Sorry I guess I wasn't too clear, I meant just as a comparison.
When I bought the 77/22 about 15 years ago I paid 375.00. Around that same time frame I bought a M70 .270 XTR for about 475.00. On Gunbroaker there are several 77/22's for about the same price as similar M70's to the one I have
There is no way I would sell my M70 for less than the 77/22 but I'm not selling or buying................Right Now!
