I would like to know what is the most common easy to find mauser/box cannon/broomhandle out there.

And about how much would a red 9 run?

Most common will probably be inter-war commercial guns brought back by GIs. Figure five or six bills for an ugly or refinished shooter. Red nines are not terribly uncommon; any gun show worth the time will have one or two. They will command larger price tags, though. I don't think I've seen a "Red 9" in any condition for much less than eight in a long time.

I won't shoot Broomhandles anymore. As much as I love them, I have seen one too many cracks/fractures in the bolt, and that makes me uncomfortable as all hell.

Awwwww, C'mon. Where's your sense of adventure?

A bolt through the head never hurt anybody. :p
