Rare 40X on GB.



  • The guy selling the clean stock 40X also has a Winchester 52D for sale also.

    Yes, there will be others.
    I think most are sitting in safes and are sold to pay bills or as part of an estate.

    I would rather have a nice 40X or a 3 position Anschutz than any AR over $1500 unless it is a KA SR-25.

    The Local club runs a class just for the classic older 3p rifles like the 52, 40X, Kimber 82G and pre 1990 Anschutz in wood stocks. That keeps you from going against the Aluminum stock Walther 300, 400 and the Annie Precise 2013, 1913 or the new 54-30.
    TargetTalk.Org is a good place to look.

  • All of those rifles will shoot lights out but the Winchester is way under-valued at present.

    Timin' has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

  • The winchester is a beauty...and they will shoot very well too. I have a soft place for the 52's...but unless one is going with a vintage unertl scope and mounts it is difficult to put a scope on them. If I could have put a good scope base, trigger, and stock on a win 52 I would have built a 52 instead of a 40x...but the 52 is just not compatible with anything. the 52 is a buy it and shoot it like it is rifle. The 40x is adaptable to whatever configuration one might desire.



  • Not a 40x...but a nice rifle none the less.

  • Here is another one. Could be coupled with a ptg bolt.

    http://www.gunbroker.com/item/617141083



  • It should sell at the buy it now price, but would be border line high. By the time you spend $250 for a bolt plus $150 for a good trigger plus $50 for the small parts You're in pretty deep and you don't have a stock yet. I already have a bolt and trigger and I'm too chicken to buy it. Wayne



  • There a bolt on GunBroker even haha.

    Could you give a link to the bolt? it doesn't come up under my usual searches.
    Thanks, Wayne





  • Thanks rhyno;
    Too bad there isn't a cheap buy it now. I would be all over it. If it goes reasonable enough I may bid on it. Wayne

    This is true as I have seen complete rifles sell under $1000. Not many...but a few.



  • No problem, good luck!



  • I guess this has become the 40X lookout thread..
    That is good thing.
    Good luck bidding.

    Sorry if I helped hijack your thread! I saw that freeland stock stock when the rifle was first listed and would love to have it. The problem I see with this rifle is the fact that they don't show the barrel channel from the top. It is a standard barrel rifle and I would be afraid the channel is for a larger dia barrel. I wasn't interested enough to ask the seller that question.

    You don't see many with a complete Freeland International Stock.

    http://www.gunbroker.com/item/615922009

    I am so irritated right now.
    In November it would have been something I would bid on.
    Not now. Supporting grandchildren.

    The Auction on this one ended, and it looks like it went for a good price.



  • @rhyno

    It did go for a decent price. Apparently the one I liked better was liked by others as well. It is quite a bit higher...even more than I think it would be worth if I was in the market for one.



  • Saw that as well.

    I wonder if it's because it's US marked, and the r700 style.



  • @rhyno

    I have seen other us marked ones sell for under 1500. I don't know for sure...but I bet it is just a pretty one....and like you said the 700 trigger compatible doesn't hurt.

    I saw one a few months ago sell for $1800...and I am still kinda wishing I had picked it up. It was a 700 style with scope base bedded into a manners T4 with jewel trigger. That is a lot of value for the $1800 especially considering that the stocks start at around $700. I already had the parts for mine when I saw that one or I would have bought it and had it converted to repeater.



  • @dddoo7 yea that would have been a good deal as well.

    It's always interesting to see what rifles sell for.



  • Would this be a good time to mention what a dumbass I am... in that I once could have bought as many as I want for $700 each?



  • @orkan from the CMP?

    That would have been nice haha.

    Heck if Remington still made them that would be nice.

    Speaking of that, they do have a lot more options on their website for 40x now.



  • @orkan

    I felt quite foolish for passing up that tan repeater you sold a couple years ago. At the time I just thought that my CZ was everything I would ever need. It was not until I actually started shooting it that I found the inefficiencies of it.



  • @rhyno

    If Remington still made them they would be 1 moa shooters if one was lucky. I don't believe it is the Remington brand that makes these 40x's shoot so well. I believe it is the 1950-60's American Craftsmanship that makes them shoot. That would mean that people would still be looking for the older models...it would just be harder to find them because they would be cluttered in among the 1000's of new ones.



  • @dddoo7 hmm not sure about that, the 40x is still a good gun. They're not factory guns like your off the shelf r700.

    At least the few I've seen shot.





  • Just to close the loop, the Winchester 52-D sold for a tic less than $1400 which is just about exactly what I paid for the last two I bought at the Verein last year by the time the new owner pays shipping and transfer fees.

    Another USMC listed

    It says it's ended.



  • @orkan

    that is odd. seller must have backed out. It had 6 days left earlier this morning.



  • @dddoo7 said:

    http://www.gunbroker.com/item/617630370

    This one ended already, so something happened lol.

    Looks like I'm late to this party.



  • I stumbled on this, and thought, man and Orkan was upset he missed out on a bunch for $700 !

    This was back in 2009

  • Yeah, I bought a few of those barreled receivers and paired them with ptg bolts... and then sold them.

    Stupid.

    Yea, wouldn't it be nice to have a few of them back at the same price. Wayne



  • @rimfire No joke. Doubt we'll ever see those days again my friend.



  • Here's an interesting rifle that has a neat history.

    http://www.gunbroker.com/item/618782488



  • This one is reasonably priced and in rough enough shape that it might sell low. Looks interesting.

    http://www.gunbroker.com/item/618889245



  • @dddoo7 it'll be interesting to see how high it goes compared to that last one.

    Did all the USMC ones have that bottom metal? Seems a bit odd.



  • Wait do they all have bottom metal like that? I guess I never noticed it outside of the trigger guard.



  • Hmm. Now I have to go look at mine

    I can see it going for about 1100. If it could be had for under a grand it could be a decent deal.



  • Just remember, if any of you buy that one, its an "A" model receiver and will need the tang cut to accept rem700 triggers w/safety.



  • Another early 40x us property marked.

    Something to think about...but wouldn't stop ME from buying one if it sold at a decent price. I know people who can fix that problem.

    Also, can a bottom safety trigger be used without modification to the rifle?



  • @dddoo7 said:

    Most often, yes.



  • 1hour left on this one still under 1k

  • @rhyno

    I wasn't paying attention and lost by 10 dollars.

    Ouch, well there's another ending soon.

    http://www.gunbroker.com/item/61888924
    Might go a little higher as it's U.S.M.C marked.

    I got one nabbed the other day, so I'm not bidding on any.



  • @rhyno
    I have a stiller sitting in the safe I'm just going to build.

    Don't feel bad. Depending on how badly the other guy wanted it you could have lost it by hundreds.



  • @dddoo7
    Yeah I'm not to worried more will always come up.



  • I don't know the guy and can't vouch for him...but here is one for sale.
