An area pawnshop was having a special sale today so I drove over. At first, was looking at a Marlin that I could not identify -- turned out to be a Model 88 .22 auto rifle, made in late 50s, loaded with a tube in the stock. Excellent condition, $89, but I passed. I did, however, put a near-mint 60SS, 2004 serial number, grey laminate stock, on layaway for $150, marked down from $199. Got a thing about stainless guns down here in humid Louisiana.

Super find! I like shiny too. But mostly because it's shiny, not due to the rust resistive characteristics.
