Happened to be close to my local cabelas yesterday and stopped in. Used gun room in the back had a beautiful ruger #1 varminter in .243. Looks unfired to me, I can't find a single blemish on the rifle anywhere. Came with box, rings and all paperwork. Priced at $849, it now has a forever home in my safe. Maybe cabelas isn't completely useless after all...

Nice grab! I've made several good scores at Cabelas. I've found that many trade-ins don't make it to their website, you have to be there at the right time. I always do a "drive-by" of the gun counter when I'm close to a Cabelas store.

I picked up a #1 in 338wm at a Cabelas in 2019. Forgot original price, but they had marked it down to $749. I made an offer for $699 and they said yes. Always ask for a lower price.

You got a smoking deal. I would have snatched that up with no hesitation. Actually saw a #1 in 38-55 at LGS today for $1800. Really nice shape, but not quite in my budget.

Yep. Most items are over priced, some comically. Every once in a while though you can find a screaming deal.

Have to agree - I bought a Freedom Arms 83 premiere grade 454 with a Leupold scope ordered as a factory package with the box to fit the scope - $1200 at the Post Falls, ID store. Seemed to good to be true where generally everything Cabelas is over priced.

Just last week, I saw online that Cabela's had a Browning A-Bolt 12 gauge slug gun for $799 which is about half of what they are asking on GunBroker/GunsInternational.

I emailed them saying I'd take it if it was still available and the response was that it sold within an hour of going online. I didn't even need it as I already have one but for that price I was going to put it in the safe for one of my sons. I kind of feel bad for the dupe they ripped off on a trade-in or sale if they could sell it that cheap. If you have to use a slug gun those are one of the best.

I’m pretty sure I have some high rings for that, if you decide to go big with the scope. I’ll look later and see what they are.

Nice snag.

That’s a sweet deal

If they know they can sell it in store they won’t bother putting it online or guns international.

I’ve gotten some ridiculous deals out of the one here and in Utah. I have also passed up on some I should not have before the pandemic. Like a boat paddle 22mag for $399 or a Ruger 44 carbine for $599.

I picked up my clean pre-safety Marlin 1894 in 357 for $599 plus tax.

Actually I'd love to find some offset rings if anybody has any laying around. Thank you for the offer on the highs. I'll keep that in mind. Still undecided on how I'm going to scope it.

My goodness I'd pay some serious money for a boat paddle in 22mag! $399... 😳😳😳

I’ve had success asking “what’s your best price” at Cabelas library. But have not been in one in several years.

I'll try that next time. I figured those prices were pretty non-negotiable. As cheap as that one was, I was looking behind me on the way out the door waiting for the cops to cuff me for stealing 😂
