Re: Who on here is old enough to remember......

Cimarron 44wcf 1873 trapper $750 shipped to your FFL. Small chip in forend wood by the barrel band. Fuzzy front sight post and dang near invisible rear sight. Very smooth action. More accurate in a younger shooter's hands.

1894 Winchester SRC and a story

Always wanted an old 1894 Winchester src and brought one home today. The outside is pretty worn, but the bore is bright. Made in 1910 and came from the family that inherited Emmett Dalton's estate. The local shop tried to tie it to Dalton but there's no paper trail. Good story though. https://adobe....
