I would like a second one in my collection...have 2 slots left in my rifle rack. NPM...QH...IBM. Wonder how long they'll last. Just love the finish on them.

The thing is, if they're just importing these now then they will have to put a big ugly billboard import mark on them. Not the nice little hidden/almost invisible ones we prefer. :(

Blue Sky Part 2?

At least when CAI re-imports Ruger 10-22s (I haven't a clue why, or where they're coming from, but they do it and you can find them at Cabelas and Basspro) they do a decent job of hiding the rollmark under the barrel and not putting the barrel out of round. Sometimes.

maybe they are ex Israeli non lethal sniper/crowd control turn ins.

we dont know when CAI imported those. They could have been piled in a wharehouse for years.
The newer marks and the amount of info makes for ugly marks.

Several listed here recently for $1200. Appeal to me is the non-rebuild and finish status. Just a good strip/cleaning and maybe rebuild the bolt.

DOWN TO 50!

Went with the VG to excellent for $999. Was tempted to go all in but the stock market is down today... buying this with profits taken from last week.
