    2019 I was overseas and having difficulty sleeping at night due to time zones I took to cruising TM. Made some interesting buys as seemed I was often first to see new listings. One was a 303B shorty. Guy had a start on it for $150 so I asked if he would do a Buy Now for that and suddenly it was mine. Flicked a message to a mate who could and did collect it and held it for me. What was interesting was the seller was an old trapper and pig hunter and this was his daily carry on the trap-line and for bush walks with his dogs. One day servicing traps he put it down and then could not find it. 2 1/2 years later he was back in the area and came across it where he had left it but the bore was rotted out. Using old military ammo obviously. He had a mate in the Army who was an armourer and he fitted a NOS replacement barrel. When I got it the bore was a good 7/10 and shiny. The wood and action are sound but showing some pretty rough usage. Still a nice bush gat tho for $150.
