Snagged another great deal
 
My buddy that owns the local gun shop came by the house a couple days ago,to return my dolly that he borrowed to move a safe.
He said-Hey,I got another Savage for you. I said-Thanks,Like I need another one.
Anyway,he said someone brought in a Savage 12 FLV in .308,and he bought it.He knows I shoot Left Handed,and usually will buy any that come his way.

The 12 FLV is a 26"heavy barreled,polished blued finish,with a LH action,and the Accutrigger.It also has a synthetic stock,but it is just a throw a way piece of plastic,they are very flimsy,and not very stable to shoot off of with a bipod.I always replace them with an aftermarket stock.

I went to the shop and picked it up today,It also had a Bushnell Banner 3x9 scope,with Weaver rings and 2 pc bases on it.
I took the scope and rings off at the shop and sold them to a customer there for $20.
This rifle hasn't been shot much,it looks brand new,with an excellent bore.The bolt face is spotless.

When I got it home,I took it out of the stock and cleaned everything up,adjusted the Accutrigger to my liking,and then ran a few patches thru the bore.A couple wet ones,and around 8 dry,it was clean.
I then mounted a Redfield 3-12x44 scope,and some Leupold rings that I had in a box out in the shop,and bore sighted the scope.

Paid $360 for it -$20 for selling the scope = $340 for what should be a Tack driving rifle.

Looks great, but the bolt is on the wrong side. :o

He just reversed the negative so we would think he's left handed!

Ah, gotcha. That makes sense, because nobody would buy a rifle with the bolt on the wrong side.

No,I'll have to get another Sightron SIII for it.I really like those scopes.

And for the rest of you Clowns-I kinda like having different sided guns.They shoot better!
