I don't own a camera or cell phone so don't have a lot of pics of my guns and when I do get some it is for selling them and the girls get them for me plus most of the ones NIB are all greased up with stag gun grease for storage
I can share pics of some others that I have the same however and a few of mine that I think are special
Cheers

1 ordered a set of these 12, 20 AND 28 GA when I heard about them and they are still unfired and I have all the boxes and paper work
They are a set of the browning model 12 made to the old winchester model 12 specs
I also bought a second one in 28ga which I have had briley install choke tubes in since they came with a fixed modified and that one I have shot a few 100 rounds trough

Some Real Nice stuff there old timer !!!
Thanks. Never saved IMO expensive ones since I could not afford them in those years but now even average Joe's guns I did stash are crazy expensive . Never even shared one of the 2 dozen wingmasters either :p Have to admit I am kind of shocked myself how many I have NIB when going through the list this is just a few of them some go back over 40 years Most of my rifles in fact 90% are sold off and gone shotguns NOPE cannot seem to sell those :D:D
From when I was a kid not too many weeks I didnot have a gun on lay away some where here at a shop and when that got paid did another stew. russell, bobby and sonny loved me never did business with nick
But see in those years I would buy two a lot of times one to keep and one to shoot imagine one could afford to do that then but could on an average mans salary and with lay away and no interest

Yes those are some very, very nice guns! At today's prices you really should consider selling off some of them now and spend the money on a vacation, new truck or whatever. Remember, you can't take them with you and apparently they will be sold off anyway.
But, I know how you feel about selling some of them. I have a couple that I'd find it very hard to part with myself.
Nope I sold a few 100 since 2010 these stay with me unless the family needs something we cannot swing with household cash. Not a vacation guy and old truck is working fine :)
I want to make sure there is a good value left for my daughter to put on a mortgage some day plus they way the values are rising crazy to sell them now guns I was getting 750 for 4 years ago now getting 1500 and makes and models not being made any more

I had one in the 760 model 30-06 cal. There's days I wished I had kept it. Very accurate it had a floating barrel. Looked just like that.
I collected the 760 and 7600 like I did the wingmasters since I was a pump man trying to get one of every caliper and almost did other than a 2506, 300 savage and a 222 I think rest I had
Had some super rare ones and one collector on nutz once I started to sell eventually got them all
I kept a few 243, a 280, 35W , 7mm08 and might be a 270 left also new not sure
rarest one I had which took me over 30 years to find was this 66 bdl 760 in 223 only a handful made over a few years
Planned on keeping it but when buddy offered 2300 plus shipping it was gone
Clay found it and I bought it from him originally as you can see in the pic

Yes but I am puzzled with what has gone on with Honda. I am hearing people canceled there orders last year after waiting 8 months. As it sits now, Honda is the only one that is not advertising 2023 models, while others have 2023's arriving on there lots? The dealership showed me their orders which have not been even been confirmed by Honda. The news says Honda is shutting down a lot of there small engine stuff to build electric?
Because people don't buy much and have no idea what it has been like to get anything the last 3 years
Your dealer is wrong they are stopping making vehicles by 2040 and going all electric and it blows me away why they would not know what is going on since every dealership got a memo then again your post office doesn't read memo's either:p:p
They are stopping making lawm mowers this year and maybe brush cutters they say so they can make MORE ATV's and you may be caught up in the gap they expected to complete the change over and move
Not my words

Honda North America will also be discontinuing production of lawn mowers and other types of select small engine powered equipment in 2023. The bulletin discussed the issues of maintaining compliance with more stringent environmental regulations and maintaining competitiveness as reasons for pulling out of the US lawn mower market.

The bulletin, which I quickly scanned over, also mentioned Honda either decommissioning the facility that currently manufactures lawn mowers and retrofitting it to make ATVs/UTVs at the end of 2023. It also sounded like Honda would be temporarily cease production of ATVs (four wheelers only) for a short period of time while production of these machines is moved to another facility (possible the one where mowers are made).but that has not been confirmed

Did that Bdl 760 have the pressed in checkering (inward vs raised diamond) like on my 700 Bdl in 30-06. I think mine is a 1965. I can't really tell from the picture but it looks like it does.
that gun had what remington called it's basket weave checkering and not going to help you nail down a date since it was used into the late 70's on bdl until they went to the fleur de lis checkering

First run of Bdl 700. 172xxx serial number. 1967 from Remington book. Pressed checkering and Fleur-de-LIs chambered in 30-06.
Is that what you gun is. It is a keeper if so 1962 I think was the
first year of them without looking or that might just be the 700 not the bdl I didnot think the fleur de lis was that early but could be wrong but not up to speed on rifles either
