    A few months ago some of the Walmarts around here cleared out some guns from 2017-18 for ridiculously low prices. I didn’t find out about it until it was too late. 

    I don’t doubt what he said.

    Wasn’t it Big Chief who bought a Marlin 45-70 at Walmart at a pretty good discount? Not that cheap but I think around half price?

    I bought a 6mm ARC barrel and a new aero precision upper to build off of.  

    Once I get the barrel, I will decide how long a hand guard I want and what kind of gas block to get.  Ideally, I would get a low profile adjustable gas block that would hide under the hand guard.

    Not for me but by me. Building this for a customer. Itll be a 7mm Rem Mag once I chamber it.

    I am a fan of Superlative Arms' adjustable gas blocks. And it is low profile

    Another of my late FIL's rifles was found and we now have possession of it.  It's in a workable but neglected condition.  It is a Marlin 783, .22wmr with a Tasco Pronghorn Scope.  I believe it was the gun my FIL would shoot woodchucks out the back door with.  Checking out the scope alignment, it's no wonder he almost always missed.  The www says this gun is from 1984 and not worth much.
    I am thinking that I will just clean it well, align the scope and see how it shoots.

    Are the feed rails intergral with the box mag? The reason I ask is the feed rails on the rifle as it is now look to be integral with the action. That's what I Like about Savages, the feed rails are part of the magazine not the action.
    @snake284 I believe so.  I’ll check later, it’s been a while since I looked.

    @snake284 the answer is yes.  Just get a new mag box for a 700 (same part) and you should be able to reuse your spring an follower.

    Yeah, $79.00. I came with a cheesy no name scope. I bought 2 Savage A-17's for $99.00 each and a Remington 597 for $45.00.  A Remington 11/87 20 gauge for $149.00. Walmart has clearance sales all the time, you have to check their website.

    Glock 48 last week.  Remington Model Four the week before,  Rem 1100 16ga in the next few days along with a Mini-30 and likely a few others,  I'm going on a big estate buy Monday. I'll likely grab 1 or 2 from that for myself

    And what's the model 4 chambered in? Man you've been holding out!!

    30-06. Its missing a few parts so I snagged it for 150. It'll cost me about 18 to fix it. 

    As far as the estate sale,  I only put my name on 2 so far, a beretta jetfire 25 acp (walked away with 150 rounds). Might snag the Savage/ Springfield 67, depends if I can move the boxes of 410 first.  Also tagged a Steyr-Mannlicher 7x57, unsure of the model,  I think its a M1952. Really nice gun.  Although the 03-A3 is tempting as well,  or another pre-64. 

    Chiro, its a basic 48. A tool,  not really anything pic worthy that 2 seconds on Google won't show.  

    May end up passing on the 1100 16ga, friend REALLY wants it, and the ammo I'm sitting on.

    Now you have me confused, the model 4 is a rolling block, small caliber size. Are you meaning a model 7 perhaps?

    Model Four,  spelled out, not model 4. The Four was a higher grade 7400

    I guess since I never got around to posting when I got it... I'll just put it here.

    I got this Contender right before my dad got sick. Haven't had a chance to play with it much since then. Fired a few rounds out of it. It works.

    It has a factory TC barrel on it in 22LR. My trigger scale reads 8 ounces.  :o




    Awesome!

    Looking forward to your report on how accurate it is.
    I passed on its twin and put the money into a 10-22 rebuild.  Think this will be way more accurate

  • JunkCollectorJunkCollector Posts: 675 Senior Member
    I picked this up Saturday 
    I asked about it.
    Guy said you don't want to even look at it.
    It was neglected.
    Rust near the end of the bore.
    Firing pin stuck
    Breech plug ....well plugged.
    Took a 3 foot pipe wrench and heat to get it out.
    She's a runner now.
