Default Question for hunters

I'm looking into buying a hunting rifle. I grew up hunting with my grandfather but stopped when I got old enough to drive, and got a car, job, hang out buddies, girls, etc....Now, my 12 year old has told me he wants me to teach him about hunting. I learned with a 30/30 rifle. I'm shopping for rifles and I have found a pretty large assortment of prices for what seems to be the same rifle. As far as a 30/30 goes, what is a good price to pay new, and any manufacturers to stay away from? Thanks for the help.

Not sure which ones to stay away from. I learned with a 32 Win. Special and still have it today. Can't go wrong with a Winchester. You might want to look at Henry rifles they're nice rifles too, I bought one for my son and it's a pretty sweet little rifle. Price wise shop around and find the best deal you could order one online and have it shipped to one of your local FFL dealers and do the paper work there.

I've seen them priced from $300-$600. Just not sure why the wide variance in price for the same rifle. Could be number of rounds it will hold, or type of sites, or maybe just the finish on the wood. I don't remember the manufacturer of my old one. It was sold 20-25 years ago. The local sporting goods store here has a couple priced around $350. I just don't want to end up with something made with inferior parts and have something break that could injure the shooter.

Yeah not sure about the difference in price, might be a walnut stock vs. a pre fab stock, different type of sights? Myself I would stay away from the questionable manufactures and get something a bit nicer for his first rifle. He's going to remember and cherish this for the rest of his life and possibly hand it down to his children.
