A few '60 questions
I'm debating either a bolt gun or a Model 60.
Thirty years ago, I had a M60. I kept it in pristine condition. Like a **** idiot, I sold it. I can't believe I was so stupid. I thought I'd always be able to get another if I wanted to. I never would have guessed at what happened to the brand.
What's the availability like of very good condition North Haven made 60s? Are they as rare as hen's teeth? How much would one in great condition go for? Well, let me clarify: I don't care about the stock condition, as I'll be putting a Boyd's on it. I'm talking about the hardware.
I'd like a shorter barrel. How difficult would this be, considering there is a tubular magazine? I wouldn't want the front sight reinstalled, it will be used with a scope.
I like the feature that holds the bolt open after the last shot. If I got a model 75 (shorter barrel), could I just drop the action from a newer one (with the hold open feature) into it, or wouldn't it fit?
