Not a bad deal at the buy it now if the scope and gun are actually in good shape. Both have sold for quite a bit more seperately

A similar gun alone sold for $705. $1100 includes the scope. However, that scope is one that is sold as Chinese replicas, so that could be a real trap, especially how it is spelled in the ad.

Sadly I've seen alot of this type of set up mostly on 760s and Winchester 94. See through mounts seem to be pretty popular in NW PA. We call the 760 - The PA Machine Gun. I've heard those things out out some serious lead with a 'good' operator.

Brad- I double dog dare you laugh to buy that thing and use it for your annual 6pt bull! With a picture of that rifle and your bull you'll be able to sell it for a profit!

I'll buy you a mess of StL hats if you do!

Funny that most of those guns with scopes or mounts included have that same ring setup.

Ya. You see that a lot.
My late uncle was very proud of his. Liked to still have the open sights.

I wonder if Remington ever advertised the Gamemaster/Wingmaster pairing.

And 9 out of 10 were probably never used as sights or even sighted in correctly with sights, for that matter

Looks like the scope ends up so high your face would never touch the stock or am I wrong?
A horse walks into a bar, the bartender says "Why the long face?"
The horse says "I got see thru mounts on my deer rifle and this is the only way I can get cheek weld." grin grin

To be fair, super high see-thru mounts are probably the way to hang the objective bell of a 16" long 50mm scope over the factory rear sight.


The scope's just for game observation and estimating rangeā€”no serious rifleman would trust anything, but open sights.

Laugh it up but my father in law had one in .243 that would group so tight you would not believe it.

If you look real close, rear sight is the ramp only, missing the slide. So see thru mounts??

Also, bid starting price doesn't include the scope, but you get it free at the buy it now price!

The rear mount acts as an aperture sight? whistle

I think you guys are missing the point: if it is indeed a carbine 760, then it is worth every bit of the $599 without the scope. They are very hard to find, and pricey when you do. That one might not get a lot of attention on GB because "carbine" is not in the search info.

Edited to add===> for example, a .30-06 carbine with replaced stock and 6 days left is already over $500, and one in .280 is at $1175.

stiab has it right get rid of the scope or the rifle and it's still a deal .308 760 carbines are tough to come by, I know I searched hard for one for one of my customers years ago. Re-do it properly and you have quite a rifle.

Too many, even here on the Fire Classifieds, don't separate scope and rifle. In most cases, they sell better offered individually.

Someone wanting that scope, may not want that rifle, and vice versa.

And, especially with that unit being such a mismatch, separtion is even more appropriate.

The seller should sell those fine see thru mounts as a third offering.

Maybe that's why the scope looks so long.

Who cares how someone scoped his rifle. I have seen many similar setups, those folk killed many deer. Their only goal. They did it with cheap asss scopes and fed their families. If perfect, high dollar equipment makes you feel superior, have at it.


P.S. After spending thou$and$ on your proper rifle, you will still have micro penises. grin
