My 2011 M70 SG in .270 set me back $1500 with my VX 3 on top. It shoots am a king out past 500yds. I bought this as my long range hunter and as the gun to pass to my oldest (7yrs old) many moons from now.
Its I'd very pretty. The barrel is like a black mirror. That said I will hunt it hard while I have it and any marks it gains will be reminders to my boys that this fine gun is a tool. Not a toy or a work of art.
All that said any future gun will most likely be standard grade.
