Post your most valued score you've found at a gun shop. Or private sale.

I've got two. this model 63 Winnchester. If you read the book Unintended Consequences you'd appreciate it more I imagine. I do.

My best score must be this Lee-Enfield No. 7 Mk 1, .22 trainer, made in 1948 by BSA for the Royal Air Force. It was a private sale for a ridiculous low price; even though the original mag was missing and it was covered in surface rust, it turned out very fine after a bit of TLC and elbow grease.

ok!

the author writes of a particular value added feature encountered not just on his own model 63 but others as well where it would fire full auto if you rested your finger tip through the trigger guard and around to the side of the receiver. Probably horse fiction but when I read it I remembered...and then one day.... on the shelf..there she was...

I regularly paroose my LGS bargain bins and have scored pretty good a few times.
In with a mess of slings bought for $25 bucks was a NOS Romy SKS sling, 2 web Garand slings, and a new basket weave leather one
Same LGS, different time, a tin of 1140 Chinese X39 AP on strippers and 2 Russian SKS ammo pouches for $200
600 rounds of reloaded .41 mag (with data sheets on each box) with dies, $200
Rifle wise from 1 LGS, 2 Chinese SKSs for $325 (when they were going for $300 a piece) and from another in the same period, a Paratrooper SKS for $300

Gun shop numbers matching 1916 Erfert Luger $585 a couple of years ago and Spanish Destroyer carbine at auction for $200 3 weeks ago.
