I may be interested. Been trying to hold out for an original, but have had no luck.Very glad to see my bases getting put to use. Several builders are now using my bases for their M40A1 Projects. I am considering doing a 1" SIMRAD CAP again. Anyone interested?
I think you have a very fair price, to be honest. If I didn't have an order through TwoMan, I would be on that in a hot minute.M40A1 Guidline pricing question ...
PWS built M40A1 with M40A1 scope base, stamped gunbook, insured shipping.
I looked at GA Precisions website. I think GAP builds the highest quality M40A1s on the market and it looks like this is what they go for.
GA Precision quality M40A1 rifle $3700 + shipping
GA Precision charges M40A1 shipping $75
M40A1 replica scope base $415
M40A1 USMC issued gun book $50-$140 (depends on where you buy it)
That is $4330 total.
Plus the value of a PWS built item carries a premium and NO WAIT TIME. My question is, is the rifle priced out of the market or is it just that people rarely spend that kind of money on them?
$13 K with 20 more days to go. This will probably surpass the $40K someone spent on a surplus M40.Here is a interesting auction to watch
Civilian Marksmanship Program - Promoting firearms safety training!
Based on other CMP auctions and the provenance I'm guessing it will pass $20K
That Punisher touch will appeal to the collectors.
Is a picture possible describing what you are talking about? (ya know, the type worth 10k words ) I believe I know what you are talking about but curious the length and utilization.M40A1 slings. In my experience they were used very little and mostly stayed in the protecto kaddy. We used 550 cord slings. Feild expediant slings that were looped through the front sling swivel and around our wrist. Leather slings were left in the hard cases. I cannot ever remember using one with my m40a1. I may have but not often
Some pics were just posted on this threadIs a picture possible describing what you are talking about? (ya know, the type worth 10k words ) I believe I know what you are talking about but curious the length and utilization.
There was an E series action with trigger in the WTS section last week. It was priced right and would be appropriate for your build. Came with a proper trigger you would need to get notched for the Model 70 bottom metal.
Butt you know about "that kind of boat"?.......hmmmmm.
Im not judging, just saying Captain.
Damn any of those for sale?<a href="http://s238.photobucket.com/user/joshuadowdle/media/Mobile%20Uploads/166851882_zpsyazuummh.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff164/joshuadowdle/Mobile%20Uploads/166851882_zpsyazuummh.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 166851882_zpsyazuummh.jpg"></a>
