This pretty rifle just sits in the safe, so it's up for sale.

1970's model BSA (Birmingham Small Arms) bolt action 30-06. Imported by Eagle Arms, NY, NY.

I believe the model is a CF2.

Overall a well finished, beautiful and accurate rifle!

Looks to have been fired very little. I have shot it 11 times.


Pros:
- 100% factory.
- 22" barrel
- 14" LOP
- 2 position safety, bolt is locked when safety is on.
- Trigger pull is very nice at around 4 pounds, a bit creepy, but looks to be adjustable (there is an allen screw at the trigger base).
- bluing is very nice! very deep and well finished
- Floor plate is BDL style
- Palm swell on grip is perfect (IMO)
- Bolt shroud has red cocking indicator (See pics)
- Folding rear sight

- Rem 700 scope bases fit 100%
- bore is bright and shiny
- Action screws are mint. I don't think they have been turned since they left the factory.


Flaws:

- A few scratches and safe dings in the stock finish, they don't show well in the pictures, but they are there.
- bluing thinning at muzzle

-slight milling flaw near muzzle, it's blued so it was done at the factory, doesn't show well, but it's there.

-bolt has some very slight discoloration
-white line spacer on fore end tip sit's about 1/32" proud.
-speckling in finish where the scope mounts were.

Accuracy:

I threw some Rem 700 bases and rings on it and put on a proven scope and tried 3 flavors of factory ammo at 100 yards.


Federal Blue Box 180. 3 shots inside of a Quarter.


Winchester 180. 3 shots inside of a Quarter.


Remington 165. Craptastic!

$460 shipped to your FFL from a private party. USPS Money Order. If we have done business prior then any form of payment will do.

A public "I'll take it" trumps tire kickers.

If I've missed something, ask away.

I've been asked if this is the "Monarch Featherweight" model. The answer is "I don't know".

The 22" barrel contour is very similar to a Winchester 70 Featherweight contour.

There is not a mark or stamp on it that identifies the model.

The barrel shows the BSA stamp with 3 crossed rifles, and the caliber.

I simply don't know much about the BSA rifles, so I can't say with certainty what model this is.
