Perfect timing jpickar!!! Hunting season and fall/winter weather so we have to wait for better photos and a range report!

I got my antelope and deer season doesn't start until the end of Oct. so if there is good weather I will give the 40X some range time.

I have seen at least one other gun with oil written in the barrel channel that was the RKW shiny finish. I believe that the oil finish process was extremely slow due to the wait in dry time between coats and the number of coats that it took to fill all of the grain. Some customers got antsy when they found out the RKW finish took much less time to complete, so they changed their order from oil to RKW.

Nice rifle you obtained. They typically shoot incredibly.

I have been looking on the gun sites and haven't come up with a current price for one. I have done all the advanced searches and come up with zero on finished auctions.

Any help in finding a current value would be appreciated. It is in very good condition. It has been shot some. No box or papers or anything. Just a shooter grade gun but still worth a bundle.

Thanks for any input. John
jpickar - A big CONGRATS goes out to you on purchasing a 'DREAM'... Not many people have the chance to see or hold, let alone own, a rifle like your friend sold to you! You're a fortunate person to have a friend like that!

There is a great knowledge base on this Forum about these rifles, and it was important you had the chance to get in touch with WATCHADDIC, VertFish and others to give you their insight about these beautiful 22LR rifles. I think the more you learn about what you have in your hands, the more you will appreciate the history about these fine firearms... I know I sure did!

Again, you've got a beautiful rifle there Sir! Enjoy your treasure to the fullest!!!

Oh, by the way, feed that new 'baby' some really good ammo (ex. Lapua Midas+ or better yet X-Act ) and she will reward you with smiles that will stretch from ear to ear... ENJOY!

Thanks for the kind words. I haven't been able to shoot it yet due to weather and hunting season. I probably won't get to shoot it until next spring now the weather is cold now. I have some good ammo to shoot in it too.
