Biathlon Rifle For Sale:

Good morning here is a little blurb about my rifle and some pictures.

image2 image3 image1 unnamed-3

It is extremely well taken care of rifle, I bought it in 2007, direct from the dealer. Always stored and transported in hard case. It comes with the following;

New firing pin put in

Hard case ( number code entry) 




5 mags

I’m sure I can send along the cleaning kit if said buyer is in need.

This rifle has been my pride and joy for  many years, but it is time I pass it on to be used and loved by someone else. 

I am asking 5,000 for it. I am open to reasonable offers, keeping in mind that rifles don’t really go down much in value, increase.
