I wasn't going to purchase any guns this year, but I came across this and just couldn't resist. While I was in Las Vegas last week, my brother took me to a friends house who was selling some guns. He had a very nice Colt Detective Special .38 in pristine condition, but my younger brother bought that one right away. Then, the lady had this rifle. I've always wanted a .308 caliber rifle. This beauty is in excellent condition, it hasn't been fired much. It also wears a very nice Leopold scope. I wanted it! Then I asked her, "how much." Her answer was, "how much cash do you have." So I looked in my wallet and I found $80. She thought about it for 15 seconds or so and said, "OK, sold." So I snapped it up. I shipped it to my FFL ($16) and he will charge me $20 next Tuesday or Wednesday when I pick it up. So I will have a grand total of only $116 invested in this thing!
I think it's rare to come across deals like this and now I've got my .308 that I've wanted. I'll do a review after I get to the range. I may not be able to afford giving this a 1,000 round trigger job, but I'll run a couple hundred through it. It's a Savage 99E, lever action. I can't remember the model of the Leopold scope, but once I get it and inspect it, I'll let you know how it shoots. Here's a picture of one just like it, what do you think?
