Default Barrett Fieldcraft

Does anyone in the Edmonton area own one of these? I would be interested in seeing one & handling one, if possible before I make a decision to buy one? Also does anyone on here anywhere have one for sale?
Thanks

I hear good things. I really want one in 223 but the company put the 223 fieldcraft on the back burner because they where awarded a 50 million dollar military contract. So who knows when they will make the 223 priority again. I guess they made it a 1:7 twist and a micro action that didnít have space to feed the heavy .22 anyway. Hope they scratch the micro action next go around.
