I scored a 76 model today for $275, What a fine rifle. I've cleaned her up and scoped it with a Nikon 2-7x32. Its like brand new.
They just don't make them like that anymore. No rattling of the lifter at all.
I know what ya mean.... I got a '76 in .35RemOriginally Posted by JohnnyLoco

Man, it might be the end of the week before any pics, if at all, it ain't that special to me.
I wonder in thirty years will folks be taking our scopes off and chunking them in the trash like I did the Bushnell banner that came on it?
I've already given the rifle to my youngest son a few minutes ago.
I was thinking the same thing today - the stuff we throw away was pretty decent glass back in the day (I may be being a bit nostalgic). I give mine to the props department at work - they use them on the drop guns.I wonder in thirty years will folks be taking our scopes off and chunking them in the trash like I did the Bushnell banner that came on it?
How about the next one you bring it down to houston? :POriginally Posted by JohnnyLoco

America was founded by tough hell raisers, rugged American citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer and moonshine, and smuggled weapons; it will be saved only by those who do the same today.
Johnny, I have a 1976 Glenfield 30A that is a great shooting gun. It has the typical Glenfield birch stock, but it shoots quite well with 150 gr Federals.
I'm going to put it up for sale along with my 1983 Glenfield in the Rifles for Sale section.
