Kind of a BTT...anybody order one or get one yet??

CDNN has FN Patrol Bolt Rifles at pretty good prices, around 35-40% of current internet pricing. Chambering is either .308 or .300WM, stocks are Hogue in black or green, barrels go from 16-24" (fluted or plain), and you can pick detachable mag or floorplate.

If you can find a non-CA FFL who will ship to CA, it's a pretty good deal...I just picked up 2 this morning.

I pick mine up from Gussler's here in San Diego on Friday. After convincing the folks at at CDNN that I wasn't trying to make a "straw purchase" it was on its way.

I used Freakshow Manufacturing as the transfer FFL. He's on file with both CDNN and Gussler's.

Painless transaction.

Is this advertised in their catalog?

yes... but the catalog says POR (price on request) so you'll have to call tomorrow to find out, or someone who bought one can let us know how much they paided.

are they offering it at enough of a discount, not to buy the barreled action and stock separate? (they have it listed for $399.99 for the action and $99.99 for the stock if you buy them separate)

Call Chuck at CDNN tomorrow (pls. tell him the guy in ID referred you).

Depending on variation, you're in the neighborhood of $600-800; shipping is free with $3/gun for adult signature. Rifles come with a set of cheap Chinese 30mm rings and, get this, a CA-compliant gun lock:)

Chuck never mentioned straw purchase; I gave him my cc info and got my ffl to fax her license. He said he'd ship anywhere (other than CA) as long as the license was on file...no mention was made of my cc billing address in CA. Guns were ordered last Tuesday, they arrived today.

Glad it's running smoothly. I've got 16 of these FN rifles and actions shipping out to California tomorrow. You guys must love them.:D

They are a great deal...I have had mine for about a month and a half just sitting here waiting on a McMillan and CDI BM.Plus the cdnn actions are in a way a collectible due to them being produced at ye olde(closed) winchester factory

There is no link on their site. You have to download the catalog and go to page 26 (I think that is the correct page).

www.cdnninvestments.com ...go there and download the catalog...allow some time.

Still the price is por, you need to call and get a price. You also have to have your ffl's license on file (ez-check is no-go) before they'll ship. They will take your cc info and keep what you need ready to ship. They'll ship the same day if they get the license via fax before noon. CDNN is extremely easy to work with, though I know they get a little of the bad-mouth since they won's ship guns to CA.

Finished rifles (with Hogue aluminum-bedded stocks) are not CT guns, what they still have in barreled actions may be, I'd ask. I was more looking for a stock that I could both hunt and target shoot with, so a McMillan may be in the distant future for me but it's no big deal now.

Also, be aware that CDNN specials do not tend to last:eek:; they're the masters of closeouts and factory 2nd's and LE trade-ins, but you need to MOVE NOW if you want a PBR. Call Chuck and see what's left, if anything. Speaking from personal experience here;).

This was their email special that got me started, but be advised I got the email on 9/4 or 9/5. Italics are mine...

Hope this helps ya' & hope there's some left...
