I just found a purchased a dream gun of mine on the internet and found out the seller was just 50 miles from my home. I hunt a lot in the thicket in the mtns. of NC and it is a perfect gun for me. The Remington auto 35 whelen with 18 1/2" barrel. I have placed a 1.5x6 power scope on it and plan to reload 180 grain Barnes TTSX slugs to bear & deer hunt. Ready to go in a couple of months. This photo is not a carbine.
