    Skipping one candy bar a day from the vending machine turns into $365 after a year, $366 if it's a leap year.

    What great guns have you recently seen or gotten for $365 or less:

    Here is my favorite, a 1934 Remington 31R:

    Exactly. There are really great guns out there that do not cost an arm an a leg.

    A few of my favorite firearms are Sub 365 $ aquisitions (it doesn't hurt to buy used)

    Ruger 10" Target MKII


    Remington 41 target master


    Henry Mare's leg


    Glenfield Model 60 rescued from a local pawn shop

    And a little finish wear usually will not change the point of aim or any other important feature.

    Check Bud's Gun Shopeb site for a S&W Model 10 trade in. I looked a few of these the other day. Some had some finish/holster wear but they all locked up like Ft. Knox and had cood triggers and bright bores. Also, he had a Stevens bolt rifle (Model 200 ?) in .30-06,used but it looked brand new. It had rings and a 4X12 Redfield scope and was,IIRC, $279.00.

    Stevens 311
    Ruger 10/22
    Mauser k98
    Enfield Mk I
    Charles Daly HP
    Charter Arms Bulldog

    To name a few.

    Of course these are used prices but that is what I try to buy unless I can't find something that I really want.

    Hello friends and neighbors // Nice finds folks, quality used firearms are everywhere.
    Some shops just try to charge near new prices for shooters, go to another shop.

    I am fortunate to frequent the same 7+ shops monthly and hit some extra shops when on the road.
    Some shops it is unfortunate to see what they try to charge but check them anyway.
    I know of one that has high prices on everything but revolvers, another that sells older shotguns at very low prices. Different shops respect different firearms.

    Most recent in that price range, $365 tax and all:

    Remington, 870 ,Wingmaster, 1953, VG, 12ga., ------------------------------ $224.70

    Remington, 870, Express Super Mag., Turkey Cammo, 2005, VG, 12ga. ---- $340.00

    S&W, 586, 4", 1983, F (blemished finish on one side ) .357/.38 ---------------------------- $353.00

    Dan Wesson, 14, 2", $1976??, VG ( action too tight,barrel too close to cylinder but mostly just new) .357/.38------------- $294.00 + one hour cleaning and adjusting.

    BTW nice Rem. 31, RIOT "roller bearing action", I have not seen one with a riot barrel.

    My last 31 purchase was a 1948, 16ga. with the aluminum rec.
    I was on the road,Penn./Maryland border, popped into a GS and they had two 31s which is rare.
    The 16ga., upon inspection, was loaded ...rarer still.. they came down on the already fair price $25.00, too rare to pass on.

    It also comes in low enough and is reliable enough to fit this thread.:D

    Remington 870 20 ga. Rem choke, for sale in a shop near me for $275. It's parked and in great shape. I wanted an older blued gun, but I'm tempted.
