Think they will be available anytime soon? Closest I've found in local shops is the 1895GBL, but I'd prefer the 30-30 instead of the 45-70. I may jump on the 1895 though. With a xs rail and ghost ring sight it would look pretty intimidating.
Where are you located? There are a couple for sale in the South Dakota area. I have one with the XS scout scope base, burris scout scope and skinner peep sight setup. You can't get much better for a brush gun.
jongunz, I kinda second your emotion. My local gun store has one and I liked the laminate on it so much, I ordered a set to replace the birch stock(s) on my old 30AS. I hope you are able to snag a BL for yourself.
So what does /should a 30-30 BL go for? There's a like new, used one on consignment at my local shop but the owner wants $525 for it. That seems a little steep.... It sure is neat withthe short barrel and laminated stocks though!
