A VERY Clean example for a pre-used rifle and in original format from the manufacturer.
22” (560mm) Unthreaded Barrel set to a 13 5/8” (345mm) pull stock. This has a GOOD Strong Straight Grain Pattern with some half decent Colour Contrast. Chequering is still nice and clean cut and hardly a mark or blemish anywhere worth a mention. The MK11 has the side position safety so definitely designated fully right handed and this trigger is a delight. Beautifully crisp with a very light and easy release. Overall this tips in at 7 Lbs 6 oz (3.355 Kg) and a total length of 42 5/8” (1082mm).
The experts and media are now pushing it down your throats as the ‘Latest and Greatest’. As a hunting round the ‘55’ has been around for just about ever. BEFORE racing off for the latest Creedmore, PRC or whatever other ‘Wildcat’ someone comes up with: Take a LOOK at the difference in ballistics between this and them. THEN ask yourself if you are shooting live quarry at reasonable distances or paper out to a mile and more. If its paper by all means opt for the extra approx. 300 to 600 ft/sec.
It MIGHT help IF you are actually a good enough shot and shooting well past 1000 yards. For live quarry PLEASE use your head and keep things simple. Ammunition is so much more readily available for this as is the brass should you want to re-load.
Just me being me and offering what little advice I can. Take it. Leave it. Save yourself heartache and money or don’t.
