Hi Gitano,

Well it was due to a number of things including a friend who had been badgering me about it. I also want an unaltered one, this one had been reblued at some time. They do come up occasionally but not often. I know some one who found a heavier one in .577. Eventually when they stripped it apart, it was all gummed up and jammed up with crud. They found the cartridge markings on the side of the breechblock. .577NE now that's a real beastie Oh he got it for a song too as the dealer thought is was .577 Snider which is not very popular for a sporting round. If it had been 577/450 the price would have doubled
