You guys are putting a hankering on me to get a First Lite in 240.

Go for it Roger!

I have a 240 wby in the Accuguard. I love that gun! Never got to shoot game with it yet but I recommend getting one. It is a joy to shoot.

I use Buds. They have a 90 day layaway so your wife or girlfriend wouldnt get pissed spending all the money at once.

Ouch.I have never had any problems with them.Did they tell you there would be a wait when you ordered?

No it went right to the shipping department within an hour. That's the fastest that ever happened with the handful of rifles I ordered from them.  I saw that on their site the next day.

I have been waiting 2 weeks for my rifle to ship from there! 8)

I thought "it" was just a troll using several names .

I liked reading some of his stories though.

If you get it. please let us know how it shoots.  I have 2 T/C Compass rifles.  The triggers ain't nothing to praise, but both are sub moa.  :)

I am going to order it tonight from Buds.  I wish they came in 204 Ruger but the 22-250 will work. It looks like a pretty nice rifle!

I purchased a new Patriot with the wood stock last September in .300 win mag. A local gun shop going out of business because of retirement. It is a well finished rifle with the fluted 22” barrel. I picked it up for $300. The trigger is okay, not great and it needs a better recoil pad. The accuracy is good with Hornady 180 SST. One inch 3 shot groups. It’s a lightweight rifle. The wood checkering is perfect and gives a firm, solid grip. The quality of the wood is superb and metal to wood fit is excellent. It really looks like a $500 stock. A friend has the same gun in .308 and prefers it over his Remington 700 bdl .280 AI and his synthetic stock Remington 700 adl 7 mag. I trust his opinion. I purchased it as a loaner for relatives who show up with an inaccurate rifle on the day before a hunt or if they show up and want to use one of my Weatherby’s.

Does it feel cheap? Is the only plastic the detachable mag?

Im looking into a Mossberg Patriot 22-250 with a walnut stock. They look like pretty cool guns with the spiral vented bolts and fluted barrels.  I see they are $450 with a Vortex Crossfire II scope. This is for my son to get use to shooting guns and will become Dads new coyote rifle! 8)

Thats a great looking stock for that kind of money. Think it was a steal.

Thanks Danno! I agree, for less than $200 you couldnt go wrong.

The stock is beautiful, for being used it was in perfect shape with no dents or scratches! The stock has alittle more character than my vanguard deluxe in 300 wby. Its hard to tell from the pictures. It just dropped right in, no sanding at all! The barrel is slightly free floating but just barely and I am going to see how she shoots before I would sand some of it down.

I won my first ever Weatherby at a raffle. I was just a kid, just starting to hunt. It was a Vanguard in .308. I shot my first buck with it too!

I won it for $177.50
Cool!! Let me know how it fits together and if you need to make any inletting mods. I'm thinking as long as the barrel contour matches the channel, you should be good.

Are you going to glass bed it?

I'll let you know and post pics when its together. I installed Boyds stock on 3 other rifles (2 were a vanguard and vanguard s2) both only needed minor fitting. 

Ill see how it shoots. As long as the groups aren't terrible. I only use my rifles to hunt and don't get to shoot much. Especially now with a 2 year old son.
