I know, I know!
But Darren007, this rifle had been "bubbaized" when I bought it. I mainly bought it for the action anyway. The military stock had been chopped down and re-shaped, the original sights are gone, and the barrel is nearly shot out. I'm a big .308 fan, so why not make something nice out of the old girl instead of letting it sit on some pawn shop gun rack collecting dust, with the chance that some knucklehead that doesn't appreciate what it is use it as a "truck gun". I will never be worth much like it is, even if I tried to restore it to it's original battle configuration.
HiBC, I've not heard of the Montana Rifleman action, so I'll look it up.
