    I see ended actions show new old stock in the 2500 range accessorized with 2 scopes 2700 used 1800-2200 usually a reasonable indicator ........on the other hand the truth is they are worthless so just send it to me and I'll take care of it :)

    No i dont have pic abilities, sorry.
    Its a new rifle. my best freind bought the thing back in the 90s, and stuck it in his gun safe, and never fired it. I have the scope, carrying case, 2 mags, and he said he's got the rest of the stuff that came with it new. but has to dig it out after his recent move. Which is how i aquirred it. By helping him move. I'd really like to take it out and shoot it, but i think i'd better wait and see what the thing is worth. What actually amazed me is that it actually has a pretty clean trigger in it. Smooth aside from the amount of travel, its got to be a nice shooter. But thats what its all about. HUH?

    Here is an example of the rifle on the other side.

    The gun you have is chambered in 7.62x54R. The russians have developed a special round for it, 7n1 which is somewhat rare. It will shoot the standard 54R, just will do better with the match 7n1.

    That was a pretty good pay day for helpin your buddy move.[8D]
