My good friend and former co-worker has had for several years a beautiful MDF Browning X bolt medallion 300wsm that I have been trying to talk him out of since he first found it in the family safe.

Apparently he needed a stripped ar lower and a gift certificate for a guided float trip because we made a trade today. Now I am torn between just owning it, treating it like the tool it is, finding a syntjetic stock to hunt it in, seeing if I can sell/trade up for whatever, or having it around for the next shortage since 300wsm seems to be present on the shelves. It is probably right at 6.75lbs, and I really like the stock shape.

First world issues I guess.

So it took you forever to talk him out of it and your instantly thinking of selling it.
That's what keeps people from letting go of these jems. They want it to go to someone that loves it.

Personally I'd find a gloss leupold for it and hunt it the way it is.
I like lookers and all but I don't hold back hunting them. The rifle was ment to be used.

Is there something that makes an early 2000’s Browning desirable?
Having owned a Browning X-bolt I don’t understand the desire.
The early 90’s stainless stalkers weren’t bad.

This one on Gunbroker is $1k.

If you ask my wife, I am always considering selling or trading just about anything. That's how I can turn a pound of powder into four, or knife into a bow. I also had just one very ugly rifle when this guy showed up in the safe, and it didn't say magnum on it.

Right now, I am leaning towards seeing if my brother wants it after he finishes his hunter's safety class.
