If it looks good, you'll see it
If it sounds good, you'll hear it
If it's marketed right, you'll buy it
But...If it's real, you'll feel it

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!

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!

Thank you. I've done a bit of auction scanning lately looking at other 1886's offered. There is a sea of non-fantastic looking rifles out there.
