    The rifle is set up for a sling and is paracord wrapped.

    Never sold here before so I could use some advice from the other monkeys as for how-to & whatever other advice might come to mind.

    I need money for school and I need to finish school more than I need a cabinet full of guns, so....
    I went through all my 'stuff and can part with a couple others too.I also have a .44mag/Ruger super blackhawk with a 10 1/2 inch barrel and a ruger #1 in 45/70.

    Pics are always nice, and post what price you are asking for.

    Do you want a local sale or are you willing to ship?

    Depending on price, dibs on the Scout :)

    Which 22 is the Scout configured for...?

    And yeah, prices and whether you will ship and for how much would be good :)

    Thanks so much and all things equal, "Dibs" are acceptable!

    I want to thank everyone for their advice/input. I'm not selling yet, that said, if it comes down to the rifle or a text book the gun's gotta go. I'm going to know pretty soon.

    Probably a good move if you can pull it off.

    Took me a couple of years to find mine (ended up getting it from another Monkey) and they just seem to get rarer.

    One of the things I discovered about wrapping the M6 barrels in paracord is that it will change the point of impact considerably unless you either figure-eight the wraps between barrels or put spacers between them to prevent the gradual tension of the cord from bending the barrel upward.

    I did notice a very slight change in POI with the .410 barrel. The .22 barrel remained stable. Fortunately the change was vertical and not horizontal which is easier for me to remember to compensate for. Thanks for the tip on the figure eight. I am going to try it out today.
