I well recall the days when my store would only allow 10/15$ on Japanese rifles for trade in and being genuinely worried about the two or three dozen that were constantly stacked in a corner of the basement. Couldn't sell them for 15/20$. Finally found a "sucker" that wanted to trade me decent Winchester 1894 rifle with a few special order features (that he knew nothing about) for the whole pile straight up. Plus my 800+ mile round trip to the middle of nowhere Iowa.Well I’ll probably never sell it so I think i’ll just let it be. For 700$ I think I still got a fair deal.
