What do you know, I'm still the high bidder. Now if only people would back off for the next 12 days... lol. Seriously, good luck with the sale!

I had one just like it but for the mag tube, mine was built in 1902, I killed alot of deer, a bear and a buffelo with it, and regret ever selling it! I you must have a dandy in mind to sell this one! good luck with the sale!

John - I think this one would also do a heck of a job on deer, bear and buffalo smile I think I would really enjoy (i.e. use) a "gray rat" version of this rifle wink

Yes! mine seemed to, come to my shoulder, the ivory sight, lined up on the game, and fired, before i realy planed on it! sold it on a whem, planned on getting a 45-90, and that deal fell thru, but I went to the savage 99s at that point, so wasnt a bad thing in the long run! still mis that rifle tho!
