Built this kit years ago when it was less than $400, wow can't believe they have increased that much. This is basically a finish it yourself kit ,all inletting is done, not much if any shaping will be required, brass will need to be polished,barrel will need a finish ,I browned mine. My stock is american walnut that took some sanding,and filler to fill the grain and several coats of true oil,or the finish of your choice.
I just weighed mine it is a whisker over 8lb.
If you decide to do this,I believe you will be happy with the results, 30gr of 3f swiss and a 310 patched with pillow tic round ball will clover leaf at 35yds, bench rest of course. Lock never fails,and trigger is sweet.
Thanks for reminding me that it was in the safe,haven't had it out to play in a while. 78yr old eyes and open sights don't line up like they used to.
Go for it you'll love it.
