i just finished my latest project. I cleaned up and restored a Remington Model 16. Except now I need a new project. Any ideas on what to pick up next? I don't like to drop a ton of cash, so something readily available would be great. Let me know if you guys have any ideas!

Interested in black powder??

You can build a fine looking m/l rifle from Track of the Wolf; TVM; DGW; or many others.

Draco SBR. Maybe not your style but there are all kinds of possibilities. Below are just a few ideas.

how about a levergun,i bought a marlin 336 30/30,1980 model in real descent shape for 200.00 with a pile of ammo,i"m gonna have the barrell shortened from 20" to 16.75 or 17" or so trapper length,make a neat project,also found a glenfield 30 half mag 30/30 ,looks like a guide gun ,i think is what they called them. cheap 175.00. tempted.good luck.
