Love mine! Not a commonly seen model for some reason. Grab it and enjoy!

I see those, rarely, around here, but would love to have one. I did see a used one, six months, ago, on the shelf, but left it alone. Sure enough, changed my mind, went back the next day and ... yup, you guessed it, gone! If you want it, grab it. The Hunter is not a common Single Six. They are hard to find, even new, and, especially, used.

The only negative to the Hunter, compared to any other Single Six, is the weight, but that's not necessarily a bad thing for accuracy's sake. Would make a great range gun, even if you never took it hunting.

"Pulled the trigger." Won't be able to pick it up for 40 days thanks to California law.
