Show Me Your Deer-Gun Wish List (Or Why I Love GunBroker.com, Part 2)

By Dave Hurteau

When I posted earlier this week that GunBroker.com (GB) is a great place to find project guns, like my Savage Model 24 .22LR/.410, some of you pointed out that it’s also useful for gauging the current value of guns and for adding guns to your wish list. Right on. That’s just where I was going with this. So one at a time:

Gauging Value
There are two classic North-Woods deer rifles I’ve always wanted: a Remington Model 14/141 (the company’s original centerfire pump and precursor to the 760/7600 ubiquitous to today’s Adirondack deer camps; shown at top above), and the Remington Model 8 (the company’s original autoloader, designed by Browning, and just one crazy-cool gun; shown at bottom). Now I own both. I won an auction on GB for the 141 and got it at a good price. I bought the Model 8 at my local gun shop but I still credit GB. By keeping track of what Model 8s were going for on the site, I knew enough to scoop up the one I found locally, in great shape, for just $390. I didn’t even bother trying to talk them down.

Adding to the Wish List
Funny you should bring this up, Buckshottoo, because I just started such a list based on perusing GB. Here are my top three lusted-after deer guns:
1 - Mannlicher-Schoenauer, preferably in 6.5 or 7x57
This will stay on the wish list for a long, long time—unless you all decide to take up a collection for me.
2 - Marlin Model 1893 in .30/30
Every bit as cool as an old Winchester 94—which I already have—and a better gun in some ways; of course, I can’t really afford this one, either.
3 - Winchester Model 70 Pre-64
What can I tell you? I don’t have one and I should.

So now for the big question: What are your top three GB-Wish List deer guns? And don’t let the fact that we’ll all soon be bidding on the same guns deter you. This will be fun, and there are plenty to go around on GB

An old double barrel shot gun in 20 gauge. Winchester or maybe even one of the brands no longer made. When I was a kid, old double barrels were gold. You couldn't get one. Now as the some of the older hunters and such die off, The young no one wants the old classics, everybody wants an autoloader or an AR. Old doubles are now popping up in used gun shops.

Maybe a used browning 22 target pistol, If I find one that feels good. I love to target shoot a pistol. Haven't found one that feels just right yet.

Hawkins Great Plains Rifle in percussion cap. I have a custom made Pennsylvania long rifle in flint lock and that is the most fun of all to shoot of all my firearms. From a bench almost has minute of angle in patch and round ball no less. I Wish I could hold it steady until it ignited, off of the bench. i love that piece.

My primary gun wish list has only two guns on it, both of them rifles.

1. Ruger Gunsite Scout.
I was finally able to take a look at one of these rifles last year, and now that I have I am in love. I think that this would actually make a great New England Deer rifle. It's short, so it would handle well in thick areas where I tend to hunt. It's not heavy, which would make it great for those long distance walks in the north woods. It also shoulders quickly with the sights practically lining themselves up, which would make it a decent snap shooter. 308 is also in my opinion the best pointed cartridge for around here.

2. Sauer 303.
I already own a Sauer 200, so I am already spoiled by the simply outstanding quality of these guns. One day I hope to own a semi-auto counterpart to my current bolt action deer rifle. While my 200 is in 308, if I were ever lucky enough to own one of these guns I would get it in 30-06.

1)Tikka T-3 Lite stainless Left-Hand in 30-06, a light, 90% solution to the ultralight nobody else makes in this caliber.
2)Remington 600 in 308 for my daughter.
3) A Ruger M-77 stainless 300 Win Mag or 7 Rem Mag Left-Handed laminated stock I can pilliage for the action that I can re-barrel into 338 Win Mag.

Being an old traditionalist,,,my top three are Winchester Pre 64, Ruger M77 Hawkeye and the Sako M 85.
All CRF and some adjustable triggers. These rifles would be great in any of the traditional calibers, ie 270 Win, 308 Win and 30-06.
