BUY SOMETHING ELSE!
There is also a lot of good used rifles out there for a good price.
Most guys buy them on a whim sight them in and they become closet or safe guns. If the bolt locking lugs still have the original finish on the locking lugs and if the bore is good as they normally always are you have a good deal. For example, in the recent past I purchased a Model 700 Remington with Scope at a local gun show for $450.00. That is not a rare occasion. There usually are many similar deals at the shows and most of the time the dealers have taken them in on trade and want to move the inventory and the dollars! Just a hint. I also saw a Parker Hale Deluxe rifle also for $500 with a scope but it was in a caliber that I already have. The also are excellent rifles.
