Bummer. I'd heard the opposite, that it depends on how long the used rifle has been there, and how much they gave in credit for it.
Worth a shot, at least. Might have to wait til after XMas, though. Gotta take care of the gifts for the wife before the gifts for myself
The scopes that are on those two rifles happen to be Mossberg M4b scopes, with a tube diameter of 3/4". Any scope will do, but finding a 3/4" ring for a 3/8" dovetail receiver is gonna be tougher to find.
