Your thoughts on a possible 30/30 buy

I have a chance to pickup a 1971 Winchester #94 30/30 for a good price but I'm not sure if I should take it or not. Even though I have had 94's before I'm not a big fan of them anymore mostly because of them being a bit on the short side. Give me your thoughts guys.

if it's a good deal, buy it, clean it up real nice, make a few $ profit and buy what you do want!!! on a 94 it must be a very good buy to make any profit!!

Re: Your thoughts on a possible 30/30 buy

It's a good gun to have, even if you just clean it up and put it in the back of the cabinet... I'd go for it. I've used mine to doe hunt and bear hunt the last few years. It's short stature alone earns its keep if you're a driver trying to push through the thick Centre County brush.

It's easy to use and clean, very light to carry and also has a little nostalgic value. I'm 6'4" and the length isn't an issue. It shoulders just fine for me.

Re: Your thoughts on a possible 30/30 buy

the 94 n 30/30 is a nice little pkg and fun and relatively cheap to shoot. shells are $8/bx on sale. but for a resale to be worth it, a '71 would have to be in really good, original shape and around $250 or less. guys want a lot for them but there are literally millions of them out there. and the post 64 guns are not worth as much. i have one from the 30's and it is really fun to shoot and carries like a twig.

Ok, you talked me into it. So, when the wife yells at me I'll blame it on you guys..... j/j. I have been wanting another lever gun anyway. I can't remember the last time I shot a 30-30
