Hi all, I'm a newcomer to the forum and would like any thoughts you might offer on a gun purchase. I've been eyeing Remington 788's for some time and am really interested in acquiring one in 6mm or 7mm-08 eventually. Mainly as a utilitarian "working gun" for deer. I spotted a used 30-30 in a local gun shop with an asking price of $399. Stock is in pretty good shape with some typical dings and wear around both swivel attachments. Blueing is great until you get toward the muzzle end - then some mild discoloration/surface rust. I understand this model is relatively rare in 30-30. Would you guys grab this if it could be had for $300-$350? Don't know that I have a particular fondness for bolt action 30-30's but is it one of those rare "opportunities" as it were or would you save the money and apply it toward a desired caliber? Are 788's overpriced and overrated? Thanks for any opinions you are willing to offer.
