Yup, I like beat up guns. Rat Rod guns

It will happen. I have several lever guns and never paid near what they are worth for any of them. You just have to be patient. My first one I bought from a guy for $60, the very same as CA357 just got. The guy needed the money, was just out of jail on a felony and it was his dad's rifle. I knew his dad before I met him- he was going to live with his dad and they needed to get rid of the guns. It all checked out when I ran the serial numbers. Cheap gun. Still have it. Last one was the best though. Original 1886 Winchester in 45/70 in excellent shape (the one I posted pics of the sight earlier) I got that and two .22 rifles for $200. The 1886 is worth more than 10 times that.

You just have to keep your eyes open.
