Buffalo Bill Winchester 30-30
 
I know quite a bit about pistols and revolver; however, my knowledge of rifles/shotguns is lacking. A friend of mine has a gun shop and often calls me when he get a gun that he thinks I will like. I have recently got into cowboy shooting with my Uberti and my CZ hammer coachgun. Anyways, he called me when he got a winchester levergun in trade. It is a Buffalo Bill Commemorative in 30-30. I took a look at it and it is beautiful.

It has an octagonal 26" barrel, saddle ring, engraving, and a perfect wood stock with a very contrasting grain. He said, "to me" he would sell it for $350. It is used but the original owner said it was a collection piece and never shot. It comes with the original box and papers as well. I know the barrel might be a little long, but I like the look of the longer barrel as well.

I was just wondering if this is a good levergun to start with and if there are any special concerns with this gun. Also, I doubt it but would the warrenty still be active?

$350 is a little short of what a Marlin 30-30 is selling for at my local Walmart. There is no comparison. I would snap up that Winchester if it was me! Sometimes commemorative stuff can be a little cheesy. But Winchester is a class act.

Who's selling it, where and how do I get in touch with them? Just kidding. ;)

At that price, snap it up. $350 for any near new Winchester is an excellent price. :cool:

$350 for a Buffalo Bill is a good price for a gun that has been fired,and a great price for one that includes the box and paperwork and is unfired.
