Yeh! maybe so, but if you don't use it, lose it, somebody else might appreciate it more than I?

If any of you guys out there have never tried an 88 like this, let me tell you, it is money well spent. Smooth action with excellent groups and fast follow-up shots. I would highly recommend this rifle to any collection. I already have 5 plus 2 FinnWolf's.

  My Dad had both the semi auto went to me but it wasnt reliable, the Lever went to my brother and I would say the Lever is the better gun.  This is a great rifle.

I dont know anything about this gun but its kind of cool looking. Is it tapped for scope mounts and does it ever jam up at all. Is it a light gun with kick or is it fairly heavy?

284's are bringing upwards of$2500 and 358's, well, I've seen a few at $3500. Most 243 and 308's are now fetching $850-$1500 . RL, yours is truly a bargain. I haven't bought one since the price jumped over $450.
 If it weren't for me spending my extra cash on my Ar 15's right now, I would take it off your hands for sure.

ETA : the fact it has been refinished, as well as it being a post'64 has no bearing on the value any more. Most folks who are looking for 88's don't even worry about that any longer.
 RL, I am doing some checking around, I might be able to help you sell it.

Wow! I cant hardly believe 300 people have passed up the chance to own a true collector for a song, Shocked is this the economy or are there no Winchester fans out there?  I'm thinking since the price is low people are thinking it's a crappy gun, well the price is now $600.00 .  after some research.                              SOLD!
