Springfield 87M



Log in to see fewer ads
I picked up a very nice 87M, saw it a short time ago and had decided if I saw it again I would get it. It has the original sling and really I believe the only thing it would need is the rear sight. Bluing and stock are both in great shape, we will see if it functions well maybe tomorrow.

Nice old rifle Glenn. I can't believe you didn't snatch it up the first time you saw it.

I took it out and shot it today, ran perfectly and it was 20deg out. I didn't shoot any groups as it was to cold. It may have to go squirrel hunting.

Did a little more shooting today, just getting the scope zeroed and making sure it wasn't going to fog up. At 50yds it will put them in the head I believe, such a fun gun to shoot.

Thanks guys. I was just cleaning it a little while ago and I realized the mount was loose so I'm sure those groups will tighten up. I had pulled it off several times working on the scope and apparently did not tighten it down at the end.

The gun is a little heavy for carrying around as I like to still hunt a lot. I call it a small timber gun. Hard to believe I use to pack a 50lb ruck, M60 machine gun, ammo and other gear and it never phased me. Now an 8-10lb rifle and I'm done in after a few hours. I guess age, broken back and a few years of chemo takes a toll, haha. Better than the alternative.

grg - how many guys have I talked with who have admitted that they sustained a lifelong injury while in the military? (several) And how many times have I come unglued with the way our politicians have tried - and are trying - to destroy our country? (again, several) I come from a military family.... Almost ALL served - including my mother! And I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your service and your sacrifices. Be assured that there are many "out there" who appreciate you.....FredT

Thank you Fred, that means a lot. Military families give up so much as do law enforcement and others, sad the disrespect given at times. I was just talking with a buddy of mine that does the same thing as the FBI agents that got killed this morning. Amazing people like them watching out for our children.

My uncle was Air Force and his oldest is an E9 in the air force, brother is a sniper deployed right now and another just retired. Their sister was also in, entire family was in. My nephew is looking at going in the guard right now as a combat engineer, I went to the recruiters with him. I don't like the political climate for it right now but he feels he needs to do it. You have to respect these young people going in now as most get deployed at some time.
