I just bought a Winchester 1897
Good friend and THR/CombatCarry member Preacherman is in town for a few days. So he walks in with a couple long cases and I make the mistake of saying, "So what are you peddling today?"
I was asked a few days ago if there was any gun I was looking out for and I said, "I have everything I want. "
I already have a S&W 66, a Colt Cobra and a Kel-Tec SU-16 that I purchased from him.
"Are you familiar with the Winchester 1897? I have one here and I'll give you first dibs if you're interested....."
"Noooooooo! I mean yes I'm familiar with the 1897, but... Nooooooo! How could you bring that here? It's MINE!"
And I cradled the 1920s takedown model, 28" barrel 1897 and opened the action. Decent bluing. Good shape. Not shot much. Oh yeah. Takedown. I can get different barrels. :biggrin:
Horribly evil, gun peddling preacher. :wink:
Mrshonts: "Oh good grief. How many guns does that make now?"
Betty: "But honey, it's my dowry."
Seriously Betty...Congrats On a Nice Find.
Yep, Pics would be great if you get the time to take some.
AGREE with CLASS3NH ~ Great Firearm!:unitedsta
Absolutely one to snatch right up if one gets the rare chance.
