  1. And this post would be just awesome if money was no object and you could afford to blow 1300 bucks on a .30-06.

    How is this news and not an advertisement or a review? Have y’all even shot this rifle in the picture? Gone hunting with it? Or are you like me who has to hunt on a budget and 1300 bucks for a new rifle is just a little too much to pay when other rifles are easier and cheaper to find.

    Who cares about how pretty it looks – can it put lead on a target accurately and without fouling or jamming, and can it do so and put down the target – I know a lot of that depends on the hunter – but give me a rusty, ugly, sh1t-bucket of a rifle that can put shots on target without fouling or jamming over a 1300 dollar brand new Model 70 any day.

    Do you know how many seasons worth of game I’d have to shoot in order for this rifle to pay for itself? Sheesh.

    unfortunetly we have not fired this rifle, we merely received the press release. My personal rifle is an original 1955 Mosin Nagant that I purchased for 39.99 on sale. I personally agree with you on the pricing.
