new/used ML

bid and won a used Jonathon Browning Mountain rifle in percussion and 50 cal. While in used condition it still looks nice and can't wait to get it. These were built for a couple of years, late 70's early 80's and are high quality rifles. Got it for half what unfired models are fetching these days. Funny though, I can't even fire it with broken ribs. Had a chest x-ray today to see what's not healing right?? Anyway I spent some money cause there are a couple of open slots in the vault. Anytime you get a gun it's a good day!!

found out it is coming from the UP of Michigan. I hope it's in great shape as you gamble buying over the internet. I've only been burned 1 time so hopefully things go well. This rifle should be capable of pretty good accuracy and will have to wait to see what rate of twist it has, probably 1-66 or 1-48??

I Totally Agree !!!!

My buddy showed up a few hunting seasons back with one of those. Looked very good, said he bought it new while in Indiana. Great find!
