    That's how it goes. Same goes for Canada and the US. I've heard prices on some stuff in Canada that astounded me...but because they're so cheap! Import regulations apparently allow some Chinese...

    Should be able to EASILY get $400 out of that. $500, maybe.
    Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

    A couple of them.
    It's small potatoes, but that front sight protector looks off as well. People throw the flaming bomb on everything they reproduce so it's something that makes me take a second...

    Agreed. At 90% condition, Iíd expect around $700 on Gunbroker.
    A local gun store would probably ask $850 and sell it after, oh, two years or so haha.

    Would love to see pictures of it!

    You're right around fair value at $600. Civilian versions go for around $300.

    By the way, this is the only gun I've owned thus far that can actually be taken apart wrong. TRUST ME. If you do...

    I actually sent him a PM when he had it listed at only $1k. I suggested he was massively underpriced.
    I'm glad I didn't just swipe it for a quick profit!

    Thanks for posting this. I think of...

    Progress!

    I'm off to buy a barrel inletting tool for the last stretch of barrel channel. The barrel is a uniform .762 through there. That $50 tool is going to save a lot of time!

    Here's my...

    That was sort of my thought too looking at my copy.
    This stock is definitely not Griffin and Howe quality though. The barrel isnít marked either.

    I will be putting stock bolts in this rifle. Reinforcement and a bit of added flash - thatís an easy decision.

    The donor is here!

    As I stated earlier, I picked this Husqvarna for a few reasons:

    The bolt handle is already configured in an attractive contour:

    Woof. Ever heard the phrase, "good from afar but far from good?"
    This was...not a good purchase. Can't win 'em all! :surrender:

    Griffin and Howe? More like Good Grief, and How!

    Nice enough to invite back to my place for a bit. Iíll post some more pics when it arrives.

    Anyone getting an SRS hit?

    I'm leaning that way myself. I'm thinking it's just Griffin and Howe "flavored."
    Still a nice looking rifle!
  16. Potential Griffin and Howe Sporter - Thoughts?

    I think I stumbled onto a legit Griffin and Howe. The cheekpiece is throwing it off a little from others I've seen. That buttpad is definitely a newer addition.

    My (outdated) copy of the SRS...

    The screws in the previous post are for inletting only. Not for final installation of the trigger guard.

    Sleeving the Inletting Screws

    As mentioned, the inletting guide screws were a sloppy fit in the stock. I can't imagine inletting without putting the action into the stock the exact same way every time. In order to do this, the...

    I contemplated that for a moment. I'm aiming for more of a "dangerous game" type rifle, though. Now, I won't ever actually use it that way since I don't hunt at all...but I feel like fumbling with...

    Thanks for the tip! Haha

    Here's a quick picture with the cheekpiece removed. A coarse rasp then files make quick work of a job like this. And again, the vise is just fantastic.
