    Rattle-filled Marlins, gritty Rossi's... Lever action rifle quality is iffy at best at this price point

    Won't know until I take delivery and give it a go

    A Japanese made 1892 Winchester (good reviews on quality) for $882 from CTD was just too far out of my price point... Have to save up for the other 19 guns I need to buy between now and Nov 2020

    A side loading Taylor or Uberti would have been nice... But dollars rule for this range plinker I'm buying

    A WWI Enfield. Maybe I could get the one Dango carried in France.

    Its a toss up right now between a Uberti 1873 replica in .45lc, a 1885 high wall or a M1a standard with wood stock....decisions...decisions...:confused:

    I hear the standard lengths work better. But I have no experience to back that up.

    Mr BVAL,

    I noticed your post referring to Remington 788 (.223). My wife and I have owned a Remington 788 (.243) for about 30 years. During our early days we proabaly discharged about 100 total rounds including sighting and hunting. Now, it is time to sell it. It is mechanically clean and solid, the stock has more surface scratches than it should, and it has great little Buckmaster scope. Would you please suggest a price range?

    BTW - I totally agree with what you say about that weapon. It was the first rifle owned after being in the Vietnam Era Army. I had always shot expert with the Army weapons and this rifle was as good or better. The last time I shot it a friend of mine and myself were hunting coyotes.My friend took a shot at one a litlle over 100 yards away and only wounded him in the back hind leg. The poor thing was moving sideways while spinning in circles trying to get into the nearby cover. I took one shot timed to hit his heart as he spun (if I was lucky) and it worked. Dropped the poor guy in his tracks.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Well the asking price can be anything that someone is willing to pay. Also, it depends on what area of the country you are trying to sale it.
    Without not being able to see the rifle, a great price would be $400.00. Can go if like new in box $600.00+. I just looked at one a few weeks ago, not what I wanted. Safe bet to the right person and place,,,,,,, $475.00 to $540.00

    There won't be a side loading Henry because that would be a Winchester.

    Having just purchased a Kel-Tec SUB 2000 in 9mm Gen 2, I will say, my next rifle in the near future would have to be A Lever Action with 10 rounds of .45 Long Colt. I had one and sold it years ago and it's my favorite carbine!

    Would love the HK MR762.
    At 3K-4K it’s possible, but I would rather get 6-7 pristine AK rifles for that price.

    I have a 16” in .44mag, other than it shooting a bit high with .44specials (I expected this), I couldn’t be happier with it. Hope you enjoy yours.
