I saw your post and congratulations on the great deal. You easily saved yourself a couple hundred bucks. If you have a hankering for a 30-30 (and who doesn't , I would definitely use that rifle and if you decide to sell it a few years down the road, I doubt you'd have a problem getting your money back (or in fact, a bit more), especially if you keep the box and bits.Originally Posted by Golfbuddy45
I don't see a whole lot of long term (say in 10 or 20 years) collector's value in the rifle because it's a regular production "budget" version of the 336, and there are a lot floating around. I think the best way to get value out of your purchase is to use and enjoy the rifle, while taking care of it.
