Replacement Deer Rifle 😍

Recommended Posts

Been looking the last couple of months for a replacement deer rifle after my M1917 Eddystone got stolen. Was heavily considering a 721 Remington and then found a scoped 1903 that wasn’t the prettiest, but got a helluva deal on. 

Was in my hometown today for my sons birthday at grandmas and found the one I’ve been looking for.  

Pre-64 Model 70 Super Grade in 30-06... priced at $350. Needless to say, that’s one less they have to sell this year .

That's a friggin pre 64! It has been dinked with and refinished, but still......wow!

I can't wait to hear how it shoots. I've yet to have a model 70 that wasn't scary accurate.

You paid for half the floorplate.

The gray is just a pad on the cheekrest. Self adhered, sort of like weatherstripping material. 

Guy knew his pistols. He Didn’t even know it was a pre-64 until I started questioning the bolt and looked up the serial

Ran across a Bausch and Lomb 4-12x40 Balvar to sit atop it. 2 months and I’ve still not sent the first round down the pipe.

This actually ended up getting a Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10x40.   Still have yet to fire it. It will make its appearance for TN Deer this year if not for CO Elk sooner.

      Got a friend who's brother bought a Sota Arms AR-15 at a gun show. I have never heard of them. From what reviews I've read about them, they seem kinda of hit or miss in the quality department. Anyone here ever heard of them or has one? Are they any good? Thanks.

      Hello,
      I am new to shotguns and just received mine, but I am uncertain which ammo I need for home self defense.
      I was trying to get through the jungle of different ammunition, but it is impossible.
      Can someone please tell me which I need? 
      Maybe brand , # Shot, oz, FPS.
      Thank you very much.

      Anyone here tried one yet?
      I have an 18" 6.5mm that may very well get converted if the new Hornady cartridge proves out.
