Thanks Ed ,eyes getting old .
Man I love that Mauser too !
That 1895 is sweet!
This was taken just before Limbkillers fence fell down from the weight!
Mine. I have better pictures but they are locked up on Photobucket
My contribution.... 375 Winchester "Big Bore"..
That's one sweet Winchester @CSM(RET)
This one I inherited from my Grandfather - some of you may have seen
its picture before, but since this is a special thread, well...
Grandpa bought it BRAND NEW in 1906. Obviously, it's a model 1894, but also a SRC.
Caliber is 25-35 Winchester. If you look REALLY close, you can see his Regiment Number
(did I mention he was a sergeant in the Royal Northwest Mounted Police?) stamped into
I AM going to shoot this, in his honour.
Grandad and his horse, Harry, patrolling the wild Canadian West in 1906...Based (for
a time) in Fort Whoop - Up... dealing with all imaginable sorts of undesireables... this
rifle was THERE. Alexander Ruthven Douglas was his name.
That is a nice one CSM! I see it has a medallion inletted into the stock, what is it commemorating?
I've never seen a Big Bore with a curved pistol grip. My .375 is a straight grip with a checkered stock.
Below with my 1895G Guide Gun.
Sorry, I double posted....pulled the trigger before I was finished.....
Yeah----It has the same stock and medallion as a "Antlered Game" model... Which I have only seen chambered in 30-30....
I purchased this one to replace one a burglar wanted more than I.
And like you, before this one popped up on GunPoker, I had only seen Winchester "Big Bores" with straight grips..
According to the "Winchester Xspurts" this one was never made.....
Just picked one on GB.
Those XTRs are nicely finished rifles. The 220 grain .375 is a real thumper on both ends. I probably shoot as many, or more, .38-55s through mine as .375s.
Here is mine. It's a 94 AE (D.O.B. late 1992/ early 1993). .30-30 cal. with a Williams peep sight (helps old eyes).
Thank you @Maxfield911.
I'm glad this old thread got re-introduced. You guys have some nice collections.
I bought this today from a private party. It came with the original box and docs. It's a Henry H001 .22 (the basic model).
My big thing is the Winchester Model 94 30/30 (1949-1975):
I have a Marlin 336 in 35 Remington:
I don’t think I posted the pic of my companion pieces 44 mag and 45-70
My Marlins. Top to bottom 45-70 1895 XLR, .357 1894 Cowboy and .22 39A.
Uggh, Bobby Tyler is slow in getting my other Winchester Deluxe Octagon finished. The wait is killing me! I will post pictures of all the Winchesters when the other two arrive!
I just recently discovered the nice Marlins. I have the above 1974 Marlin 336C 20" br. in 35 Remington (a great buy) as well as this 1975 Marlin 336C 20" br in 30/30:
This rifle had a scope at one time as it had the hammer extension:
I have noticed that the modern Henry lever-action Big Boy is disassembled very much like an older Marlin 336/1894? What do you guys think?
