Default SOLD

(scroll down for RUGER 10/22 listings)


Make:
Sporterized Enfield 303 BR

Model:
Santa Fe Mountaneer, by Golden State Arms Corp. Pasadena CA

Caliber:
303BR

Location (city or county):
High Desert, Inland Empire

Price:
SOLD

I might be open to trades in .22LR and 9mm, long guns or semi auto handguns, worst I can say is no, as I don't really NEED any other guns, but... in this crowd, we all have GAS (Gun Acquisition Syndrome), right?

Will ship (Y/N):
Possibly, as this gun is right on the border of being a C&R (After some research, it appears the Golden State Arms Corp went bankrupt in late 1966, so I think we can safely call this a "C&R" sale, thereby simplifying the transaction!)

Other info:

This is an inherited gun, my memory is it was shot about 3 times, one time "dang"... a second time "dang", and a third "that's enough"... I've heard these kick like a mule!

It is a "sporterized" Enfield, I have the original "manual", it was sporterized by Golden State Arms Corp in Pasadena CA, evidently sometime in the mid 60's.

The "model" as stamped is Santa Fe Mountaneer, I did find a little bit of info on it online, it appears it was a relative (not sure if it's the idiot cousin, crazy aunt, or rich uncle!?) of the "Jungle Carbine".

It's been stored for years, a bit dusty, and a little bit of wear on the stock butt and fore grip (probably light sand/steel wool, and a good coat of oil or poly would make it look new, but I'm not going to mess with it). It's not dented or dinged up from what I can see, there's definitely some wear, ask if you want more detailed pics. Barrel looks clean and shiny when looking down the bore, I will try to clean it a bit since it's been sitting, but it's been stored in a cool dry environment most of it's life!

The rifle includes the original magazine, a "vintage" strap that has some corrosion around the buckles, but is serviceable. The case is negotiable, it dates from around the time of the rifle, but I might have use for it.

Ask questions, or make offers via PM, I'll try to respond within 24 hours. I'm on the High Desert/Victorville area, but may be able to meet part way within reason for the transfer. PPT consistent with C&R rules published on CA DOJ site (meaning it's simple compared to a typical transfer).

Beautiful stock & metal.
Never heard of a Vintage Sporter being worth what an original is.

I picked up a sporter a few years ago & got an original stock set & hardware to refurbish back to "original configuration", but in a blond stock color.

I've had "estimates" on pricing, but this is a fairly rare piece (not sure if it's a unicorn, or a flying pig!?), so I'm open to offers... I've seen the more common Santa Fe "jungle carbine" a few times but this one is likely far more rare from what I've found.

I figure you can't buy much of anything that is in clean shape and goes bang for under $300, and this is pretty much like new, with the exception of vintage dust. The bolt action is very smooth, everything operates as it should, and I'm sure it will be a great piece for the right buyer!

Forgive my ignorance, but I thought once it is sporterized, that takes it out of the C&R category. Am I wrong?

It was sporterized in the mid 60's, so it still was "manufactured" or if you wanted to be 100% accurate "re-manufactured" over 50 years ago. Due to age alone, it becomes a "relic".

C&R laws are typical of laws passed by legislators who wouldn't know which end of the gun the bullets come out of... very confusing and easy to get "wrong" unless you take a great deal of time to parse and dissect them, and even then, mostly as clear as mud.

I have that exact same rifle with the same stampings except mine had the barrel and magazine stripped to bare metal and the barrel received a swirl finish and a clear coat after that. I got it from a buddy several years ago and have always been curious what its worth is. You are certainly right about the kick, it will put a hurting on your shoulder for sure!

Just curious..2 groove barrel or 5 groove? Ive owned several of these over the years..and most were 2 groove barrels. Still shot fine, shot cast bullets very well, oddly enough. Thanks!

Default SOLD

Make:
Ruger

Model:
10/22 customized/upgraded

Caliber:
.22LR

Location (city or county):
High Desert, Inland Empire

Price:
SOLD, scope still available

I might be open to trades, never hurts to ask...

Will ship (Y/N):
Probably not... but can meet within reasonable distance

Other info:

Bought this last year (so it's a 2016 model), has been lightly shot, and was the start of a "Ruger habit"... since I now have a "few" 10/22's, I decided to sell this one to make a bit of room. This baby shoots well, and looks pretty sharp too!

Originally a wood stock model (can be included for the buyer), I put on a nice synthetic stock, light wear on both stocks, nothing serious. I like the gray/black color scheme, but one of my sons likes the wood, so buyer has choices!

This has Williams Firesight fiber optic sights (and couple scratches around the rear sight from swapping out the original sights... DOH!), a NCStar Picatinny "see through" riser, so the iron (fiber) sights are still usable even with scope mounted.

Auto bolt release is installed (you manually lock the bolt back, but just have to "flick" the charging handle to release - very slick, works great!

Nylon (?) bolt buffer installed to make cycling about a zillion times quieter (unscientific estimate, but it's WAY quieter than the stock steel one!).

Also has an extended mag drop lever that makes it MUCH easier to swap magazines in a hurry (particularly nice if you use an Allangator Tri-Mag!). This particular mag drop sticks out just a little on each side of the trigger guard, so you just "poke" the release with your forefinger or finger of choice, and the mag drops!

Currently has a Leupold M7-4x scope, worn and has some fairly bad scratches on the black finish on the eyepiece (someone before me tried to free up the eyepiece the WRONG way), but it is perfectly functional, and a very nice scope. I can sell with or without the scope...

If I hadn't built a couple custom 10/22's, i wouldn't part with this, but the safe is getting crowded, so something has to go...

Will include at least one stock 10 round rotary mag, more may be available to buyer on request!
