Thanks, i paid a 100 bucks for it all.
They want 50 bucks for 2-4 feet of track on ebay and the grapple sells for 175 to 250.

All the time i spent rolling in the hay and had no idea how they got it up there.
30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

250 Savage: The Original short action, compact, high velocity cartridge.

If I would have had someone who looked like Teri Garr did back then, I would have been rolling in the hay,too.

It was still a job cutting the levers and latches out and arranging so they worked proper,not made for heavy loads.
