Hey all, I was lurking the LGS today and found, hidden away in the corner, a barely used (bolt face is still clean, only a bit of residue in the barrel, bolt lugs barely showing any wear at all, some scratches on the barrel) Weather Vanguard in 7mm Rem Mag for $300 (comes to about $325 after taxes). I think this is the proverbial "Someone bought it, shot it a bit, and couldn't shoot well with it" gun.
Good deal? Good enough that I should run back to the store before class and put it on layaway? Good enough to take that over the $50 discount on a new Vanguard (thanks to the new Vanguard II), which is about $375 after taxes? I have a 7mm-08, is a 7mm Rem Mag enough of a step up to justify it?
Purpose of this gun would be for the potential Forum elk hunt next year, and just to have it.
Thanks for any input!
