Why buy used rifles?
well theres a great many used rifles that are no longer available new,
a good many rifles that are no longer made were much better quality than the off the shelf, modern rifles.
while there are exceptions most entry level rifles are not well fitted, or exceptionally accurate,
nor do the feed and function as smoothly,
it takes time and experience to know, and fully appreciate, the differences, as too,
why a browning or a colt saur, or weatherby or sako
costs more than your average Stevens,marlin,savage,or Winchester
sure you can hunt and kill game with the entry level rifles, its a functional tool.
but you don,t get the same feel, or pride of ownership or in many cases consistent accuracy
