SOLD

I was given this rifle from a uncle in 1990 and he got it in 1962. its been in a safe the last 50 yrs. Hate to sell but here it is. $500.00 or best offer (new price on 6/7/11).
Let me know what you think of the price even if you can't buy it. Prices for this model are all over the place. Will ship thru FFL at buyers expense. Thanks for looking.

Harry -

I think of the stock as an example of American Folk Art.
Maybe not the prettiest folk art BUT still something someone felt would individualize their "working" rifle.
Probably done during the 1930's Depression by someone with some time on their hands - i.e. out of work.
The caliber isn't 30-30 so you really are looking for a guy that reloads to pay the price.
I would imagine that since it was introduced, the demand/supply of 32 WS Ammo has meant that it has been more expensive than 30-30.
So more than likely this rifle has only been shot to put meat on the table, and therefore has a good bore.
Lower the price a little and wait it out for the right buyer. It may be long term but he's out there ;-)

Thanks Dave, I understand the carving lowers the value but like you said, knowing a guy in the Great Depression area was doing this seems cool all in it self. I'm lowering the price again. Thx for the info guys.

Sure is! I started pretty high (1000.00) and I've lowered it a few times. How about $500.00?
