Soon these will be available... will you buy one, and why?

It'll be an awesome rifle, gorgeous, expensive, but non restricted in a big game hunting calibre. But would you really pack it into the bush for moose or elk?
It will be much heavier than some hunting rifles (my Cooper in .308 is just over 7 lbs, and the swiss will be closer to 9).
If I had the extra dough, I'd get one just because.... but I'm not sure what I would do with it most.
It's just tempting to look at and drool over.

I'd buy one for sure, the Swiss classic green is a fantastic rifle, and given the oppertunity to own one in 308, that's something I can't pass up

Yup pic works, and the sapr is beautiful, I actually forgot that this was close to coming to cdn soil and went a little deep into a couple m14's and a complete garand m1d that I found by chance, so this one will be on the want list instead of the have list. At least for a bit anyway

I got me a good one and she gets a kick out seeing the new metal coming into the house lol . And I know she sees how much my black special gets used and I think one in 308 would be cool

Hey, Canpop
Can't you just be satisfied with your M-1 carbine? I mean you just got that. What more could you want in a rifle? :Bang head:

I reckon I'll have to be content for now.... my daughter gets married in two months, and I won't be buying anything for some time after that!

I'll wait, maybe you and I can get a deal on two at once? :)

Not trying to be negative, and I'd be all for a group buy price break. However these things will fly off the shelves for at least the first year or two, I don't see there being much price breaks while demand overrides supply. That and my research shows the importer is only looking for a few hundred over swiss MSRP, don't know if that leaves much room to move.

If they did move though I'd be all in.

Just my $0.02.

Just got called out

Fill your hand you sunova b$%^h? what did you do to get on the dukes bad side? You didn't call him a one eyed fat man did ya? He HATES that!! Kidding aside, I love the rifle, but I agree with loki, I think they are going to be hard to keep on shelves for a bit.

Hey Canpop I changed my mind about the Swiss Arms in .308. Upon reflection I figure it's too small. Need something bigger for my gnarly hands. Have settled on this: Sig 511-2. This will fill my hand!

I think you may have seen one western too many! LOL Although your interpretation is much more interesting than just going back to work.
