Perspectives on a Winchester Model 88

455 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  KILTED COWBOY
I'm looking at a Winchester Model 88 chambered in .308

It will be used for range fun and long range plinking vs hunting

Anyone have a perspective to share? I love levers and this relatively unique gun looks like a good acquisition

Thought about the semi-auto Model 100 (had one picked out ready to order until I heard of the slam fire recall and the seller didn't know if the Model 100 that they were selling had ever been fixed)

Both the model 88 and model 100 Winchesters were great rifles and it was a real shame that Winchester decided to take them out of production. If you can find either a model 88 or model 100 in decent shape at a reasonable price you wouldn't regret having either model.

It is a great rifle.
Internet prices are all over the place from $800.00 to over $3K guess it depends on condition.
For my money I will stick with Henry lever actions. Built and all materials come from the USA.
Great customer service. Great reasonable prices. Can buy a new rifle for less than a used Winchester
And if you are not crazy about tube fed rifles, they just started making them with a side loading gate so you have two ways to reload.
