I saw one in the store today. At first I thought it was one of the new ones. I'm pretty sure he said Lithgow was the manufacturer (or remanufacturer). Are these anything to look at? What should a fair price be? For what its worth, the wood, trigger guard, floorplate, and underside of barrel looked brand spanking new. I didn't ask to see it because it was busy and I was after something else...

Investment cast receiver that has been over hardened combined with refinished USGI / Berretta part. Stocks are new. Prices are in the $600-650 range (retail).

Thanks for the info OSA. Are they worth it for a good shooter?

Unless you are looking for a pretty wall-hanger, I would stay away from the Lithgow. These rifles are not really made by the original Lithgow Arsenal. It is a new company that is squatting on a trusted name sorta like Springfield Armory in Illinois is doing.

Buy an original.
