...it's been good to own you.
Bought it new, a couple years ago. Swapped out the factory trigger for a Timney, removed the iron sights and put on a scope, took off that scope and put on another one, sighted it in. 16 rounds fired all in all. Took it out of the cabinet to look at and fondle a few times. A beautiful gun.

Friday evening I brought it to the LGS, and put it on consignment.

.270 Win is a little much for extended paper punching; my hunting days are over - too old and 'stumbling' for still hunting, no interest in sitting. Or in killing, for that matter. About time I admitted it, and moved on (hah).

I had some pics, can't locate them now; probably just as well.

Did you set a price...?

How much may I ask...?

I own a M700 BDL chambered in 7mm Rem Mag, bought it back in 1980. According to my range book: 253 rounds fired in 36 years.

$685. The dealer gets $35 of it. He expects it to sell, even this time of year. It's so clean, and so doggone pretty.

I always wanted a Remington .270 and never got one. I had a 6mm BDL and still have my 7BDL however I can't see at my age of doing any more hunting. I don't have the desire to kill anything anymore and having to trek with a quarter or part of an animal would be physically impossible. I don't have any desire to sell my 7mm as it has great sentimental value however one day it will have to go. I feel your pain but maybe a younger feller will find a good use and hope it finds a good home where it will be beloved like you did.

Yeah, I know how it is VT.
I took my Super Blackhawk to the range a few weeks ago. My bones don't like the .44 Mag recoil any more. I still like it but my wrist doesn't.
I still have some magnum ammo for it so I think I'll try it one more time..... just to verify.... that it's time to sell out of the .44 Mag business. :violin:
Oh well, things change. Bet I can find something to fill the void after it's gone. :)
Come to think of it, it's been a long time since I've owned a 4 5/8" Blackhawk in .357 so....... It's all good. :D

Time for a .44 mag carbine?

A man's got to do what a man's got to do!

No, I'll probably just sell everything .44 Mag locally. Dies, brass, primers, bullets, an across the chest holster and of course the revolver.
After an on the job injury (I own the joint so no $$$ out of the deal) I had some silly idea that after I healed I'd go hiking in Alaska.
Long story short, not happening.
But I did work out some heavy loads to carry in bear country.......Those are very usefull where I live. (Near the Texas Gulf Coast). :sarcasm: :cheesy:

I read your posts about those loads. I like the .44 mag (a lot) and can still shoot 'warm' loads in my revolvers without pain. I feel the angst of your coming 'disentanglement'.
