    That's not a bad looking old dog. Much more than a mongrel. Do tell more of your plans and a little about the old dog itself.

    Grandpa's 1890 rabbit harvester. Gallery model he had re-chambered to take longs and long rifles. Serial # dates it to 1908. Notice the crappy bluing. Totally my fault. Was in the takedown case and hiding under stuff on the closet floor, and I missed it when grabbing the other guns when the flood was coming. Spent 6 days taking a bath. I was sick when I found it. Somewhere, between pinochle hands, Dad and Grandpa are discussing what an idiot I am, and they would be right. The first experiment up for this is the learn how to use the chronograph outing. The second will be next winter and see if the Birchwood Casey cold blue kit is worth the time and $. It can't look any worse than it does now lol! Interesting feature on these if your not familiar is there is no trigger disconnect. Hold the trigger and it will mag dump as fast as you can rack it. I think my best was 5 brass in the air lol!

    That is so cool.. What is the make & model please ??? Did not know that in the day you could get guns re-chambered for the new Long & LR 22 bullets.. Was the gun restamped to reflect this change??? Was this done via the factory???

    As the years go by, I so love these turn of the century (The last century) gallery guns.. Would love to shoot at an old time 1940s shooting gallery... maybe someone knows one that still runs...

    It's an 1890 Winchester, and the caliber stamp on the barrel wasn't altered. Still says .22 Short. I'd guess the local gunsmith reamed the chamber. It's still a hoot to shoot, which I haven't done in years. Will be interesting to see the targets and what flavor of ammo it likes best. I have 5 or 6 different brands to run it on. I'm also taking my 10/22, and Dad's old beat up squirrel rifle, so it will be a 3 generation shoot. Should be fun to compare/ contrast them, if I don't hole that new chrony lol!

    Many thanks, that is a nice looking rifle.. The metal but plates on that era 22 rifles are just beautiful.. Its a bit of a let down when they went to the Bakelite and plastic in the 20s & 30s...

    Just a little something to bump this back up. The pics are an anniversary Colt. The only 1911 I still own that has not been fired.IMG_0671[1].jpgIMG_0678[1].jpgAttachment 54208
