Bought an absolutely like brand new model 88 winchester this summer. the nicest i have ever seen. not a scratch save one tiny one on the butt. still fully blued at the end of the barrel. filler screws still blued. Perfect. I found an older mint vari XII 2-7 and mounted it in talley lows. definitely wanted a scope that would balance nicely and not overpower the rifle. I ordered a nice dark leather german surplus sling and she is ready to go. Don't plan to deer hunt much, but wait to take a buck with such an elegant rifle chambered in the venerable 308 winchester. it came with owners manuel and a box of western super X shells circa 1972- still has the 6.50 price on shells lol. Thank again Buckwild

That is beautiful! I really like your picture layout too. The older rifles just have so much more character and soul that enrich the hunt with their history. If only they could talk!
