In the price range your talking about..you can buy something really nice. You can get a NEW Heym for about 18,000 and I'm working on a Searcy now. If the serial number of the Searcy starts with BL then it's one of his later CNC machined receivers. The place I shop with has a used Heym .470 NE in excellent like new condition. I talked to Butch and you don't have to worry about his guns. His warranty best in the business and located in US.
