Remy,Timex,F150,Dakota Which one doesn't belong with the others? For $10,000 I could get quite a few rifles that will at least shoot as well and I won't scream as loud if they get a ding. I'll go out in my Rolls with my Rolex compass watch, wearing my Florsheim baby's ass boots and my 100% casmir camos. Ill sit in my hut tub outside my 8000 sq ft Deer blind and shoot a Deer with my Dakota. And I will still have the nerve to call myself an outdoorsman.

Wow. I was unaware that people that can afford the nicer things in life have to have nerve to call themselves outdoorsmen. Odd perspective.

The Dakota is a finely crafted rifle and way out of my league but I dont begrudge it to anyone. If you think the high end market is only for high rollers, take a look at the glass the really good guides have on their rifles and around their neck. I have seen guides with an old beater truck and a beat up rifle wearing Steiner glass. I cant afford that glass either.

don't mind dteed he is an idiot.

If you can afford a $7k rifle that shoots 1.5" groups then by all means go for it. I don't care I just think for the money there are much better rifles out there.

I guess if I had the choice between a crisp, dependable and proven left handed action and shooting 1/2 inch tighter "groups" in a medium/large bore for close in encounters with dangerous game I would likely choose the former.

As I mentioned this was very hard to find...

I know of plenty of left handed actions.

Not sure why everyone is still arguing over this.

Update

After 7 months of waiting I finally received the Dakota. Big disappointment is all I can say. I specifically selected a piece of exquisite walnut from their inventory and what i got was at best a XX, muted grain hunk of wood.

Poor form for $7K. Now we will see what they plan to do about it.

In retrospect, $1,800 for the CZ (add some tuning) would have been the better choice....

Live and learn I guess.
