1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Short History on this rifle:
    I found this gun locally about 20 years ago. The story I got is some jackass decided he was going to Alaska, ordered the rifle from Dakota them proceded to devalue it by installing an Answer Products recoil pad and brake because the recoil was to stiff for him. The gun came from Dakota Magna Ported but I assume the dill weed thought the more holes with the Answer brake the better. Arghhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! He effecttively ruined an upgraded English walnut stock and wasted money on the brake. I couldn't stand looking at the ugly sponge recoil pad so I had a spacer and decent pad installed to match the factory LOP. The barrel retains the same length as ordered of 23". It may be possible to remove the brake and install a blank piece to return the barrel to the original look. The good news, the accuracy of the rifle was not harmed and shoots as you would expect something of this quality would. The wood quality and fitting speaks for itself. As I indicated the wood was an up grade, the bolt has is three panel checkered, it comes with Dakota rings and bases. It has a steel grip cap. I also have dies and brass. The stock has only very minor handling marks. The metal is 98 percent.
    This is a Dakota by the original founder of Dakota Arms. As you know these rifles don't come cheap. In light of the negative modifications and the lack of Cape buffalo in Oklahoma I will offer the gun at $3500.00 shipped. At that price you can use it as is or build your own custom rifle with top quality components.
    PS I have shot the rifle quite a few times and don't find the recoil unmanagable although brisk!!
