I was fortunate enough to snag this 1970 finger groove from a used gun shop today for $175.00. Looking forward to sending some rounds through it 2morrow. I have an older carbine from early 80's I bought when I was 14yrs old and another carbine from late 80's. Tell ya what. Those lil rifles r indestructible and I call them the M1 Garands of .22's. They just keep firing!! Any idea how many finger groove rifles were made? They ran from 66 to 71
Love the rare uncommon checkered version of the finger grooved stock......took a long long time to acquire the one i have , guarded by the RSSE dance team..........Splitz

I need to find the manure pile you stepped in to have such good luck!

I tried to upload a pic but it keeps saying the file is too big. I don't know how to make it smaller. Its in excellent condition too! Has a cheezy 4x15 old Crossman scope on it but the sling swivels r original and has a nice old leather sling as well. He wanted $195.00, but I got em down to $175.00. Now I want to buy a .44 mag with finger grooves. They r not cheap!

Per the request of many members...let us know if there are any concerns. It is common sense stuff, but the whole internet thing is new to many folks - May help if you are a first-timer.

To have the ability to PM or start a thread here:
  • Be a member for at least 3 days.
  • Have at least 10 posts.
If you would like to skip these requirements, support the forum by becoming a Site Supporter. Any commercial activity requires an active Vendor Account Upgrade.
  1. Post an asking price, period. No Auctions, No Links to Auctions. (Simply use the new Auction Section for these items.) Items offered for trade should have a reasonable dollar value posted.
  2. Your state of residence must be included in your profile. Posts without a state listed will be deleted.
  3. Please leave the post up after the sale...so that others can get ballpark asking prices in the future. Threads will automatically be moved after 30 days of inactivity.
  4. Be civil.
  5. Sell and buy at your own risk...There have been several reports of a scam artist wanting to send payments to a Nigerian email scam. Use common sense and follow up with your buyer and seller. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. We suggest strongly that if you do sell anything of value or transact a firearm you contact the person directly before you proceed.
  6. Any criticisms you may have regarding the item listed for sale should be addressed privately via the PM system. This includes any alternate price "offers".
  7. We have noted instances where bad results have occurred when an email address or telephone number is posted openly in an advertisement. Scammers abound. We recommend that all initial contacts between sellers and buyers be made via the PM system where contact information can be exchanged securely.
  8. All Federal, State, and Local laws should be followed. Ignorance of the law is not an excuse. https://www.atf.gov/

Let the moderators or the admins know if anything seems by using the report button.
If they ask that you send via an untraceable method, just know that you're taking a huge risk.
