Gun 1 is a Mossberg Chuckster Model 620KA. A single shot 22 mag that I have found to be very accurate even with the open sights. Manufactured 1960 to 1968. The feral cats are beginning to hate me





I even scored 150 rounds of ammo for my efforts:



Gun 2 is a Winchester "boy gun" a Model 1902 single shot .22 short, long and long rifle.
Not any bluing left, stock is cracked, glued, and pinned. front sight is missing but the gun shoots fine!
I have a lead on a new aftermarket stock for $60 but it is back ordered
Manufactured 1902 to 1931





Gun 3 was a Winchester Model 1894 30 WCF takedown.
It had about 50% bluing left but shot well.
I had to refuse it guys. I told my bud it was worth too much he better sell it himself.
And he did for $1250 to a collector.

I have an almost identical Winchester Mod 1904. It is a very accurate little rifle

Thanks for the compliments, gentlemen.

I've owned several 10/22 rifles, and that 1975 10/22 Mannlicher is the most accurate of the bunch. The CZs are pretty sweet shooters, too. The photo doesn't do justice to the fiddleback in the CZ Mannlicher.

All the gunsmithing and polishing done by me. Currently wearing the Trijicon 3-9x off my AR, looking for maybe a silver Nikon 3-9 for it.

Gonna be a mean squirrel killer.

Awesome. Nice looking rifle and I'll bet it's a real tack driver.

Wow.

I don't know if it's in silver, but I bought the BDC .22 scope for my rimfire, it's a 3-9 x 40, and it's a wonderful picture - but the BDC is bullshit - way optimistic based on the ammo I had. But the scope is superb, bright and clear from one end to the other - a good deal for $150, I think.

My favorite rimfire...

I've been helping a local elderly couple for several years. Mainly just little chores around their house like changing light bulbs or moving furniture/appliances on occasion. In return, they've shared pies, briskets, and vegetables from their garden with my family. They recently had a party for their 70th wedding anniversary and it was a small affair. They've outlived most of their friends and family, including 4 of their 5 children, so it was mostly just a few neighbors. After it was over, I was rounding up my kids when the man called me back into the house. He had a small cardboard box in his hand and said he wanted me to have it. It was an old Colt Woodsman. His father had bought it for him when he was in grade school and he used it to keep the squirrels out of their pecan orchards. He hasn't shot it since the 50's, but he took it out of the drawer every year or so and wiped it down with oil. He knew I liked to shoot and thought it would be a good starter gun for my kids one day. He wouldn't accept any money, but he asked me make sure it the boys took good care of it and to try and keep it in the family if I could.

I just got a chance to take a good look at it and it's a very nice little pistol. Manufacture date is 11/18/1931. Still has the original factory test target and manuals. The box is falling apart, but it's an interesting piece of history in itself. The fit and finish of the pistol is very nice. Very, very smooth and the trigger is much crisper than my 90's era Buckmarks. I've only had time to run one magazine of .22LR through it and it was flawless. At 50', it outshot those Brownings, as well.

As the old saying goes, "They don't make 'em like this anymore."
