The seller is required to sight the buyer's firearms licence and required documentation.
Rifle is a SAKO AV5 (hunter model)
it is an older action in reasonable condition (still nice and tight) but with a slight loss of blueing on a really nice peice of walnut. the stock has small marks/indentations on it but still looks really good.
The Stainless Krieger Barrel in 280ai is in extremely good condition with a max of 100rnds or less through it. i estimate on the number of cases i have etc.

It has a Muzzle break which drops the recoil surprizingly to that of about .243
This means it fires 280REM and 280ai without much felt recoil and helps build confidence enabling the shooter to shoot well.

The 280ai is similair in capacity to the 7mm Rem MAG if slightly less, but it pushes a 140grn projectile around the same velocity without too much trouble. and with slightly less powder.
The fact it uses the standardised 30-06 case means cases are far cheaper and easier to procure than that of the 7mm REM MAG
The scope is a 50mm Mark 4 Leupold in LR/T 4.5-14 with 30mmtube in excellent optical condition, it has slight rubbing on one of the turrets which has removed a small amount of paint.
It fires 280REM with surprising accuracy, but the real ability of this Rifle shows up when used with the fire formed cases in 280ai
it loves the 140grn accubonds and is a pleasure to shoot.

I built this when i was living in southland and had intentions of getting up on the tops.
I will be sad to see it go as it is my prize and joy but i just don't get out anymore and it doesn't do anything sitting in the cupboard.
