    I remember when all the old coots were snatching up the pre-64's when Winchester announced the discontinuation of the 94. After the speculators decided the fad had passed I picked up an early 50's model with a nice honest wear petina for under $400. I don't shoot it much but it's a good looking rifle and a great piece of Americana.

    I own exactly ONE .30-30, a pre-WWII single shot "Euro-style stalking rifle", that weighs about 4.5 pounds, that I bought in 1970 at WAFFEN BENNEWITZ in "K-town", BRD.
    (It was just too "purty" to leave in the shop.)

    Inasmuch as .30-30 is not a common caliber in German rifles, I've wondered numerous times about who had it custom-made BUT the rifle's not talking.

    yours, satx

    30-30 is a classic. Had only two in my lifetime but would like another at some point.

    Never have owned one but have shot a few.

    Meh on the round itself. Never had a need for it and it has not really interested me as a plinker.

    Not that I have anything against it per say and if the right deal came along I could own it but I am definitely not pursuing it.

    I have a hand me down pre 64. I’ve shot the shit out of it. I’m a hunter yet never have I hunted with the 30-30. They will do pretty much what most any other rifle will do out to 200 yards or so. Hit targets and kill animals.
