when the 325 wsm came out,  winchester made very few super grade III rmef models in the 325 wsm and 300 wsm.  i bought one in the 325 and it was a beautiful gun.  i got divorce a year ago and had to sell it,  and now the values have gone through the roof.  i really wish i had it back,  but hind sight is 20/20 as they say.

it was a slightly shortened barrel with a factory flash hider no bayonet lug and standard pso-1

civilian issue and Izmash military configured furniture in 7.62x54, sold it for two grand to a best

friend in 98.Wish I would have kept that,the stuff I would be able to do to it now.

Remington 600 in .222.  Sweet little rifle but needed the money long ago.  Have replaced since & don't trade in anymore.

I sell guns for living, i don't regret any of those sales.....

But i never sell my own guns, so I don't have those psycological problems ..........

i have a pre 64 model 70 .243 featherweight.  my dad had it since the early 70's and gave it to me.  he had never fired it,  but it had been fired,  i shot and hunted with it for about a year and quit carrying it once the new wore off to me.  it is one of my favorite guns.

I sold my first center fire rifle, a BAR, that I had for 25 years. Nice bluing, good shooter and it carried real nice until I scoped it. I haven't sold a gun since and if I ever find another one like it I will buy it.

Once I buy it, I never sell it. Its just the way I am.  I figure if I like it enough to put into my collection, there it will stay.  And, I always try to find good deals, so I do not put out mega figures of money.

wow that really sucks

 

my dad had an original colt revolver, [old school cowboy that he inherited as a kid] an original coach shotgun, a springfeild mod 1903 all in semi-perfect condition. sold everything for 300, because my mom got scared because of a story on the news about a kid that shot themself.

 

Oh and before that someone offered him 1920's thompson SMG in not perfect, but good condition, for 120 and he turned it down because he thought it would cost to much to feed it.

 

as for me, I have wasted several hundred dollars on handgun sights, rings and bases, and I screwed a winchester mod 1890 WRF pump gun. which doesn't seem to bad to me after I read about what everyone else did.

My Heart goes out to all that had to part with their weapons So, what have we learned in class today boys and girls? NEVER SELL YOUR GUNS! We can
always find something else to sell to make some cash, For example, Your wife's shoes. Ha Ha Ha

My Dad,

 For falling off the wagon and selling his Sako in 30-06 with a redfield topper.

 I laid awake nights dreamin about inheriting that rifle.

So now I'm stuck with my ole Remington 700 BDL in 30-06(imagine that?)

 But I think I'll live.

Rock

A Remington 1100 my Grandpa bought for me.

He died a few years ago and I sure wish I still had it.
