The 700 BDL SS is the best value rifle you can buy. The bore and muzzle look great. there is a small mark on the bottom of the magazine and one on the barrel by the muzzle end(see photos). I do not think a deer or elk will notice the small marks. This is a great rifle and caliber for all north american game. If you are looking for a great hunting rifle this is it. The Scope, rings and bases not included. They have been sold since the photos were taken. After the gun has been fired you can not return it. shipping includes insurance.
