This is my older Glenfield carbine we named Meat-Maker. It has toppled many mulies since I bought it in 1979. None got away. 30-30 is a keeper!

Unique features include squared lever, steel nose cap instead of barrel band, beech stock, pressed checkering.

If that's what I think it is, a Glenfield 36GT, then you've got a collector there too! There weren't many of those made and I just found one after several years of hunting for one. Nice rifle! :shock: :)

Actually it is a Glenfield model 30GT and was marketed through Western Auto and Montgomery Ward stores in 1978-79. Price was $129.00, no kidding.

Caliber is 30-30, this carbine shoots best with 150 grain Remington core-lockt ammo. Typically 1st two shots touching each other at 100 yards! I zero for 150 yards: 2.25 inches high at 100 yards. Even at distances of about 175 yards or so, this performance bullet by Remington produces sudden death.

Mutt:
These carbines have not appreciated in value like other rifles. I doubt my Glenfield carbine including scope would bring more than $275. but its a keeper and NOT for sale.
