    I have an model 70 coyote light in 270 wsm if your interested still. Has a trigger job, very light pull but won't drop fire, Shoots really good, clover leafs at 100 yards (have the targets to prove it). It sits in a bedded houge stock but I have the brand new original stock in olive green with black speckle still.

    Also, I'm not sure if you reload, but the load development is done for this rifle. Have around 120 brass, probably around a thousand bullets for it, and the dies if your interested. I'll give you the recipe for the accurate loads as well. I love this rifle but I'm wanting to build something different so this would fund that.

    Well I'm not sure this would be an appropriate rifle for a 12 year old. I'm not sure how big he is but this is not a compact light rifle. The barrel is only 24 inches but it is a heavier varmint target style contour. The stock isn't more than 3 lbs, but the forearm is wide which might make it difficult for small hands to grip.

    I guess I would suggest looking up pictures and specs of the coyote light and deciding if it would work based off of his size.

    It also doesn't look brand spanking new, I've hunted a lot with it, taken 5 big game animals. It's been in a lot of extremely rugged places. There are a couple small scratches on the trigger guard. I'm not sure if that makes any difference or not.

    I don't know if you want a price for everything, or just the rifle. Let me know and I'll come up with something.

    Thanks for taking the time to explain what you have. Your correct, it may be a tad to much for the boy.
    Once again, thanks!
