Anyone familiar with Ithaca / BSA rifles?

I recently inherited my Father-in-law's Elk rifle, a 300 WM bolt gun made by BSA and imported by Ithaca. From what I can find online it looks to be from 1976-78. Does anyone have information about these? It's a nice looking rifle!

Here are a couple tidbits I've found online:
Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSA_CF2)
BSA CF2 action (http://books.google.com/books?id=tuVUMLRE47UC&pg=PA221&lpg=PA221&dq=ithaca+BSA+rifles&source=bl&ots=tHHtDYpjHE&sig=Tskfp2YrFA2JdT2rQOsyXOOFFrI&hl=en&ei=5D5TS8b7NYz4sQPq6oSEDQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CAkQ6AEwATgK#v=onepage&q=ithaca%20BSA%20rifles&f=false)

I'd like to keep shooting it, maybe rebarrel it as I think the rifling is burnt out towards the end of the barrel (rod stops spinning when I push a jag & patch through it). Thanks in advance for any insight :)

Only thing I know about Birmingham Small Arms is that their rifles are better made than their motorcycles were.
