For the true collectors and retro guys these will not be good enough, but for a lot of folks, like me, this is just the ticket.

Could we have a topic devoted strictly to the Brownells rifles?

And...I decided to sell mine, if anyone is interested, here it is. I took it out of the box. Admired it. Took a poop-ton of photos of it and back in the box it went. Never fired.

They sell for $1300, plus shipping and/or the +14 Brownells tacks on for "firearm transfer" (whatever the heck that is!).

Bids are up now to $955.
