Default Just bought a 17-3...how did I do?

Just returned from a local gun show.

Ran across a really nice model 17-3 with an 8 3/8"bbl there!
It was in as new condition, with its original box, papers and even the sealed tool/cleaning kit.

Fellow I bought it from thought it was made in the 60's,
SN is 6K33XXX anyone got an idea of the mfg date?

I gave $560 for it...I will pick it up later this week, and I'll post a photo or two of it.

I felt it was a fair price, but I'd appreciate
any feedback on it.

Looks like 1974. Price was good in today's crazy .22 prices. Joe

You did great!

I gladly paid about that much for this 17-4 without any accessories 2 months ago .


Incidentally ...
I will be entering an "Postal online" iron sight handgun shooting match this month ....Guess what handgun I will be using..... ; )

I might be a bit biased, but that's a great looking gun,
and I don't think my photo will be nearly that good!

Yes it was at Kane County, and I missed the 18-3.
Did you check it out?
Was it in the main hall or the north annex?
