    Smith and Wesson 1700LS??

    Hey all.. anyone have any experience or ever owned a Smith & Wesson 1700LS Bolt Action 30-06?? I have a chance to buy one from a co-worker for a pretty cheap price. (He's throwing in a scope, gun locker and hard case too...)

    I've researched the rifle and know that its made by Howa (japan) for S&W but I was just curious as to anyone's experience with it. Thanks.

    It's a great rifle. I recently went through a Weatherby Vanguard (same gun) and did a deep cleaning for a friend, I would have no hesitation buying one for a good price.

    I got the rifle this morning with a hard case (ugly green..lol) and a steel, 7 gun, gun cabinet for $250 bucks. I think I did good...lol Rifle needs a little TLC but is nice. Its my first bolt action rifle.

    Since you are in a firearm non friendly state, I will be glad to purchase this future thorn in your side so you won't loose any money when they confiscate it.

    But seriously yes Rambo, I think others will think you did good and I for one am one of those. Pictures and a range report would be very nice also. BTW, what kind of scope came with it?

    For $250 you did well. Did you get an extra mag or just the one?

    I have had one in .270 since 1977 and love it, but would love another clip, any ideas on where I could find one
