    -Browning BBR bolt action rifle (made around 1978) chambered in .257 Roberts. Fired very little, all original in excellent condition. There were very few of these made in this caliber, you simply will not find another. It comes with the Browning sling as shown along with around 150 rounds of ammo, RCBS 3 die set and brass. $850 for this package OBO. I am located in Houma or will ship either rifle for $15 extra. I will consider HK, Sig & Gen 4 Glock pistol trades. I will also consider another AR.

    -The Model 88 .308 is confirmed by Winchester as a 1956 production. The action is extremely tight. Unknown round count but honestly not a lot. It doesn't even feel broke in. I ordered the correct front sight hood from Numrich when I acquired it. That is it. I do have to tell you that whoever had it previously cut the stock about an inch or so. It had a dryrotted recoil pad on it which I removed. Whoever cut it did it so well that I didn't notice until a few months after I got it. It is absolutely straight. The rifle itself for its age I'd give a good 7.5-8 with no rust anywhere and minimal wear. A true classic Pre-'64. $700 OBO.
