Special order only. A true heirloom piece.

Hopefully they'll set out before I give in to the urge.

Iíd love to have one, but I have one safe queen that my wife bought me to ease the pain of turning 30. I really donít need two. Although, turning 40 could be pretty rough.

I agree. IMO the 2K put in a nice pre-64 would be a much better investment. Probably a better rifle too. But I am biased in favor of the vintage stuff.

In 15 years it might be worth what you pay. To many of these special make ups out there. They rarely increase in value.

Thats a bit outrageous in regard to pricing in my opinion. Im sure its a nice rifle, but it needs to be hand fitted and smooth a silk to ask that amount. Anyone who gets one, enjoy. Its out of my price range.

I like it. Something to be said for blue steel and walnut. Thank goodness they are not offering a lefty, cause if I bought it I would use it.

I donít think itís out of line, from what I can see. Money spent on a rifle can go towards more than just group size or any other function. They arenít just tools to everyone. Iím not spending that kind of money on it, either, for reasons aforementioned, but I can easily see why someone would. If thatís what trips a personís trigger, so to speak, then itís money well spent. Their heirs will thank them for such a fine heirloom, anyway.

It's not like it's commemorating some famous military rifle. It's just a hunting gun. It's not much different than if Remington made a fancy wood-stocked 700 and then charged $2k for it. Pretty nuts IMHO.

I agree. I'm not sure I've ever seen a $2k rifle that I wouldn't rather have than this one.

This rifle would be fine at $750. I can appreciate quality and commemorating a company's history. But asking $2k for fanboys to celebrate the history of a company is a little crazy to me. To each their own - my original post was just making the point that the price seems more than a little crazy for a non-military piece that's purely celebrating a milestone for a private company.

Why on earth would anyone buy a gun just to put it in a safe and never plan to use it?

Little pricey, bet if you wait around they will come down on price. I have one of the Cabela's Exclusive Model 70 Super Grades. Rifle is nice, wood to metal fit good but not perfect. Would not have paid retail ($1700 I think) for it but they clearanced them out after Christmas couple years ago.

I am a bit ashamed to say I mounted a scope about six months later, sighted it in and has been in the safe since. Not sure why. Guess I need to dig it back out.
