Lightbulb Devine 000651

Just acquired a Devine. 000651 came with:
Bipods, original finish, stock is in excellent condition, 8 mags, and 2 scope mounts.
Here's a link to a few pics: http://s556.photobucket.com/user/wat...?sort=3&page=1

Please refrain from using the Firing Line as a substitute for each individuals responsibility. Any threads asking for a value will be deleted with this Sticky.

Also if you should decide to answer one of those questions, please refrain from giving a value. Without seeing the item in your own hands, you can be doing an injustice to either the buyer or seller by stating a value.

You can research the Sold Classified Listings (SPF) below here which has over 7,200 listings, or other auction sites across the internet to come up with a general price for an item(s).

Thanks from Delta8

Very nice rifle. This is not a slam, just info in case you are not aware. The barreled assembly has apparently been reparked since the Devine address is not in the white (the address was originally stamped after the barrel was parked).

I appreciate the input, but as I just spoke with Mr. Balance on the phone earlier today that was one of the questions I had asked him. He said that the white lettering wouldn't mean anything one way or another. He said "I had 4-5 ppl building these guns at the time and they all did it slightly different. Some were roll stamped, some where hand stamped, some were engraved, some were white, and some weren't."

Thanks from Deacon
