    did't sell...there were no bids, just ended

    also 34" HEAVY barrel...not sure this would work for many people under 220lbs and 6'4". i certainly would never be able to swing it smoothly

    it probably sold "offline"....it was slated for 7 days and it closed only after 16 hours lol....

    you can sell the barrels and put the $$ towards a set of new ones and still be significantly under the price of a new MX8 with the drop out trigger selector

    No bids on it, he could end the auction at any time.

    Seller has every right to do whatever he wants, but "No sale to CA" is an indicator of how ignorant the seller was.

    Why shouldn't we keep our guns in free states and out of a place that will sooner or later confiscate them and melt them down? They is some good peoples in CA but the place is run by a bunch of quiche eatin butt huggin no good commies.

    He probably figured out that it was too cheap, & took it off before it sold.

    Did they start allowing people to own guns in California again?

    Yea, I got it on a three day. I talked to the guy and he sounded like he knew his stuff. We'll see. Personally, I like the 34" barrels with a little weight to them. I bought another MX2000 today as well....34" barrels. I'm always looking to buy sporting guns. Especially P-guns.

    if you change your mind and like your MX2000 more, drop me a line, I am tempted by that MX8 (if it's as in the described condition).

    Unless you are the Terminator...I doubt most people could swing 1780 kg 34" barrels with short window targets....

    Maybe Paul Bunyan.....

    Cool...leaves more deals for me on these guns!! Doesn't hurt my game a lick. Little Jamie Riggs handed many a feller their shorts shooting 34" barrels, before she left this world..

    1780 kg = 3924 pounds

    Very low recoil.

    Actually, the sporting game is changing. The bigger tournaments I went to this year were primarily long targets. I like long barrels. They point great and if the gun is balanced right the gun moves very well. I know long barrels get a bad rap....mostly from people who never shot them but hear that they are not 'movable'. I move them just fine. I'd rather shoot a 34" gun that handles well as a 30" gun that doesn't.

    Yes in general if the gun is well balanced, it should not matter the length of the barrels. But I, personally, would not be able to make 1.78kg barrels swing smoothly. I had 1.66kg and it was good, but I think 1.6kg is perfect for me. Would have liked just a bit lighter.
