It’s a sad day for me but I bought this off here probably 10-11 years ago or so for my son for his first rifle.

He has outgrown it and looking to buy something else.

It’s about as clean as one could come and shoots 1” groups all day

$625 and that’ll be firm or I’ll buy it from him, no trades and no shipping

.223, comes w Nikon Prostaff 3x9 and mag

Decatur, Tx

There is absolutely no reason to let dogs be dogs.

$1,200 dollars on a vet bill? Guessing here I just don’t get it. So glad I ran over my last dog and didn’t replace her.

Sorry guys, I just can’t let it go

I’d have sold it if anybody spoke up in that time prior to this post

I’ll buy it from him

Sorry but please delete, again I just can’t.

My gut was against it, he was in favor of it

He has borrowed my stuff for over a year and wanted to move it

Guess Ill buy this one twice but this time he can have it back on my deathbed lol

Procraft05.. You made a great decision not to sell the 22-250 very hard to beat the 788 and not easy to come by... be sure and buy it tho... guns to a lot of kids nowdays are nothing more than just game money etc...just saying...Shadowman...


YOU SNOOZE-YOU LOOSE!!

Is that an original stock? I've had a couple, and seen a few others. None of them had this finish. Great shooters, and good call on the life line you threw to keep it in the family.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Yes, its original

I sanded off that ugly finish they come with

Nice, I didn't like the cheap gloss on the ones I had.
