    Yup! I surely wasn't going to walk away empty handed.

    Some nice guns and within my budget too. I might find a new purchase for myself here.

    Wow another rifle i found this one can be found for about 320$! The Remington 770 it is a more modern rifle but if i was in ww2 or Stalingrad or a war from the past i would definitely want this nowadays its awkward to use bolt actions in battle. but still for 320$ for a 308. battle rifle heck yea even though its not made for battle id still take it.

    I have a 770. It is a very accurate rifle. Mine was $299. But the action feels like a toy. I question whether it will hold up to a lot of shooting. My 14 year old son cycled the bolt once and didn't want to use it for Elk season.

    Exactly --- I have heard they can be accurate but for the price you can find a used Savage 110 or 700 IF you shop around. I shot a .270 770 and the action was so gritty I passed on it and I was just gonna use it a spare for guest.

    I would suggest a Ruger American, or marlin x7 over a Remington 770.

    350$ should find you a very clean M44 with

    matching serial numbers, right about now.

    But I would not wait 6 months.

    I think the sks is a fun, cheap, rifle. I picked mine up a few months ago at a gunshow for $180, and i've seen them at cabelas for $280. Fun to shoot (although not the most accurate gun out there). On the plus side, there are tonnes of aftermarket accessories and what not.

    Here is mine after I cleaned it. Its the russian model (1952)

    Remember we are comparing these guns to mosin nagants and other cheapy rifles the 770 isnt all that bad for 320$ some mosins nowadays for the same price why not go a little more modern?

    A couple months ago at the gun show for 180 actually, the one they were selling at cabelas was 280. And I thought that was expensive! Mind you im in canada but still, usually things are more expensive up here!

    Saw a couple Turkish Mausers go for $90 and less this week. 1941 and 1944 WW2 models. Looked like they had been sitting under the previous owner's body since then but they still shot.
