If the rifle is in good condition and the scope is any count at all you made a good buy. Even if you have to put a good scope on the gun you still made a good buy if the gun is in good shape. Did you check the bore to see what shape it is in?
The .35 Rem. 200gr is an excellant caliber for woods hunting. Knocks deer on their butt.
Since it's not your scope sight it in at zero at 75 yds.
If it's in good serviceable condition, I would say you got a very good deal. That is an excellent choice for whitetail deer and black bear in the eastern woodlands.
Not so good for open country on antelope, however.
That's a good price for that particular rifle in good condition without the scope and sling. It's a great brush gun. If you hunt in the woods where shots are fast and close I think you will be very happy with your purchase.
ill give ya 300 for it and you can keep the scope.The 35 rem is greatly underappreciated.
A NEW Marlin at Wal*Mart $369.00 and No scope.
you got a good deal on yours, the 35Rem is a great Deer and Black Round. Good luck..Happy Hunting.
If you reload, look to WW748 and 200 grain Remington RN Corelokts, you will be pleased.
I'd say yes if it's fairly clean and the bore looks good, as noted above a new 336 in any caliber is pushing $400. Leverguns don't get the credit they deserve. It might just be me but I feel a levergun points better an swings easier than a bolt action. Plus ammo for lever rounds are cheaper as well.
a good way to clean a bore up nicely is to use a calibre specific bore swab wrapped with some 4-0 steel wool soaked in copper solvent. run that up and down 15 or 20 times then let sit for half an hour or so. swab it out, dry it up, and lightly oil the bore and you should be golden.
