Short mag tube? I paid more for my 36, and have no regrets on paying it at all. Don't know where you are located and prices seem to vary quite a bit around the country. Where I am, missing finish and scratches in the wood along with surface rust will be on the shelf for 395 and you MIGHT get 25 off in the bargain. DP
Think I will let it sit on the shelf at the pawn shop for a couple weeks then make a move. Already have my .35 and a Model 14 in .30 so I ain't woods gun poor by any means. Got a 1903 Springfield project in work, too.
