I think this will be the best place to reach out based off my reading on here. I am looking for a project rifle to practice refinishing the stock and potentially re-blueing. I have recently found out from refinishing one of my pre-64 stocks that I enjoy the process and would like to keep doing it. If anybody has a rifle sitting in their safe that functions just fine but needs some love on the outside please let me know. Don’t really have much preference in caliber, just as long as it’s not something super obscure. Thanks.
I have a Husqvarna in 8x57 that fits that bill. Even has a scope on it. $650 shipped. If you're interested PM me a cell number and I will send you pictures. It's even pretty accurate with very old Norma factory ammo.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
