RE: winchester model 88

I saw one at the store near my house and it looks like a pretty interesting piece. Thinking about buying it... it's in .308 and has a Weaver fixed-power scope on top. Anyone think that is worth the...

RE: Remington 870 value

I just bought a synthetic-stocked one last summer, used with a 28" barrel, for $230. Got a cantilever slug barrel for $180 too a year before that (at the time I was borrowing my friend's 870 until I...

RE: Winchester Model 70 questions

Gotcha. I was mainly looking for a centerfire rifle I could shoot for fun, but I saw this and just had to look into it. If I verify it is a pre-1964 Model 70 and it's $450, I don't think I will be...

You would still have to do this if it was a pre-64 barrel on a pre-64 receiver? My thoughts behind getting a .30-06 barrel is it would be less expensive to shoot, and I wouldn't be wearing the...
