Shawn Thomason built the rifle, Glass bedded etc. (Diamond T rifle shop)
(Can't remember how much he charged me for labor)
Built 2 years ago, only shot about 40 rounds through it. Barrel properly broke in.
$5,600 value w/ labor etc. Firmly asking $3,599 for the complete set-up.
Had to wait 12 months for all the parts to arrive & be put together.
Action originally started off as a 300 win mag that i purchased about 2 years prior to this build, bolt face was "opened up" for the Lapua. Haven't had any issues.
There is a wear mark by the front sling stud from where i ran Harris bipods attached to the stock. Nothing major but there is two vertical wear lines leftover. In picture.
My cousin borrowed this gun to go wolf hunting, & it came back with another wear mark near the recoil pad on top of stock, No idea how it got there but i filled it in black so it's less noticable. Also in attached picture
Never shot it on paper any farther than 200 yards. Shot a spike bull at 530 yards with it last fall, Hit it right behind the front shoulder where i was aiming.

Can have gunsmith fax me chamber blueprints if needed.
Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs, insurance, tracking etc.
Will only sell items as a complete package.
Will not accept trades.
REASON FOR SELLING: I just don't have enough time to do near as much long range plinking as I thought I would. & I used to hunt wide open clear cuts & just sit & glass. But now I'm getting to where i like to hunt old growth timber away from the roads where you really don't need a long range set up. This gun is 11.25 pounds including scope etc. So I've gotten to where i just carry my 8 pound 30-06 for hunting the timber now. And I was kind of undecided on whether or not I was gonna sell but I just got married last week & had emergency appendix surgery that same night (bad timing lol) so I decided I would just sell this gun and put some $$$ back in the bank and just hunt out to 350 yards with my 30-06 for awhile.
Have never sold anything that wasn't being sold locally so you may have to help me with proper paperwork etc. Thank you in advance. I'm in Orofino, Idaho.
