My apologies to the moderators if they don't like where I post this, but I wanted to ensure it was seen. This is not my rifle but is in a local auction near where I live.

Finally got 2 bids, sitting at $1050 with 7 days left. I expect it will attract more bids, but who knows, it could be a bargain. For those interested, if you go into the main auction, lots of reloading supplies to include primers.
