Big Larry, even with the COD, if the rifle has an excellent bore and is otherwise in reasonable condition, I'd gladly pay $300 and feel I'd gotten a bargain. The COD isn't that big of a deal unless...

It's the pre-A first model slow lock 52 in a Laudensack stock. The rifle is worth about $600 - give or take - with the iron sights.

The scope and mounts are worth as much as the rifle.

One of our regular benchrest shooters alternates between a Kimber 82 and a 52B. He has won his fair share of matches with the 52B.

The International front and rear sights, NIB condition, with original boxes would likely bring $300 - maybe more - if sold separately. They are nice sights.

The police are looking for you. $299 for an early CZ-452 American is theft and you may want to begin telling people you paid $500 or more.

Welcome to RFC. Seriously, that rifle was a GREAT buy and...

IMO, Tim has the answer. Match chambers are cut tighter than run of the mill sporting chambers designed to easily chamber all cartridges.

Thanks for the replies. You've confirmed my own thoughts that $1,000 ~ $1,200 is a good ball park value.

That's hard to answer without knowing exactly what make and model rifle you have in mind.

OTOH, if you buy a Remington 700 in .222, there are many aftermarket triggers available to choose from.

While I agree that it shouldn't be controversial, I've seen far too many arguments over it.

While this is a centerfire section, this is about rimfire rifles.

Some 15 years or so back, I sold a Remington model 37 .22 target rifle to a friend. A few months later he told me that he couldn't...

You may have a magazine problem if the bolt is shaving the bullets. It could be the angle the cartridges are held at by the magazine.

Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. IMO, there's nothing grotesque about the MTR stock. It's similar to the stock on my CZ-557 which is very comfortable, especially from the bench.
