Just got lucky today.

Ruger M77 6mm tang safety.

I’d rate it a 9 out of 10

$425 bolt

Looks like it’s a 1975

Oddly enough, it’s actually my 2nd find of 2019 in Cabela’s.

Neither time I was technically looking for anything

I gave $450 for this Ruger M44, again it too in a 9 out 10 back in February

bolt

Y’all leave the used gun rack alone!!! rofl

My best bet is they don’t keep up with the older Rugers prices very well

Bought one in 6mm in 1969--$160. Gave it to my brother 25 yrs. ago. He doesn't hunt. One of my favorite cartridges. .

Nice score! A few years ago I bought a Browning Auto 5 12ga, Belgium for 100 bucks. The “red” tag price was $99.95. Of course, when I went to pay out they called a manager up to question the tag. After a few minutes of typing away on the computer, he confirmed that the tag matched the serial and the serial matched the computer..it was simply mis-marked. They honored the marked price and because it was a “red tag” item I got an additional 20% off the marked price. I can’t remember the exact total but it was less than a hundred bucks otd.

I showed my FIL yesterday, he seemed to like it. Left it at that didn’t say much

Says today, he’s thought about it and he too wants it.

Offered me a Mini 14, 9 out of 10

And

Remington 788 in .243, 9 out of 10.

Idk, I’d guess he’s offering 1k in guns. And I’m still unsure. Told him lemme think about it.

Would you?

Yep. Sell the Mini and basically have a free 788

Depends on what YOU would do with it and what you would do with a Mini-14 or Remington 788. If it's just going to be a safe queen because you don't need it to hunt with, then I would trade. However, the same question pertains to what he's offering - do you have any use for a Mini-14 or a Remington 788?

As for Cabela's keeping up with market value on used guns, I doubt they have the have the time or manpower to do that. Granted, they're not going to sell a $2,000 gun for $200 but I would imagine that as long as they make a little money on the guns they take on trade then they are satisfied. Their goal is likely to turn the inventory rather than make top dollar on every trade. Otherwise, they'd be sitting on a pile of used guns.

Nice find and congrats!
