    No pictures as it's still on the rack.;) But it's in .30 WCF, Nice bore, and roughly 70-75% bluing, and full length tube. It's also mislabeled as a 336...

    Sounds high to me for a 70-75% gun made before 1949, but I haven't kept up with the prices on the Model 36. Is it an -A or an -ADL (deluxe)? The 336 is reportedly a stronger gun if that matters to you.

    I may have been a little harsh on the bluing estimates, but then again I really didn't look all that closely. It really only caught my attention because of the tag saying, "336 RC.:D" Maybe I'll take a trip back tomorrow, because Lord knows I need another .30-30..

    Check the bolt. If it's a square bolt, and the rifle is all there in good working condition I'd jump on it at that price. If it's a round bolt with the fat foreend, I'd pass...I bought several of them for $150-$250 depending on condition and mag tube length.
