You folks do realize that this thread started more than three years ago and that the seller hasn't signed in for close to two years ago????

Here's my take. I agree a standing sight would be a nice addition. A standing/folding sight is quite reasonable, perhaps $150. The cost is in hand filing and regulating it. That costs a fortune. By virtue of it having the original folding sights, all the regulation data can be calculated off of that, making a new sight swap-out a breeze. $250 total job, not $800 job.

Its a controlled round feed massive stopping rifle, made by winchester, in a good caliber for that purpose, for reasonable money. It'll sell fast.

I may be wrong, but I don’t think this rifle is crf.

Definitely is. See the Mauser claw extractor on the bolt?

You may be right but it doesn’t look like it has a claw extractor to me.

I think it is CRF because I don't think Win made claw extractors that weren't. But FWIW original Ruger 77's had claw extractor and were push feeds...............FWB

There may be an extractor there. Very difficult to tell from the pics. If there is it is jeweled the same as the bolt. Very unusual if that is the case.

1000% it’s CRF. Claw extractor is plain as day. Yes, it’s jeweled.

Of course it's a CRF- but the real question is: has anyone talked with Mr Clint about the rifle?

Yes. I've taken both Stat 530 AND watched Dumb and Dumber....."There's a Chance!" I was hoping he went into a deep sleep akin to Rip Van Winkle and awoke at the precise moment of our inquiries...What's the worst that could happen? Nothing? Completely worth the typing...Beautiful gun. What if the Buyer sees our posts and finds himself in the midst of marital discourse needing ducats? ;) Don't worry.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
