    i came across a LH .300 magnum previously owned by an elderly gentleman.
    The barrel is a Finnbear with a Bufours steel stamp.
    Wood stock is in excellent condition.
    The action is a Ruger with a 3 position safety.
    Can anyone shed some light on this?
    The gun probably weighs 7-7.25 lbs. found it in a Vermont gun shop. $650

    Custom guns are a mystery when the inventor is not available to explain the birthing process. Rugers are strong enough to handle this caliber.
    It’s an interesting combination. I would only purchase it if the owner allowed you to see if it groups well.
    Custom guns are always a gamble. They are never a safe investment.
    Please don’t let a comment from Iowa reflect the attitude of most members of this forum.

    That was my feeling.
    I’m passing on this one.
