I went and got one of my guns back from the pawn shop and they still have that original 92 Winchester in 32-20. I wrote down the serial number and it was made in 1921. I wish somebody would buy it so I'll quit trying to figure out what I can stand to let go of to get it.

Scooby, you're killing me with that Henry and those 86's. Both are high on my wish list.

I don't ever recall seeing those '86s before, Scoob. Absolutely outstanding. I keep telling myself I need one, and your picture is not helping me at all!

I just love the looks of the patina on that particular piece.

Yep...one of the things that attracted me to it the moment I saw it!

Those are both real beauties Mike.

But I really like the Sharps!

Wow, those are fantastic Fingers.

Really liking that engraved Henry. Is it an Uberti, or a Henry Repeating Arms?

Here is my Pedersoli Sharps "Schuetzen" Model in 45-90 caliber. I had emailed Pedersoli for information about this rifle and Gloria responded that they had only made 100 of this model. I feel pretty lucky to have found it! I purchased a Ron Heilman Soule rear tang sight for it.
