saw one in 222 Rem at a nearby pawn shop on the way home from work today. Rilfe was in about 70% condition, good bore, and a sub $300 price.

I know Savage built them for a while in 30-30, 222, and 22 Hornet. I've never messed with one, but that price for a 222 got me thinking. Only that seems kinda hoeky is that you need a side mounted scope on them

they want $279, I doubt I'll buy it from them. Their prices suck, but it got me thinking about one none the less

I have one in .222. Not a bad rifle, but a terrible trigger, and non adjustable. Dads been looking for one in 30-30 for some reason.

My uncle had one in .30/30
.222s are uncommon and worth the premium.
They tend to be very good shooters.

$279 for a used 340 with no scope or scope mount is a bit much.

$150 for an average one. $200 if it is EXCEPTIONALLY nice.

That caliber is becoming a bit forgotten so you won't find ammo in a lot of places.

I had a 30-30 and the barrel sounded like a tuning fork it was so ill-fitted in the stock. That said it shot great....Go figure.

I have three of them, a standard 340 in .30-30 (no scope mount), one in .222 with an older Weaver AO 10x, and a 325C Compact in .30-30. They're fun little guns, and reasonably accurate.

Just refinished and reblued one for my dad in 225win.

279 is a little much for one in 70%

I've got the .222 rem, 30-30 and .225 win. Nice guns, mine are walnut and blue steel. Older ones were better made. I really like the.225. Awesome jack rabbit gun. If I can find a gunsmith with experience rebarreling a 340, I want to change the 30-30 to 25-35 winchester. If anyone here can recommend a good gunsmith send me a PM.
