Dang you wallet and armslist

Well tonight I almost went through with a trade for my 1970 Rem 700 BDL varmint with 1971 barrel in 243 for a Savage 10 pc. When going back through all the pictures trying to find some for the interested party I saw this rifle was more than a rifle. This rifle is not even close to one of those out of the box rifles that are cheap and put together in a heart beat. It's gone through how many hands, killed numerous of god knows what (a few groundhogs on my end), and has the accuracy still to boot. These old ones may not be overly priced because of their age, but their stories behind them are probably uncountable. Anyway I feel bad about the deal that was transpiring so here is a contribute to a family heirloom.
When I first brought her home and threw some goodies on it.

A picture of one of her first kills for me.

A kill from this year and new farm I growing fond of

Some profile pictures, some barrel wear

Scope base screws on barrel

Rear aperture sight screws on receiver

Some Checkering? Don't really know the story on this. I do know when it came to me it was originally in this VLS stock, but I also know most VLS stocks don't have checkering on them.

The bolt jeweling worn off

Bottom metal, most likely not original

The most important picture yet, my daughters first trip out with me

I know the rifle isn't really worth that much, but I think it's earned its place.
If you guys have any stories or photos of something near and dear to your family or you feel free to post them onto this thread. I appreciate hearing the stories.
Also my paps Savage 340 30-30, worst trigger known to man lol, but still can shoot 1moa with 125grn speer tnts at 100

Figured I'd put my best group on here. 400 yrd 2 3/4" group 5 shot. Might get a little better if I could get a little more power in the glass and practice a little more. For shooting targets I'd have to say the dot reticle doesn't work so well for me.

Nice write up and pictures. I agree, they sure don't build them the way they used to. That's a beautiful rifle, hunting grounds, and daughter. It's good to see young kids around guns, and hunting. Nice shooting too! Looks like she's still got it.
