I know the seller and have shot with him numerous times. He is a great guy, has excellent tastes and takes good care of his rifles. That's a very nice stick of English that probably cost north of $1,500 for the blank and I think maybe $750 for LeRoy to inlet it. It would make a great nice day squirrel rifle, woods walk around gun or local gun club new kid in town. If I was flush, I would have already snagged it.

Beautiful rifle but no way would I spend that much money and put in the squirrel woods.

Counterpoint: The stock was close to $3K.

$3400 shipped/insured for a Canyon Creek 1712 is like getting a free 1712 barreled action...Tom

I'm not knocking the rifle, just sayin that IF I ever spent that much money on a .22 rifle it would never see the woods. Last month I bought a 1712 in a beautiful walnut stock for $1550 to my FFL and it will never see the squirrel woods. I have a $450 Tikka T1X that shoots almost as well that I can beat the pi$$ out of and not worry about it. Your mileage may vary.

If this is about helping a nice guy sell his gun. Then yes, it is a beauty.

If this is a serious discussion about this rifle. I dont see $3500 there.

I dont get the stock shape 1/2 bench rest and 1/2 sporter, what is that?

Now, I am going to catch heck. And that is not right. Either.

If I'm going to spend that much money on something, it will be a new Icom IC-7851.

Common shape stock for a varmint hunter where you often use a rest. Although not a benchrest.
Canyon Creek has developed quite a reputation. You want quality like this rifle you have to pay up.
I think it is a beautiful rifle and the seller is a good guy. And forebore I'm not giving you heck!
A Cooper with AAA stock upgrade will set you back about the same $$$$. And then there is the Anschutz North America upgraded guns.

Point well taken on cost. Most won't see it as the deal it is since they don't shop in that price range.

Most folks won't own a $4000 watch either when a Timex will keep time just fine.

The stock is a Varmint stock (note the three clues in the picture!), just like an Anschutz Beavertail stock or a Cooper LVT although this one is a bit more slim/trim. As said, designed to be optimal from a rest or bag...Tom

While I am a huge fan of a slender Schnabel forearm, I'm really digging this style as well, just a beautiful, well put together rifle that's a little out of my reach.
Camster has a 1710 on steroids listed also.
