I did know of a few rigs that had AC, none of my did. In 1964 I bought a 1962 Pontiac station wagon, our first one with AC. My first pick up with AC was a 77 Ford.

Pete thanks for the help. Now it looks like the gun was made in 1941. It does have the hammer with small pattern. I am going to call it a 1941 for sure now.

I have killed deer with a 94 30wcf but OL' '30-30 says he would shoot one all the way out to 25 yards. Yes the 30-30 will kill game accurately on out there a ways. Years ago when I had better eyes I killed a ground hog at 220 yards. It didn't even need a follow up shot.

That made a real nice looking sporting rifle. I would almost be tempted to have my 1898 made Krag rifle done like that, but it is complete but for the wood over the rear sight and the long top piece to the muzzle. It is a joy to shoot like it is.
