I saw one at Cabela's in Buda for $1,299.00. I bet they'd ship go the Allen store.

Better Look and hold one before you buy. Very heavy gun, may need to have someone to carry it. There are a lot of bolt rifles out there that are cheaper and will do a great job. Know a guy that bought one for 1200 and is not pleased with it. In My opinion buy something different and put your money on mounting a real good scope on it.

Birddog60, its not for me. I told my buddy the same thing and I agree about the scope. He's hard headed so he can make up his own mind. I told him I would find him one in .308 and did on GB but he didn't want to pay the $200 over MSRP cost.

The one at the Buda store is in .243

I work at the Ft. Worth store. We gotten a couple in but they were .243's. The buyers have an aversion to sending anything in the 6.5 caliber to Texas. In the year and a half that I've worked the gun counter we have only received one, an Xbolt in 6.5 Creedmoor. That was a couple of weeks ago. It had a muzzle brake. Why would you need a muzzle brake on a 6.5 CM?

Lots of shooters want to be their own spotter and a break or suppresser make that much easier.

Good luck. I'm currently #39 on the list.

Yes they are heavy. I truthfully don't know that the gun does anything better than any other bolt action. It's a nice looking machine, though.
