Cabela's has started selling these guns. There was one new in the gun library and I was able to handle it. I thought I'd share. It's not everyday you can see and handle these guns.

$4699.99

Of that, $2000.00 is the price of GA engraved on it.

I saw that one when I was up there on Sat. If I'm gonna drop $4600 on a rifle it better be exact specs I want. You can have GA build one to your specs for about the same.

I also held the new Seekins Havak while I was up there. It was a bit of a let down. Pretty spiral fluting but I wasn't that impressed by the action

I tend to agree that itís a bit overpriced. The fit&finish and the trigger were really nice, but for me it doesnít have any features that would justify that price. The only time I spent that much was for AIAT folding rifle and the bonded chassis, quick change barrel and to hell and back reliability (ha haÖthatís from Sig's literature) were some unique features that justified the price I paid.

I also saw the Seekins Havak. Itís more of a hunting setup with a thinner barrel, so I didn't even ask to check it out. What is it about the action that you didnít like?

Name, reputation and 3/8 moa guarantee are what you're paying for. It's what the pros use. I've shot one and it doesn't really get any better. But for the price its expected.

I guess I was expecting the action on the Seekins to be smoother and the rifle to have a little more weight to it. I'd consider one for hunting but for target shooting just wasn't all that impressed.

Yup, thatís the price you need to pay for the big players. You have others that charge way more. A TacOps will be more expensive and they use a Remington action. Nonetheless, I was pretty happy and excited to see Cabelaís carrying these brands.

As for the Havak action, it seems itís a little rough out of the box but will get much better with use.

I will never understand dropping that much money on a rifle.. or any firearm.

Parts cost alone on that rifle is over $3000. Premium parts cost premium money.

I kinda kick myself now for not getting a custom action when I built my rifles.

I never regretted the custom actions I used for past projects, Borden and Stiller.

A custom is expensive, but every one I had built, ALWAYS impressed. And the ones with custom actions, well, like the Jewell triggers, not much compares. When one uses all the best parts, and uses a good Smith to assemble, you have a rifle that should shoot better than the owner can typically hold. They are precise, and consistent, and you can feel that quality, every shot and cycle of the action.

Accurate rifles will spoil one and reset expectations. Nothing like shooting cloverleafs, at 100, 200, and yes even 300 smile

Agree with most above, for the price you can build 2 or 3 perfectly good 1/2 MOA rifles. They may not be as pretty but will shoot and function just fine. Would only consider something like this if I got into the bench or rail game. P_102

C'mon you know the parts are expensive. At retail the parts on that are about $3k plus shipping. Some of the premium guys charges over $500 for chambering and barrel threading alone.

And Cabelas needs to make a buck as well.
Have had GAP build me a rifle with Defiance action, Bart barrel, Jewell and McM edge....parts were right at $2600...paid only $1000 for the logo smile which included chambering, fitting, bedding, ceracoat, threaded muzzle, etc.

I should've said $1500 for the GA on the side.

Point being, a rifle can be built with all the same parts, except the same action, and that rifle perform exactly the same.

But not everyone knows how to gather all the parts themselves, and bring a box of parts to a great gunsmith. I get that.
