Came by a CL at the gun show Saturday-NIB abd I do mean NIB-best I have seen with sleeve. Paid 675-How did I do? Gun is 1970
I think you dun good. I'd have trouble walking away from it. Looking to get me one. Will probably have to sell a Mountie to get it though... dernit.

I think you did fine especially if that is the model you wanted. Just so you can guage I picked up a Century Ltd. a while back for $475 which was in great condition. I would not call it new as it did have a few dings in the stock and the finish on the Century Ltd. models does mark easilly. It was barely shot when I bought it but that was because it would not cycle correctly. I figured the issue out and now it runs great.
So if the gun truly is new I think you did fine and most of all if you are happy with it who cares what you paid. A couple years and thousands of rounds later you will care less what you paid.
