Re: model 71win a 200yd deer rifle

My carbine hasn't been shot much and is accurate enough that I'm comfortable with it out to 200 yards if the deer isn't moving.

Re: Sixgun, about them funny looking washing machines of you

I remember Grandma's was in the back yard, not the best for her in the winter, and I got in trouble once for shooting her clothes pins off of the line with my BB gun. Should add that it wasn't serious trouble, she was the hunter in her family growing up and could out shoot the rest of us.

Re: What's a good price on 71 winchester receiver

Thanks Guys, it's Winchester from the 1940's, been reblued and needs locking lugs, loading gate, and few more things. I probably should just sell the barrel and get Mike Hunter to make a new barrel set for my old takedown 86. That would get me the configuration I want and top quality work too. Terry

Guys, looking at that 71 receiver on the gun auction site to hang a new 50-110 barrel from. Is $450 too much considering I'd still have to round up some parts?

That's Hornady's abbreviation for Flex Tip bullets. Soft rubber pointed tips allow you to load them in mag tubes and get better ballistics... in theory anyway.
