Default This one made me really happy!

I found a 1967 Browning T-Bolt .22LR today and had to have it. It is the same rifle my Dad gave me as a kid, which I used as trade fodder when I got older and have always kicked myself for it.

It is the exact same year of production as the one I had when I was a kid. The previous owner had bought two in that year, one to shoot and the other to store away. I got the one that had been stored away, never fired. Came complete with the box. It is in 100% mint condition.

I am so happy.....and I'll keep it until I pass it down to my son. But don't tell him.

Great find Lon,I sure it brings back good memories and you'll probably shoot it for hours on end down there.

Sorry, we don't get many Brownings down here.. And straight-pulls look suspiciously like semi-autos you know, so they're probably evil



That is a great looking gun though, it reminds me of Dad's Anschutz.

Nice find, congratulations.

Beautiful gun and a very nice scope, I got a lotta crap from my buddies for putting a VX-II on my .22, but I outshoot them all the time.

Wow! It looks new. Did you have the spare Leup sitting around?

I can't wait to hear the range report.

Yeah, the scope was an extra I had.

The rifle was like it had been vacuum-sealed for forty-three years. Can't believe I found it.
