Local shop has a Winchester m70 Coyote lite in 22-250 on consignment right now at $795. If I remember right it was topped with leupold rings and bases with a cheap leapers scope in them. Gun looks to be in great shape with not many rounds through it. I would like to be able to talk to the owner to see if he has an exact or estimate of the number down the tube. The shop owner mentioned the owner was a friend is would probably let it go as is for $750. I plan on asking him to talk to the owner to see if he would sell without scope for maybe $650-$700. My father has been wanting to get a 22-250 for quite a while now and I'd like to do something nice for him for everything he has done for me. Online reviews look to be mostly positive. I personally fell in love with the look and feel of the gun and when I showed my father he seemed to like i as well. I would love to get some opinions from someone who has one or shot one to see if I should persue the purchase and if i is a fair price.
