Sweet rifle!
I have been looking for a match to my Win 100 in 243 but when I see one it is way pricey

The 100's are a nice rifle, I also have one of those in .284 caliber. Its a great shooter. Now ....if only I could find an 88 in .284.... Then I'd be Happy !

In the last 2 months I have seen 2 of the Win 100 in 284
One was at a Cabelas in the gun library but I cannot remember which city, I travel for my job and have been in 6 or 7 different locations in the last 2 months

Wow,
That's a beauty! I need one of those for my collection.
I have a M100 rifle and carbine in 308 as well as a M88 rifle (also in 308) and need a M88 carbine!

I traded the model 100, but I still have the 88. Not hunting much anymore and I have two other 88's as well so I might downsize a bit.
