    Custom mid-heavy barrel and some other things done to it. it is bolt action, the bolt cocks the gun when opened, not closed.

    will come with brass and a reloading die set (2 pc.) and a little ammo. 50+ pieces of brass and ammo.

    the gun has a monte carlo style stock, and a muzzle break. looks to be threaded.

    pretty nice gun with no cracks in the stock.

    if you want an inexpensive safari gun, then this is it.

    currently have 3-4 rounds or so of factory Weatherby Magnum ammo which is 7500+ ft. lbs. of energy, and it pushes a 500 grain bullet at 2600 ft. per second with this load.

    Looking to trade this for several things.

    204 Ruger
    223
    22-250
    243
    308
    1911's
    Glocks
    XD's
    and other handguns, rifles, shotguns, ammo, scopes.
    AR's and I ad cash.
    shotguns

    VERY interested in part trades on nice midpower scopes, a 4-14, 6-18, 4-16, 5-20??? you get the idea.

    $499 OR BEST OFFER! I am willing to work on the price too it is just there as a guide for offers.

    bullet next to the 2 monsters is a 223..... :) puts things in perspective doesn't it....

    bump. price is just suggestive. make offers.

    204, 243, 308, 223, AR, ak, shotguns and other part trades or full trades.

    the brass and dies alone are about $200.

    it is also possible this is a Winchester action....

    What is the length of pull and barrel length. Have you fired the rifle and are there any issues with function? Thanks, Tom.
    Is the scope included and if so what is it?

    Interesting rifle but just not in the budget now. This is the caliber the Makah indians at Neah Bay killed their last gray whale with. Awesome power.

    I have some questions for you; When you fired it, did you shoot factory full power loads, or lighter handloads? How bad is the recoil? What does the gun weigh?

    Who built the gun? Has everything been checked out by a good gunsmith?

    What brand are the dies?

    I've been wanting something excessively powerful for awhile now, but I'm real concerned with how safe something like this, as I always figured .460 was too much to be chambered to in anything other than a weatherby.

    Coosbay you sent your email to the wrong party, it needs to go to CODEMAN583. He may be out of the area right now but has answered my emails.

    looked at by a couple gunsmiths. its safe to fire and it was factory power loads... the 1917 is plenty strong enough for the 460 ask some gunsmiths. not sure on the brand of the dies.

    i will check the brands tomorrow. coming back into town...

    not sure of the builder, just that it works well, and other gunsmiths didn't have anything bad to say about it.
