Ha ha, here's one to egg you on a little further.
True, but the good news is there is still tons of good old Marlin 336s out there. Got this one last week at a Pawn Shop in near new condition for $350. Made in 1957 (no crossbolt safety, which is what I was looking for), it has a factory Williams rear peep sight. Fantastic. Action was a little stiff at first, but it is quickly becoming butter smooth. I don't think this one was fired much at all. Love the balance and pointability of this old 30-30. I see why everyone likes these fine guns so much.
'Course, tomorrow I'm picking up my son's Christmas gift. Orderd him a Crickett from Bud's, so I'll have to post pictures of that when it arrives.
That was a great snag.
I just picked up a Savage 340C in 30-30. It's my first new gun since I picked up the new Ruger SR1911 two years ago (well, the Ruger WAS new at the time I picked it up). Both good guns at good prices. I'd be greedy to ask for anything more.
Actually it was my Mossberg 500, and before that the M&P9 Pro.
Like the rest of my guns it has enough dings and bumps to make it ripe for more shooting -- but not enough to bother me.
Dating it by the serial number, it's supposed to have been made in 1911.
springfield savage semi auto 12 GA
Pre WWI savage arms semi-auto 12 GA. Marked Springfield over Savage? 4 digit # for 105 out the door. Walked in LGS and just put on consign for 75. Said I WILL TAKE IT!
I'm really liking it so far with its excellent fit and finish. Nice crisp 3.5 lb trigger.
Now to work up some loads and see what it likes.
I am getting just over an inch with 180 grain core lokt factory ammo.
I won't bother you with purchases for resale but my own personal purchase was a Ruger Old Army cap and ball. Wanted one for years and a guy walked up to my table at the gunshow last sunday and had nice one. Can't wait to shoot it.
