I have been doing well lately and not buying any more rifles although buying revolvers is just as bad or maybe worse as they cost even more most times. Well today I walked into a pawn shop in Ocala and the is a J C Higgins model 45 in 30-30. Made in 58-59. Tried to leave it as they would not come down from $499. as they had only had it on the rack for a hour. Left the store got in the truck then though better and went back and bought it. I guess I needed it as I have a old Redfield peep sight I need to put on something. The stock has been painted with something but not sanded down so it should refinish nice. Metal looks unmolested and screws are not damaged.
