Pick Up the NEF Sportster For a Song?
New England Firearms Sportster in 17 Mach 2 is a great little gun, according to the January 2008 issue of Gun Tests, which rated it as an A pick. The problem is the speciality gun may be hard to find. But a search of Gunbroker.com found a single gun, whose price was below the $169 MSRP found in the GT article.
On Thursday Aug. 14, there were no bids on a no-reserve auction in Auction # 106706340, due to expire 8/16 @ 1:34 p.m. The astute or lucky shopper might pick this one up for a song.
In the Gun Tests review, the testers commented, " t might difficult to explain why a gun limited to one shot between reloads is so much fun, but well try. First, its a pleasure to hold and fun to break open. It is so simple to use that anyone can operate the Sportster, and it is capable of rewarding even the beginning shooter with outstanding accuracy.
