Found a 783



Log in to see fewer ads
I've thought about a 783 to go with my 780 for a while. I ran acrossed this rifle at a gun show last weekend. 170 out the door. I had to clean the shipping grease off the bolt and action. I shot it tonight and the old weaver 3x6 scope zeroed nicely.

You did good on that deal . Looks like it is in good shape. I have had 2 different 783's and still have the original that I bought new years ago . I have probably taken more small game with that rifle than any other gun I own .

The older Marlins are a lot of gun for the money plus I have always preferred the tube fed models in the woods .

Great find, that's a good price. Looks to be in great condition, 783's are usually really accurate shooters, I know mine is. Congrats

Sweet find. I have one too. Inherited from my father. 22WMR. It still groups amazingly well. Ring s steel with ease at 200 meters. 300 meters was asking too much of it. Certainly not what it was designed to do though. But no squirrel is safe within 100 yards. Lol.

Wow you got a great deal. Thats nice. Those old Weaver D4, D6 and V22 are nice little scopes. Especially the early ones. Enjoy it.
