400 would be reasonable. If decent shape.

. I want to replace my Ruger mini 7.62x39 with a heavier thumper for hogs/truck gun...anyone with experience in this model and I need 2 mags also, have not decided on a scope or red dot yet.

That was the first rifle I used growing up in Pa. Killed many deer with that type of rifle. Great in the brush and was easy to handle in crab apple thickets. Only thing I ever had trouble with was the magazines. Didn't always want to pick up the next shell when pumped. Other than that great all round rifle.

It would work, but a pump shotgun would be better
Sent you a PM, check it out & get back to me
Thanks

Default "Could" Be Great

The weapon could turn out great if given the right treatment. No gas worries so the bbl could be cut back to 16-18 inches. Wooden stock so the LOP could be chopped back also. To saaaaay...?...13 inches. A small 1-4 Leupold with heavy duplex could be added. The stock could be painted or dipped. Any gun show will get you mags...AND...the 10 shot are available also. Like a shotgun,you can't short stroke these,especially with the 30-06.

At $150 you could afford to drop a little into it to make it.....YOURS. ---- SAWMAN
P.S. Hey Frank,I would gladly give you 4C$ for that Mini. Offer is only good for 48hrs.

Default Don't Shoot It 'Til

Drop it off with me. Will get it fixed up the way "it should be" will tell you when it is ready to be picked up and how much. After p/u we go to the range and shoot. Simple !! ---SAWMAN

Had one for about 40 years I guess. Bought it in a BDL for my kids to hunt with in Pa. Never had a problem with it. Loved 165 gr. boattails. Shot lead bullets with gas checks, very accurate . The only problem seems to be the clip. After you insert it give it a hard rap with palm of hand to make sure it is in. Have seen them fall out at the ranges because they were just slipped in. Overall a good gun. My children and friends killed many deer with it.
