    Paid $200?
    The pictures look more like $1000.

    tallpaul,

    The next picture we should see related to this is YOUR'S in the POST OFFICE! Just joking out of jealousy. Jimminey, $200 for that. Good deal!

    Thanks for sharing it with us. Now go shoot it.

    Oh and a broke down picture would be nice. I'd have to make a sheath for the two halves even if it was just the legs of some old blue jeans stitched up. You know just so I could pull it out in two pieces and assemble it in front of folks at the range. "Where does he get his toys?"

    That is the price I have noticed them going for....north of $700 for one worth having.

    That is always fun ... I enjoy doing that with the ole Sten gun... take it out in pieces - put it together n shoot it... Folks notice :) I am thinking a proper case but I have a really long list of "someday projects" not that ANY of ya can understand that:) This actually was not on my radar or BOLO lists and just like a Squirrel it appeared and messed up my attention :p

    I really did not think it was going to clean up so good... the stock has some dings n scratches from honest hunting. I did not think it would be worth so much cleaned up either... it seems like a cool ol' rifle. If she shoots good it will likely stay for a while

    That rifle for $200... that's the Deal of the Century! Cleaned up very nicely for a 90 year old hunting rifle! Now on to the range and more pics!

    I know where I can get a Savage 30/30... but I have TWO Marlin Texan 30/30s already!!! And a Winchester pre-64 .32 Winchester Special.

    But I'd love to get one. Congrats and a real good gun you got!

    tallpaul, you got a superb deal, I've been looking for one in 300 Savage for quite awhile, however, I too load for 30-30 and cast 2 different weight (150-170grn with gas checks) RCBS molds, and would jump on a 30-30, especially for that price.

    "Before" didn't look very "rough" to me. After is even better. You stole it at that price. Congrats. Even if the bore is not so hot, a 30-30 will usually give acceptable accuracy. I have heard that a .32 Win Spl usually will not, but I've never owned one, so I can't say.

    You got a GREAT! deal. Congrates and enjoy it. I'd love a M99 30-30 to go with my Marlins and Winchesters. 30-30 is a great cast bullet round.

    Naw I know it started with 35. Maybe it was 35 Remington. I just know I got it as a gift. I was sad I couldn't find ammo for it. Eventually I sold it to pay a bill. It was a pretty rifle hate I never got to shoot it.

    I thought I was robbing the guy when I got my 99 30-30 for $450. You done great. I love my Marlins, but I think the 99 is one of the finest lever guns made

    To me the 99 IS finest levergun ever made, barely edging out the Sako Finnwolf. A Savage 99 in 250-3000 is at the top of my bucket list.

    I think you will enjoy it. :thumbup:
