You can buy a brand new one for $1200
I would agree. The value is just not there.
I'd rather go w/ this. I would also look for a 1:10 twist barrel. http://www.snipercentral.com/howa.htm
This is a great entry level rifle. http://www.snipercentral.com/scriflepackagedetails.phtml?packageid=1
This is my older Howa HB .308 22" barrel, 1:10 twist. Bought it for $495.00 years ago. Pillar bedded. Bolt is 1 piece construction (as opposed to Remingtons 3 piece), Flat bottom receiver (more ridged/strong). It will shoot 1 ragged 5 Hole group at 100 yards even w/ surplus 7.62x51. Wears a sightron SII 3-12x42mmAO. Same as big sky w/ standard reticule.
