Hello All,

I need to upgrade some equipment at the ranch so it is time to move a few rifles and help with the finances.  With the exception of the Model 90 these rifles are absolutely wonderful.  I hope that they find appreciative new homes.  Best of luck.

Pre War Model 94 30 WCF A Perfect Pre War Model 94 chambered in 30 WCF – Lever Action Rifles at GunBroker.com : 1034699805

My god I wish that someone along the way hadn’t thought it was a good idea to add a swivel to the 90’s buttstock… but I imagine at the time – it made complete sense!

TWO swivels make complete sense (unless you enjoy the services of a gun-bearer), & therefore I added period factory swivels to guns I once hunted with, but not sure how only one would work; maybe used a loop around brl or mag tube the way some modern muzzle-loader slings attach to guns without swivels.  Anyway, the swivel eye is a trivial concern, easily patched.

Nice guns! I’m following them on GB to see how they do! 😉

Why not offer these rifles for sale directly on this forum instead of on Gunbroker.  No sales tax and you don’t have to pay fees to Gunbroker.

I agree regarding the sling stud but it does not affect the shooting capability of the gun.  I have actually used it to shoot a couple small hogs at my ranch.  At 20 yards a head shot will drop them nicely!  I just never had the willingness to mess with it any further.  Maybe the next guy will repair it nicely.

It is a matter of trading the reasonable fees in exchange for reaching a possibly larger buying community.

Congratulations Michael on your sale. I thought the flat band might go a bit higher but overall I think I would be happy.

I am not complaining on the sales.  I also agree that the flat band might go for a bit more.  Now the busy part of getting things boxed up, depositing checks, and going to the post office.
