I will not own a gun made by the japs. They started ww2 and killed my uncle.

Long ago I wanted one of those Winchester M71's. A deluxe of course. What with them being an iron sight gun, expensive and scarce I never did find one at a discount.

Perhaps its just as well. I don't buy guns to make money on them however I would have 'made money on that one'.

Cabela's sent me a flyer yesterday and I also got a "shooting catalog" today. There were several pictures of various models that Winchester was going to make a limited run on and that model 71 was priced at 1,500 dollars.

Ah browning has figured out how to pry open the wallets of the retired old guys who remember the model 71.

I'm not retired and only semi-old, but my wallet's creaking at the hinges trying to stay shut.....

M71s and M64s are almost irresistible to me.

If you want one you better call your dealer and get it ordered. They only make the number of these ShotShow specials that they get orders for.. They're not regular production.

You must have a special edition shooting catalog, because the 2 of them I've got so far shows only the 94 with button magazine and chamber in 38-55 as the only 50th anniversary levergun....

i just saw a nice deluxe at a gunshow yesterday for $1400 and was sorely tempted but picked up a kit gun smith instead. another guy had a bunch of 348 factory shells for $45/box. i saw it as almost an omen but resisted anyway. i don't know a lot about the 71's other than my old neighbor has one and it is slick as heck. and the 348 seems like a ideal deer cartridge.

They are tempting. I'm more a Marlin fan than a Winchester fan, but that is one Winchester that looks good. I've always had an interest in the 348.
