Saw a 36 Sporting Carbine saturday. It looks to be a third variation at about 87% blueing and 90% wood. Caliber is 30-30. The only problem I see is the buttplate which seems to be of recent manufacture. Would this rifle be priced fairly in the $400-$500 range :?: Don't want to screw the guy that has it but don't want to get stuck either :!:

Seems a trifle high for a 36. That much for might be okay for a 1936. SW

I'm with Hogger. I'd guess it should be more in the $350 range.

The guy wants a stainless synthetic Ruger 7744 for it ..... don't believe I can get one of those for $350 :(

Thanks , MM93 :D I think in the near future I will have to break into the HIGH DOLLAR world of the 1881's and original 1895's. Guesse I'll have to start working a lot of OT :!:

I forgot to mention the gun also has a Williams reciever sight, not my first choice but cheaper then buying a Lyman :D

Well it all comes around sometime, if you're patient, and keep actively looking. Even that 1881, or 1895 may come your way some time!
