    Stopped at a gun shop today, and they had a 1969 Texan in 30-30 with a brass saddle ring. The gun looked new! It was marked $380. With tax it comes to $406.60 out the door.

    Someone please talk me into going back!:D

    Offer them $400 even when you go back to pick it up !! ;)

    Then post pictures of it as soon as you get it home...OK ?

    Call them and say " I'll take it " Offer 400 $ even , just make sure it gets a " SOLD" sign on the tag before someone grabs it out from under you. ;)

    definately worth that price! i would give $400 for it without blinking twice, because decent used ones in my area generally run $500 and up.

    You wouldn't find one of those in my local shop for less than $500!

    I went back and got it for $385 out the door. Got it home and took it apart and found a crack in the stock. You can't see it from the outside but I repaired it anyway.

    Thanks to all who responded. I like my "new" Marlin. I can't believe a gun that looks that clean on the outside was that dirty on the inside!:eek:
    But she's clean, inside and out, now. And if it ever stops raining I'll take her out to the range.
