    So how much do they want for them?

      Around 3500 for everything.

        At half price it’s actually not a bad deal, but I wouldn’t lose sleep over missing out on one. Unless you care about the provenance, you can build one for a few hundred less. The Leupold optic is $1500 new at Amazon and the HS adjustable stocks are $600. You can buy a (short action) .308 700 for around $750 new, so I imagine you could put together a nice barreled action for around that or little more, probably even a long action if you wanted an exact copy. A Timney or Jewell trigger is another couple hundred as is a magazine baseplate if you wanted one.The case itself is probably a few hundred though, if that was important to you.

    Reading the flyers both Guns.com and this site have gotten it wrong. The flyer very clearly states that the raffle will be for “the very first system of this production run.”

    In addition, there will be a total of “less than 2,000 of these systems offered for sale.”

    Also, Guns.com scalped the article from Defense Review without giving credit, which I know this site is better about.

    Love the site and haven’t commented, but felt I had to here. I’m Active Duty and will be buying one of these myself.

    those babies are gonna go fast!

    imagine the resale value (if they can be found for sale ‘used’ @ your local gun store) will be a handfull & a half.

      Raffle tickets will be sold on the show floor at SHOT apparently, and ONLY on the show floor. Remington will update their site soon with where to go to get your own rifle for cash money and I’ll keep you in the loop on that one.

    If you read it, the raffle is for ONE of the guns. The very first system built. I know – I saw this earlier and was excited until I realized the chances of winning were like hitting the lottery.

    The Remington sales brochure (Link at defensereview) states that the rifles, in addition to new barrels, will have NEW receivers – so it looks like for the most part what you’d get would be a NEW gun with a USED stock!

    I would want the original, not messed with, mil surp rifle, no new parts. Seems like they’re trying to turn it into a media event.
