send 40 once-fired .470 empties and 100 Barnes 500gr Banded Solids to the buyer of this rifle - free.

    One of the few things that is positive about being broke at the moment is at least I dont have to worry about spending money I shouldn’t on this beautiful rifle. Wonderful rifle someone is going to get a hellava deal.

    OK, since I don't reload, I don't get the joke about the 200 banded solids....so what is it?
