For that price buy the Remington and have a good guaranteed shooter! I think a thousand seems a little steep for World War II Remington shooter.Quest continues and i want to say again that i appreciate the opportunity to learn from you all. My preference is/was a WWI vintage shooter. I don't mind a WWII refurb at all. I do want to keep both eyes in their respective eye sockets.
Question: you’re me. You have an opportunity for either A) a Springer 1930 serial 840xxx that looks very clean, bright barrel, laquered stock, limited stock stamps “P” and opposing T’s on bottom, nothing else, “B” on base plate, greek return. Price asking about $1000. Or option B) a clean Remington, high serial, barrel date 1942, scant stock for about the same price.
A? B? Or keep my powder dry?
