My state has such crummy gun laws, that I rarely get to help any of my MO brethren. Well today I am in my LGS and they have a very nice 1897 for sale. I think it was $850 but they also have 20% off on it due to a spring sale. That gets it down to $680 which is a pretty good price. If I was not on the hunt for another old .30-30 or a .45-70, I might have grabbed it. PM me for info if you are interested.
