A guy with a table at the Puyallup gun show wanted $185 for a 1950 Marlin 336 30-30.
The guy said it has a perfect bore.
I asked there was ANYTHING wrong with it.
He said, "It has a recoil pad."
I offered $150.
He complained that $185 was already a very low price.
I looked at him.
He said, $175.
I said $165.
He said, OK.


I already have a Win 94 angle eject that I got in 2003 that I have taken to the range twice with cast handloads.
I have a 1905 Sav99 30-30 that I have not shot.
I have a 91/30 I rebarrelled to 30-30 that I have not shot.
I have a Sav219L 30-30 that I have test fired with 220 gr jacketed handloads, but not taken to the range.

What's with all the guns you buy and have work done to, but don't shoot? Are you just collecting them?

I am with you tnekkc,

I cannot leave anything alone. I am an engineer by trade, craftsman for a hobby. I have worked on my 1911, CETME, and have plans for my 336 35Rem. For me, the gunsmithing is the fun part.

I am a 59 year old engineer, currently not working.

When I do have a job, I push buttons on calculators, draw sketches, take pictures, send email, and make mistakes on some corporation's cell tower, jet engine, defibrillator, night vision, etc.

When I do not have a job, I do the same stuff, on my mill, my guns, my boat, etc.

That rifle, in my possession will either sit in storage, or get drilled and tapped and converted to 25/35.

I share Colonel Townsend Whelen's philosophy on how to load the 25/35.

I'm an engineer too, I make maps and plan utilities, but I shoot my guns! They are too much fun to just play with and not work.

Nice job haggling! I never pay asking price at gun shows, if they won't haggle, I won't buy.
