    I was talking to a buddy of mine in Fort Worth. Somebody offered him a 30-06 today for $300. From the description it sounds like a Interarms Mark X with a Redfield scope. I told him. I might be interested in it, so my buddy's going to check it out further tomorrow. If it is a Mark X, deal or no deal?

    That is an $800 gun without the scope!

    He said it had nice wood on it, and the only name he saw was "Interarms". It sounded like a Mark X, but I've never owned one, and haven't seen one in years. They used to be modert priced, but I thought $300 was a good deal these days. Doug said he'd pick it up for me and hold it till my next trip to Texas .

    Txpossum, if it's an Interarms Mark X, IMO yes it's worth $300. i'd give that in a heartbeat. IIRC, Interarms was an importer and those Mark X rifles were Mauser sporter rifles. the ones i remember were some really nice rifles.

    Add a vintage Redfield, great set up. If the Scope is Colorado made, it is a great deal. Good call without the scope!

    The demise of the Redfield Co. of Denver was a real loss. The long labor union strike of 1973 and the later environmental damage claims was grievous. The Brown Shoe Co. later sold Redfield to Talon Zipper who divested it to their President.
    I knew these owners and hoped it would make a come back. I tested one of the first "Gold Star" scopes for them. The weight of the labor union and the ant-gun movement was just too much. :(
