Depends on the serial nbr., and there was a recent one I hankered after on BBS & here which went for a fair price, MINT, but early serial #....add the price 2nd hand price of the Deben scope, and you might be onto a sweet deal. Depends what the seller is expecting ??? I know for a fact you can source BRAND NEW ones in Spain for Euro 1850+ ...and they are in blue
Ugly point ? - weighs a ton ; need to add a Jon Harris rail onto barrel. Add a cheek riser as well; parts are scarce, but I found a source in Poland....some replacement seals are on eBay from a Canadian seller. Lastly, you might have to shift the barrel band to the rear to cure all POI issues; front heavy ; get Maestro, to perhaps sell you a moderator (not a true silencer, as It has no baffles - see my pics in my album). If its to much hassle to mod, you may well save some $$$$, by getting a Steyr FT as It shoots sweet out of the box. Love it or hate it...I love it !
Positive- barrel accuracy, if you have top 'hand picked' one...cracking trigger. Original design (some find ugly) . Ask Maestro what he thinks with regards to his Ft performance
Let us know what you decide ?
