Yesterday was a very good day. I picked up this used Topper 30-30 this spring as an extra for when the Grand kids were old enough to hunt with me. Of course i could not resist taking it hunting to try it out. Shot a nice whitetail doe last night at about 70 yds. One shot, and the 150 gr Winchester factory bullet did exactly what it was supposed to do. The Topper is wearing a 4x Leopold compact scope that fits it nicely and clears the old style hammer well. I shortened the stock an inch for the kids and I also like a short stocked rifle. The Grand kids may have to arm wrestle me for this one! This may become my favorite rifle! 44 Man

Nothing they make today compares with that gun for easy carrying and balance. Congrats on the meat.

I have a Handi 30-30 with a 4x Weaver on it.
I love it, I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Light to carry, light recoil and shoots 1" at 100 yds.
Can't beat a good 30-30!!
