I've got my eye on a 76 in 375 H&H. It's like new with a Swarovski Habicht 1.25-4×24 scope in Talley QD rings. It was built in 2003. Test fired only. Beautiful wood. $5750.00 shipped. Seems like a great deal.Hendershot's still has a nice supply...3 of them in DG calibers.
I took a serious look at a used one there years ago.
I already had my CZ back from AHR so wasn't really in the market at the time.
It was a pre-2009 rifle (ie before Remington) and I should have picked it up.
It had two stocks that the original owner had wanted.
The wood was amazing and the synthetic was really nice as well.
I believe it was chambered in 416RIGBY, but I can't be certain.
IMO, they were a better company before Remington.
It would be a shame if the poor management of Rem caused them to be cut.

Yea, I'm trying to talk myself into needing it. Haha! I like the Talley mounts ok. Not sure about the scope though. I'm not crazy about 30mm scopes, as they are overly heavy for a 1.25-4 scope. But I'm sure it's a good scope.Don't be sleeping on it...could miss out while you are typing.
However I do believe you should upgrade the rings to EAW or Recknage rings.
That definitely sounds bad. The rifle I'm looking at is 17 years old. However, I've almost talked myself out of it now. I just don't need a third 375, and really don't want to sell either of my current 375's due to them having a lot of interesting animals/hunts to their credit. If only it was a 404....What's next for Dakota Arms?
I called them 4 times recently leaving 4 different voicemails indicating I was interested in buying product on hand. If you're a company clawing for survival this is literally the very best phone call you can receive. Someone is willing to pay you immediately in full for a product already in inventory that may have been a demo, a return, or a blemished product. When you have huge free cash flow problems and your parent just went bankrupt, you jump at these opportunities.
Lack of response indicates to me that they've already checked out mentally. This was the same symptom I noted in prior years as they were going through their many bankruptcies.
I think anyone that puts a deposit on a custom gun right now is making a huge mistake. Yes, they just went bankrupt so they can't take your money and go bankrupt again. However, they can delay-delay-delay on completing your product and then file for bankruptcy once more as soon as the statue permits. Or, a judge can deem them insolvent and force them to stop trading.
If its not in stock, I'd walk.
