Default Looky what I found...

A few months ago, but yeah, sitting on a gunshop shelf, for a few days with no interest

Even the retired sheister types passed over it.

It had a scope and sling, I added the Williams sights.

1967 Ruger fingergroove sporter, with factory checkering

I search and search. Every now and then,

you come across a pearl in the pile.

Ya done good. The stock even looks to be well preserved.

I was looking for a smooth fingergroove to match my dad's .44 mag.
Stock has some light marks, not abused, but not a safe queen either.

As users go, it's just a walnut 10/22. For the collector however, it's kind of a tough one to find, and $$$.

Was offered $750. No way. It's my piney slayer

That's a nice rifle you've got. Even I want to know it's price.

I have that model with "made in 200th year of American Liberty" inscribed on the barrel. It has popped a lot of ammo since I bought it in 1976, not so much anymore since my 15-22, 10-22 sporter, various Winchester and Remingtons from years gone by and a DPMS .22 dominate my shooting scene.

You did good on that one and should keep a grand kid happy when visiting and a wonderful gift when passing it on.

That is sweet rifle. My area, anything in mint condition is sold.

Deluxe finger groove sporters were supposedly made up to '71... according to a quick web search.
Factory checkering was a $10 option back then, and is what cranks up the price collector wise.

It's not mint, but it aint beat up either.

I was stunned to see it marked as though it was a current production deluxe sporter. It was damn hard to keep my cool.
