Mossyoak195,

Your 1941 Deluxe Rifle seems to be as good as it gets for $3000.
It is in the "sweet spot" of pre-WWII quality building that possesses the bolt peep as well as
the short tang/long comb that some would prefer for handling characteristics.
Don't try to convince a long tang collector.
However, the tangs started being shortened by one inch in late 1937 for some reason ...

Yep, never can have too many pre-'42 Winchester Model 71 rifles, except for the ones Bubba has gotten to.
Offer $2000 less than Bubba wants for those.

Thanks JSG, i would have prefered mine to be untouched, but as BSA will tell us, that old rifle may have spent 40 years in a saddle scabbard, i was very happy my 'Smith was able to get rid of the small pits in the mag tube and barrel, will also admit to wanting to get a bit of his color case work, he brought that idea up, said ""you better get it on your mind son, i'm getting old and tired, hell, i don't even buy green bananas anymore!" grin

You bet Big G, good, good stuff gone forever, politicians and their greed on both sides of the border have insured that.

One of my favorite Rifles, and Caliber! The Winchester Model 71 , in 348! The Winchester 1886 is absolutely phenomenal, in all of it's Calibers, but the 71 is outstanding!

HS58, agreed, i have a couple original '86's in 40-65 and 45-70, they both run on home cast lead and blackpowder, just something xtra special about a '71 in 348 Winchester, working the lever alone will tell anyone paying attention all they need to know.

Great point! Boy those are some of the smoothest actions that I've ever experienced! Silk kinda comes to mind when I think about it. Matter of Fact, Hold my Scotch, I'm gonna go pull one out!

Mmmmmmmm!

Don't recollect that one! Gonna have to get up to speed on er!

J.B., Dewars, But My Absolute Favorite, is Chevits!(Chivas Regal)

Now, don't get me wrong A little Scotch on the Rocks, will Definitely, take the edge off.
A good friend of Mine used to give me a Bottle of 12 yr. old Glenlivit, every Christmas. It was good, don't get me wrong, but I favored the Chevets over it, so I'd share that with Company!
Always give Company the Best!!!

I did pull a 71 out last night! SMOOTH!

Yes, my favorites are 12 and 16 year Glenmorangie, awhile back a bud gave me a 1.75 liter of Famous Grouse, it is blended, but very smooth and reasonably priced, iirc around 33 bucks for a 1.75, the perfect everyday sipping scotch.

Shoulder sighting and working the lever of a '71 is the perfect way to end an evening.

That Famous Grouse is the best selling Scotch in Scotland!
Yeah, it won't be long and I'll be reporting back on what I think of it.
Just when I thought I had enough, of one thing, I found another! LOL!!!

Lol! Yeah, I had a friend with some similar blood lines,(from Oklahoma originally), still a friend, just loose touch every now and then, but when he gets a taste, and he does like his tastes, it's like fire water to him! lol
Good guy, lot of fun! Loves his Tequila.
He gets lost every now and then, but he's due to show up I'm sure. Has a Big heart!

Pulled a 71 out tonight just to rub her down, and make sure she wasn't lonely!
They get that way when you don't give em the attention they deserve! lol!!!
