Wow, those are fantastic Fingers.

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

It's a Uberti I bought from Cabela's in 1997.

The Tryon Rifle I bought in around 1990.  Back when I was doing Rendezvous/Mountain Man reenacting

That is a rare thing of beauty Mazo!

Thanks for the clarification Fingers. I updated the library.

Another unusual gun in my collection;  this is a Martini Schuetzen in 10.4 X 38R (41 Swiss Rim Fire).

Here is an old well worn work horse. The mighty 1886 Winchester. She was manufactured in 1892, and chambered in 40-82 WCF. I have owned it since 2003. It has taken two deer in the past.

Scooby, I HAD an '86 Winchester, sold it last year. It was in 38-56 caliber. I made brass by forming 45-70 cases in the reloading die. Still have the dies and some formed cases. Yours looks to be in well cared-for condition.

Thanks mazo. I've rubbed a lot of linseed oil into the wood over the years to recondition the wood. All of the original finished was long gone. Most all of the metal has turned to patina by now with very few remnants of blue left to her.

That's a fine example Em.

Do you shoot smokeless or BP in it?
