New Guy Needs Help

Post by Sunshine »

NEW KID ON THE BLOCK
Just retired so now I have the time. Moving from New York to Florida so now I have the availability. Want to collect milsurp and distinctive C&R pieces. Just spotted a rifle online that looks like a milsurp that has been sporterized. All help determining what this started out as will be appreciated.
Looking forward to being a Forum member.

I do not think that has been sporterized, that looks like a Westley Richards big game rifle.. I do not have a clue to caliber, but those are usually large caliber rounds.. So I think it started out to look just like it does.. Per price on that thing.. Many 1000s. If you get one.. shoot things that are real big or has a lot of back stop..

Where are you moving in Florida???

indy1919a4, Thanks for the info & the quick response. Followed the name you gave me and found the attached which is obviously the same gun and obviously $$$ wow.
Hoping to complete the move in 3 to 4 months to the Palm Beach area..
