Oldest rifle you have that is shot often

Ok, I uploaded the one good pic I have of that Hawken. This is in the middle of the cleanup/restoration that I did. I had gotten the surface rust off, , cleaned the bore, replaced the nipple, oiled the barrel and begun polishing the wood. Still had to shine the brass and do some detailed cleaning. I...

Oldest rifle you have that is shot often

If I'm not bad wrong Investarms did make BP Guns for Cabela's and other Box Stores. Most likely my Traditions are out of the same plant. A lot of people turn their noses up at Traditions, but mine were tweaked by the guy that built them (not me) and as a result they are good solid rifles. The Mount...

Oldest rifle you have that is shot often

But dang it, I have also started shooting a Hawken, cap version, which someone kindly gave to me. .50 caliber. Now I have a hankering to moving more into black powder and maybe a nice flintlock? On a side note, that Hawken is nice. It is not original but an Italian copy. Came out of a garage of peo...

Oldest rifle you have that is shot often

To revive an old thread here. I am considering the purchase of a .45-70 trapdoor Springfield conversion rifle. Still in its original military configuration. Seriously thinking about it! :D That .45-70 Govt is a serious round, gets meat on both ends when shot! ;) :lol: Yes but I am used to the likes...

Forgotten Peterson.

About a year and a half ago my wife and I were visiting her family in "Minnie/sconsin," On the border near Minneapolis. I walked into a little smoke shop there and ended up picking up a beautiful Peterson, don't ask me the model number, I do not have all the Pete's memorized. I smoked it a couple of...

Oldest rifle you have that is shot often

That .45-70 Govt is a serious round, gets meat on both ends when shot! ;) :lol: It's not that bad. The ones I've shot kick less than a shotgun. Yeah it just depends on the rifle that the round is loaded into. I've been eyeballing the Henry .45-70, I have the brass frame .44 Mag Big Boy and I love i...
