Title: Start thinking!
Post by: Captainkirk on February 03, 2020, 10:11:06 AM
OK, fellow long gun legions...listen up!

Due to the unbelievable response by members submitting some incredible photos for our banner contest, I have decided to start a thread here in long guns for photos of you fave 'extended muzzle' guns. No contest or banner for any of this, just a good, old-fashioned photo album of some of the incredible rifles I've seen bits and pieces of around this forum. Let's try to do 'em up with great backgrounds and accoutrements and such as we did with the revolvers! Just about anything goes...rifles, carbines, even stocked pistols. If there's one thing I've found, it's that visitors to the site as well as the regular members LOVE EYE CANDY!  (jh Let's give them something to ogle.
Since this is not a contest (though there might be a 'best-of vote later) you can submit any time with no deadline, and as many entries as you like. I know Scooby had some jaw-droppers in the past that got swallowed up in the PB fiasco of his Henrys, Winchesters, Marlins, Burgess, etc as well as some drop-dead gorgeous flinters and such. I'll be starting a new thread once a few picture get posted here; maybe we can have Dave move the photos and blow them up along with your description text for the photo gallery?
Anyway, hope this turns out as well as the contest did!

This is a great idea Capt. Everyone likes content. It's what brings people in and it also keeps people interested.

Things like this can breathe new life into our little corner of the inter-webs.

I know we're a primarily Colt cap n' ball pistol site, but 99% of us are just "old gun" guys. We like any guns from our chosen period of the 19th century and before.

You guys post em' up and I'll move them around to make it easy for all to enjoy them!

Well, maybe I can scrape a couple of photos up since I managed to procrastinate long enough to miss the banner contest. Can Dave (or you) consolidate the pictures as a "sticky" thread album of long guns?

We sure can EM. And once we get a few submissions, that's what I'll do with them.

Rat bastards. Even the pix that they allow through are either blurred or have their disgusting watermark splashed all over the photo.
I will never use or recommend PB again. Even though I pay for access to my Flickr account (due to the high quantity of photos stored there) it's only a few bucks a month...not 400 a year!...and they have never held my pictures hostage and demanded blood money. In fact, they gave me the option to either move or delete my pictures down to under 1000 and keep the free account or upgrade to Pro and gave me a full 6 months to do it.
I really enjoy the editing software so upgraded, and not sorry I did it.

I can still get my pics. I just have to copy them and move them to Imgur. I do a few here and there when I need one but it's a PITA to try to move over 2000 pics that way. I suppose one day they will freeze my account and I will lose what's left but I'm just too lazy to do it.

I already took everything I wanted. Flickr allowed me to create new albums, then I could select and move en masse (once I figured out how to do it!). What's left I really don't care about. What PB did to tens of thousands of forums and small accounts will and never should be forgotten as one of the lowest, dirtiest scams in modern history.

Post by: scooby on February 04, 2020, 07:06:53 PM
Here is a pic I ran into tonight in my storage. I used to shoot both of these rifles a lot! They are extremely well built pieces with tight tolerances, outstanding fit and finish, and have very smooth and consistent bores. They respond very well to cast bullets and black powder. I have taken deer with both rifles. The Browning sports a superior high gloss bluing and has very nice wood. The USRAC is a bit more plain in the wood and has a dark, flat colored bluing that is tough as nails. It is also a take down version. A special feature about it though is that it is a limited run from the factory of "1 OF 500" and is marked so on the barrel.

If you have never held and shot an 1886, know that they are big and heavy rifles weighing in at a bit over 9 pounds empty and a tad more with a magazine tube full of 45-70 rounds. With that being as it is, they are very pleasant to shoot as far as recoil is concerned. When packing one on a hunt, it is easy to feel like the King Of the Woods knowing you have such a brute to take on a job.

Thank you Jim. She is a real power house!!! And I tell you, an 1885 has the finest fit and feel for off hand shooting.

Title: Re: Start thinking!
Post by: scooby on February 04, 2020, 07:34:02 PM
Well, one just can't deny the merits of the classic Henry. I always compare it to the Colt Paterson when one considers the start of it all regarding the lever rifles and revolvers that we all love so much. I took multiple Mountain Lions and Bob Cats with this rifle back in my hound running days. I have used the ladder sight to consistently ring gongs out to 300 yards. To this day, it comes in second place only to the 1873 Winchester on my list of favorite lever rifles.

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, 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.

Another rather unusual rifle, this one is a German Stalking rifle in 8.15 X 46R, brass is made from either 30-30 or 32-40 brass, so is equivalent ballistically to those calibers. I have done some if each. A very nice light weight rifle!.

In case you're not familiar with the 25-25 Stevens caliber, here is a case next to a 45-70.

The only thing I've had as nice as some of these was my Weatherby Mark V Deluxe but I sold it last year.

Wow Mazo,

I always thought the Hepburn's were an ugly over sized beast, that was until I handled one.
They are a true classic, and I must add a very small action. Pictures never do them justice.
I believe Hepburn built the falling block action so it would never have to be removed from the rest to load.
