I have an 87M that's stamped Sears. Contrary to gunshow legend, these were NOT military trainers, and never were. They were intended for kids as a step up from a BB gun, and were appealing to WWII and Korea vets who bought them for their kids.

    The action is interesting. If you fire an 87M or any other Model 6 derivative, or a High Standard Sport King or its derivative Sears Model 25, if you fire a shot ("click") and hold the trigger back, the bolt stays to the rear until you release the trigger, at which time the bolt feeds and closes on a fresh round ("clack"). As with most "click-clacks", my 87M, Model 6, Sport King rifle and carbine, and my Sears Model 25s are remarkably reliable with most 22LR ammo.

    The original rear sight is a large flat spring steel stamping that looks like a cheap stamped levergun rear sight on steroids, with the rear sight leaf being rounded with a circular aperture or "ghost ring" as they are called today. They are fitted with an elaborate flanged elevator. The sights were and are prone to breaking from embrittlement and are pure Unobtanium today. At a Harrisburg gun show ~10-12 yrs ago I saw a customer pay Ken Bean (The Sight Man) $295 for an intact 87M rear sight and elevator and he was as excited as a little kid at Christmas. Ken was pretty happy, too.

    I'v seen intact 87M rifles in VG-EX condition SELL for as much as $850. A western PA gun shop had a beater 87M in a mildewed stock and missing the rear sight and trigger guard price tagged at $350 and a couple months later it was gone. $500-$650 is fairly common for guns missing the original rear sight and now wearing an aftermarket sight.

    Congrats!

    Thanks, Noah! Appreciate the background information. Mine certainly is not completely original but the connection to my father and the teenager trying to shoot rats with it makes it an important new member of my collection.

    Now to get the old Savage Sporter back into fighting form. The springs and magazine are available, even firing pins if I need one, and with luck, Mike Acri may have some ammo on his weird-stuff shelf.

    I didn't buy, but traded into a really nice Savage 99H Carbine with barrel band in 30-30. The carbines, with or without bands, are the only Savage 99s that I collect. This one is original, no extra holes, mint bore, no rust, and in overall really nice condition. Sorry no pic, but I don't do self-hosted pics anymore since the Photobucket fiasco.

    Also picked up a Remington 600 in the very rare 35 Remington chambering, one of my favorite cartridges. Metal is 98%, and wood is maybe 95% with a couple small "character" stains and dings from honest use. Was definitely scoped at one time, but I'm just going to plug the holes as I can see the front bead and the pistol target type rear sight mounted forward and the vent rib. I had a 600 Mohawk in .222 I bought new upon turning 18, and used it on woodchucks and coyotes into the mid-80s when I sold it to a friend who desperately wanted it. He's used it on deer ever since, and at a recent class reunion he told me he still has it, and still uses it every year for deer, and it's still delivers dime-sized ORH accuracy.

    I don't hunt anymore, but I like to develop cast bullet loads and plink with the 30-30, 30-40, 303 British, 35 Remington, 38-55, 375 Winchester, 405 Winchester, 444 Marlin, 45-70, and other classic cartridges.

    Gave into the Black Friday onslaught of deal advertisements and picked up a few new lights. I ordered at 1am on Black Friday and they were in my mail box on Monday afternoon.

    Another PL-Pro for my last (yeah right) AR pistol build, and I decided to upgrade from only carrying a key chain light right now to a small pocket EDC light. The two smaller i1R2 Eos rechargeable key chain lights were free bee's, and they are pretty damn nice.



    Updated EDC gear with the i3T EOS 180 lumen single AAA battery light.

    Acquired a nice 1942 stamped Berretta 1934 bring back today. Was sellers Dad's who brought it back. Came with some nice late 30's and early 40's ammo Holster odd, looks like a period correct with the military belt type clip but guessing someone did some rawhide work, and burned their name into it - lol.

    I wanted to improve my grip on my P-32 while minimizing the effect on concealability. Kel-Tecís magazine extensions didnít appeal to me, so I went looking for finger rest style base plates for the magazine. There are many options out there, but all seemed to be just a little too big, too long, too pronounced. Before my P-32 I carried a NAA Guardian, which had an available finger rest base plate that I always liked. So I ordered two base plates from NAA. The magazine shape between the two guns is slightly different, the NAA is shallower and the front profile slightly rounder, so I had to do a little modification to get them to fit correctly on the P-32 magazines. But I succeeded and I am very happy with the results. It provides good purchase for the ring finger on the grip but isnít too long and the horn doesnít stick out as far as others Iíve seen. Fifteen bucks shipped and an hour or so of fiddling with a narrow wood chisel and a rat tail file and they fit and work.

    Been wanting SMALL hand stops for a long time, but couldn't bring myself to pay $30-$100 for ONE hand stop, then pay $8-$10 to ship a .5 oz piece of plastic.

    Stumbled upon these SIG TREAD kits. For the price, it can't be beat - gives me many options and parts I can use across several guns.
