Default Best deal you ever got on a gun?

I always hear of guys getting great deals but it never happens to me.
Until this Aug. at a gun show. I had taken my S&W model 686 plus with me to find rings and a scope to go on it. I passed a table with about 14 or 15 rifles on it. The older gentleman sitting there wanted to buy the handgun but I told him it was not for sale. He then offered any rifle on his table for it,with the exception of 2 sakos. I am now the proud owner of a Rem. 40x in 222 mag. The gun is in absoulte mint condition. I paid $475 for the S&W and have been offered $1000 for the 222mag. Lets hear your best deal!

I have stumbled across a few good deals on guns but my best deal was for a browning .243 eurobolt with boss. I was working the sporting goods department at a local retail store and a guy had ordered it and left a deposit of 100 dollars on it, well when it came in he backed out on the deal and lost his 100 dollars. A couple months later christmas time came around and they were going to get ride of a few of the guns they had laying around so the manager market it down to 425 from 450 wich was already 100 dollars off from the guys deposite. I used my 20% off christmas discount on it for a out the door price of $362. I got a boss CR for $15 and rings and a 4-14x44 scope for another $80 bucks and ended up with the most accurate bolt gun I had ever shot for a grand total of $457. I dialed the boss in with 100gr Sierra SBT federal premiums loads and it will shoot honest .75-1" groups all day long at 100 yards. I have killed 5 whitetails, 2 fox, and a coyote with it from ranges of 70-320 yards. My next best deal was a nearly new Raging bull 454 cassul, got it for $300 from a friend of my dads, he couldn't handle the muzzle blast.

I got a Savage 116, a Remington 788 action, a Browning A-5 Magnum with no forearm and a busted stock, and a Browning 16 gauge all for a Springfield model 67 shotgun with a modified choke that would shoot 00 buckshot like a slug.

My best deal on a gun that I have bought is a Custom Sako (I bought it used). It has a new barrel, custom stock, the blueing is just beautiful and I got it for only $600.Its worth atleast twice if not more then what I've payed for it. Its chambered in 7mm Rem Mag and it shoots great!!

I bought a Winchester 88 .308 in excellent condition off a guy that bought it in 1958 for $175, I asked him what he wanted for it and he said $175. First I peed my pants, then I gave him $175.

I once purchased a Model 70 Super Grade in .375 H&H made in 1949 from a Captain at Ft. Wainwright Alaska for $125.00. It had a Lyman Alaskan scope in a Jaeger side mount and a Lyman No. 48 receiver sight on it. Seems this guy traded a M 12 Win. shotgun for the rifle at a road house in Canada as he was driving up the Alcan Highway, got to AK with the rifle, fired it two or three times, and decided he liked his .243 a lot better!! I later traded this rifle for a Grade IV BAR. BIG MISTAKE!! Live & learn!!

Keep yore powder dry!!

A guy I worked with wanted a 5hp outboard that I had in my shed. He bugged me and bugged me about it. He then offered me his LEFT-HANDED Rem 760 in .270 even up for the motor. The motor was older than dirt and was air-cooled so it sounded like an airplane.

Not only did I get rid of the motor, I got the ultimate deer gun. I'm a lefty, so that was just a bonus!

Not a great deal, but the best I've gotten I guess...bought a german made spanish mauser .308 (forget what model at the moment) for $75, has a springfield barrel on it, and a sporterized stock. Had $30 in work done to glass it and replace the flag safety with one that would function with the glass on, then sold it for $225 at a gun show. Kinda wish I didn't, since it was probably the most accurate non-heavy barreled rifle I'd ever seen, but I didn't need it anymore.

Screw the 10 ring, keep them in the zero!!!
