Evening all,

works a bit quiet at the moment, was looking at purchasing a cheap rifle that has issues that owner cannot be bothered or find justifiable to fix to do up.
Preferably bolt action, however ill consider anything.

please if you know of anything drop a comment below with the issues and your price and ill gladly consider it!

Cheers,

Hunter

Just be careful you don't end up with an unfixable problem like a stuffed barrel or missing/broken parts that are unavailable.

depending on whats wrong with the barrel, I can fix. I have access to suitable lathe and mill, depending on the part could potentially replicate. But yeah hopefully I can gauge how bad the rifle is and whether its in my capabilities to repair.

Some nice Mauser rifles for sale on the other forum I think a nice 7x57 is still unsold.
  

Still out here in the wind and rain, look a little older but I feel no pain...

I have a Remington 742 in 30-06 it has been converted to a pump and all is fairly fine and dandy, except the extractor is a bit dicey and some of the fitments are not quite sellable. If you have a mill and a lathe and choose to return it to a semi-auto then a new gas block could be made.
If it was myself it would be a screw on part like the Mini Ruger.
I have two fore ends, the original fore -stock, stock nut spring.
And so on and so forth.
The rifle as it stands can be stripped in a minute or so and thus the chamber can be cleaned, it took a fair bit of mucking around to get it to reassemble to the same point of impact.
I do not want to part with it unless I can replace it with another project firearm, pistols (C), or some thing interesting.
If I had a lathe and mill I would modify the extractor, perhaps make it like the colt 45 auto or the Sako bolt action rifle.
This rifle is good for one to two inch groups.

Hey mate, apologies but I have nothing I could offer in regards to your request above. Did you have a cash price, and if so, how much? Do you reckon you could send through some photos?

Cheers,

Hunter

No to good at the photo bit, can send a photo by ordinary email out side of this forum. As to value I have no idea, but say = to Rossi 92, or a s@w 455 or a cash offer on sight.
I do not want someone to go from here disappointed, or even worse to receive it and wish the deal was not done.

i have a sako a7 in 260rem, i had a 243 rebarrelled with a truflite, 20inch with gunworks suppressor, has a boyd laminated stock, it shoots very very well, i wanted to get a lighter stock for it, however the cost i thought was too much, and the balance i thought would be too out of whack, so i bought a new 6.5 creedmoor instead, i have a rough idea what the a7 is worth,  if your not keen on it ill advertise it on trade me before too long

Cheers for the offer mate, however I was hoping for a fixer-upper.
