  1. Surely somebody must have a good used set of Hombre 1873's for $700 or less. There's a new one on Gunbroker right now for $379, BIN, and $30 shipping. DLD 2's Marlin is a pretty dang good deal, and it'll hold its value. Deals are out there, but ya gotta keep your eyes open - I picked up a pair of NIB Talo/Ruger Birdshead .45 acp sheriff's models on Gunbroker just today for $805.
  2. And the AMT Lightning had the s/n on the lower frame. I've heard rumors it was such a close copy of the Ruger, that the non-serial numbered AMT barrel assembly would fit, or was easily fitted to, the non-serial numbered Ruger grip frame assembly. I've never owned one, so never had an opportunity to try it.
  3. Three Foot Johnson: How about $450 for the H&R Target Classic 38-55 ? Will take it if that works for you.

  4. I've seen real estate, houses, cars, trucks, RV's, ATV'S, books, bottles, coins, antiques, and assorted knick-knacks for sale here, as well as plenty of non CAS oriented guns, holsters, belts & assorted other non-cowboy items as far back as I can remember. I have a couple non-cowboy rifles for sale here right now. Property taxes are due in another six weeks.
  5. OK, how 'bout this - I sent this off to Remington when I bought it and had a .500 S&W barrel factory fitted to it, AND I called The Stock Guy (local who brings THOUSANDS of stocks, grips, sights, barrels, rails, etc. to the gun shows), and he's got a brand new OEM replacement Buffalo Classic/Target Classic butt stock for $100. The whole package - rifle, extra .500 S&W barrel, and replacement stock for $850, insured & shipped. I was going to keep the barrel, but I haven't shot that barrel in years, and probably won't ever again.
  6. Yes, it comes with the bolt - I forgot to put it in for the pic. These are high-quality rifles, but just weren't big sellers for TC, so they dropped them and came out with the lower priced, synthetic stocked Compass and Venture.
  7. Yep, twofer @ $690, insured & shipped. Tentatively SOLD to Springfield Slim.
  8. Unfired, new-in-box TC Icon with 3 piece laminated walnut stock, .308 Winchester, 24" barrel. $600/offer, insured & shipped to your FFL. Original price at Sportsman's Warehouse was $969.99. I bought a LOT of stuff when I was Gun Room Manager at Sportsman's Warehouse a dozen years ago, and most of it has never had a round chambered, let alone fired. I've owned this rifle for ten years, and this is the first time it's been out of the box since the day I bought it. Also for sale locally in the nickel paper starting on the 16th.
  9. Unfired, synthetic stocked Stevens Model 200 .25-06, 22" barrel, Team Primos/Nikon Monarch 3x9x40 scope with bullet drop reticle, Weaver bases & rings, new Redding reloading dies, and 4 bags (200) new Winchester brass. $600, insured & shipped/offer. Also for sale locally in the nickel paper starting on the 16th. I bought a LOT of stuff when I was Gun Room Manager at Sportsman's Warehouse a dozen years ago, and much of it never had a round through it.
  10. 7 1/2", .44-40 - I sold the last two for $690, insured & shipped, so I'll do the same for these two. Typical of the post style front sights, these tend to shoot about 6" - 8" high, so use a 6 o'clock Bullseye hold for CAS, keeping the target up where you can see it, and you'll never miss.
  11. Very good condition, low round count - 200 or so. 28" barrel. $500.00/offer, insured & shipped to your FFL. I bought a Sharps or three shortly after I bought & set this up in '07, and haven't shot it for years.
  12. I shoot a double most often by a long shot, but a '97, '87, or even a single shot occasionally too. Even when shooting a double, I have several "sub-category" oddballs like a Darne, a Fox Patent Side Swing, a Davenport Central Hung Double, etc. There are a lot of odd old shotgun designs.
  13. Whatever you do, DON'T buy a Chaparral. I bought one in the spring of '07, because it was considerably less than a Uberti... ... the first one wouldn't keep 'em all on a 8' x 8' target backing at 50 yards. That's EIGHT FEET, not eight inches. I backed off to 25 yards, then 15, and the bullets were tumbling and hitting completely sideways even at that range. It had a slew of other problems too - ill fitting side plates, extraction problems, sear problems, etc. I sent it back, they "fixed" it, and... there was a small improvement... back again, and they replaced it, then went out of business. The third one had fairly well fit parts & wood, and I was able to make it functionally acceptable, but 15" groups at 100 yards were about as good as it got. Every now and then, I'd get it out and try something else - different powders, both black & smokeless, different bullets (from 265 - 405 grains), both jacketed and cast, etc. Eventually, a year or so back, I decided to go waaay out of the envelope and try a cast 500 grain round nose seated deep enough to cycle... and it worked! With a case of Alliant Black MZ, it will shoot as good as I can hold it - two inches or so at 100 yards, maybe three on a bad day. I haven't tried smokeless with that big ol' pill yet, but I don't want to shoot smokeless anyway, so... Oh, it's a .45-75.
