*shrug*

I had plenty of fun with mine, crap or not

I just wouldn't take one hunting again without going all the way through it about 8 times, and quadruple checking it for reliability....


(to me, that goes for any used gun, really...)

sorry, didn't mean to offend.

I check big 5 regularly and still remain unimpressed.

If you like c&r guns, get the license. besides cheap guns you get discounts almost everywhere i.e., Brownells, Midway etc. I have bought 9 guns since the first of the year, all but 3 were keepers. 6 were 91/30's, kept 3, all with exceptional bores, nice wood and metal finish, didn't spend more than $75 each, including shipping.

the savings from one order will more than pay for the license.

don't believe all the stories, I had my license in 4 weeks, no one has shown up to inspect, my phone isn't tapped, big brother hasn't taken control of my life.

I should have had this years ago.

if you can get a moisin that was remanufactured by the Finns youl'l get a superior firearm.The Finns wouldn,t issue a nagant unless it would group 13/8 at a hundred. They install their own triggers, sights, and free-float a new forestock. My barrel is marked Sako.Incidentally, the finns have a national hero (whose name I can't pronounce) whowas a sniper during WW2. If mwmory serves me right,his bodycount was well in excess of 200-both Russians and Germans. The M/N is the longest serving bolt action rifle in any military. Oh yeah, I've returned 2 rifles to Big 5. Had to pound the bolt open with a block of wood. Poor bores, bulged chambers

I'm a big Mauser fan. My first rifle was a sporterized Spanish Mauser in 7mm. Still have it. I dropped lots of deer with that thing.

I know have 6 or seven of 'em.

Don't know if this rifle interests you Oly, but it's for sale;

Model 98 Mauser, Oberndorf Russian capture sporterized. 8mm (very close to 30-06 balistics) Weaver scope (nothing fancy, but it works well). Absolutely awesome condition.




There are tons of great choices out there for sure. Nothing wrong with a Savage at all.

Honestly, if you are looking primarily at long range target shooting/plinking (A&B) I'd look at a smaller caliber.. .270, 22-250, etc..

**EDIT; Just thought of somethin.. 25-06. Damn near the best of both worlds... 30-06 case, smaller caliber.. fast, straight, flat....
