    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.

    That's a beautiful little rifle.. It looks like a straight pull bolt or am I mistaken :confused:

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

    :mad::mad::mad:

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

    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.:D

    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.

    AND you were smart enough to jump on it! So many guys would need to "think it over" for a few days.

    When I see something I know I'll regret NOT buying, it gets snapped up right away.

    Nah. That is a complete train wreck of a purchase Lon. You should let me take that off your hands for you and get it out of Texas before anyone sees you with it. :D:p

    Excellent addition to your most impressive arsenal good sir!! Kudos to you.
