I finally found the rifle I was looking for, on Gunbroker.com

There are a couple used ones, and a new one a couple of weeks ago, but they were bidding way too high for my budget.

Found this one, and saw that the end of the auction was on Christmas Day. I thought that just maybe I'd have a crack at it, since most folks are busy with Christmas happenings, on Christmas Day...and I was right.

I paid just a little over MSRP, but I can live with that. These rifles, in .243 Win, are hard to come by. Especially NIB...

I should have it in hand, within 10 days. :D

I have a Burris Fullfield II Tactical Riflescope (4.5-14 X 42mm) mounted on a LaRue Q-D mount, that I can swap back and forth.

It's currently mounted on my Bushmaster Camo Predator (picture below). I'll just record the zero on my bore-sighter, from both rifles, so I'll know the settings for both.

That'll have to do...it took all my mad money, stash money, & a little from savings, to be able to pull off this deal on the DPMS. So, I can't really afford to buy a dedicated scope for it yet.

I'm happy just to have one to call my own, for now!

I didn't have any certain critter in mind...I just like the .243 round, and thought it would be a great addition to my collection.

If/when I do take it hunting, it would be great from coyote's to whitetails, I imagine. :D

Too bad the other auction didn't work out, though...I was looking forward to a road-trip, and introducing myself.

Thanks again, for your assistance in that matter...

Yes and no. :rof2:

I have been thinking about 1 of those for a while now. And I guess if I'm going to get one, I'd better do it soon in case you can't get them anymore. :shrug:
