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.
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.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????
