The jive BS description?  Fantastic!  And how many million of these were produced?

  Maybe the cost of drilling the extra holes in the receiver? T/R

I thought maybe I was missing something.

That would be a $500 rifle in my area, maybe $600 if the seller was lucky.

That’s no excuse, either, since the mount used existing holes.

Sellers in your area haven’t mastered the art of hucksterism.  Appetite for it among GB know-nothings is insatiable!  You CAN’T spread it on too thick!

  Good point Clarence, in 1958 they were drilled. That changes my opinion of the price, but still crazy price.

Y’all are missing the swivel studs.  Makes it very handy for carrying in the woods.  Especially when you dragging a deer on a rope behind you (that you were able to bag with the aid of that nice scope).

1958 Winchester Model 94 Carbine 30-30 20″ Blued Winchester 94 1894 +OPTIC – Lever Action Rifles at GunBroker.com : 1026666380

  

Simple explanation is that there are at least two ignorant (uneducated) bidders in competition with one another.  Eventually one of them will prove himself to be the bigger (and poorer) village moron.

Methinks y’all may have missed the ultra-rare and exclusive hammer extension, that should help explain why this fine specimen is being so eagerly sought.
Or maybe not.

Don’t forget in the description it even says “Included in the sale is a handy hammer extension, adding to the value of this classic firearm.” how much value ? We may never know.

The simple beauty of GB, illustrated. These.contests are a seller’s dream. On the other hand, there are very occasionally items insufficiently recognized by the seller (and others) for what they are and mispriced.  Like the commodities market, GB can be an expensive place to find out who you are.

Certainly made my old heart go pitter-patter…or maybe it was that third big mug of Java.

On the right gun, like a Model 70 or other BA, an all-steel K4 IS lovely, but on a lever-action, merely absurd.

For me, rifles (or carbines) set up like this one with an offset scope on the left side of the receiver, are very awkward to sight through.  I’m right-handed with a dominant right eye.  This got me to thinking, how would this work out for a guy with a dominant left eye?

As I have always stated… Real Men shoot a Single Shot!!  No issues with being left or right handed or dominant eye Cool

Chuck – 

That is a very cool looking rifle.  I assume you don’t have your cheek snug against the buttstock when you shoot it?
