Who owns this "back woods"? If it's private property the landowner may well have ownership rights and they should be easy to identify. If it is public land it's more likely to be up for grabs.
I agree with those saying it's not been there very long.
And I disagree with anyone recommending lying to the authorities about a firearm.

If it has been reported stolen youre in posession of stolen property. You might lose every firearm you own. Not worth the value of a couple hundred dollars. Turn it in, if you get it back good karma, if you dont get it back youre not out anything.

Just my two cents worth.

There are no fried cheese sticks at the Cody show

It should be less than an 8 hour drive for you in July if you jump on Interstate 90.

It is a 2 day drive for me so I am sure you will beat me there.

Flysalot concurs




But speaking of Cody, have you guys been to the "Dug up Gun" museum downtown? The name speaks for itself, a treasure trove of rusty burned and lost-then-found relics. A must see if you visit the city.

It is all work at Cody, no time for Cheese on a Stick. See how serious FlysAlot takes his work.






Well, maybe not ALL work......here is 22AGS playing hooky from the McCracken Research Library at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. What a slacker!

He saw I was wearing one and being a slave to fashion didn't want to clash. Incidentally boys, I've got a backlog of show'n'tells to load up soon. Two signed books one each from JWA and Flysalot, one 52C, a nickel-plated 1890, a second year 9422 without any barrel markings except the proof mark, and a little ditty on the 77 I recently went ten rounds with. Coming soon.

Scoutman,

I apologize for participating in your thread hijack.

I agree the 1906 has not been out in the weather long, I also agree an attempt should be made to find the rightful owner as it is the proper thing to do.

If you end up keeping possession of the rifle you will find a good resource here for information.

Again, sorry I helped sidetrack the discussion.

Best Regards,

Yeah, me too, sorry Scout. We do that but stand ready to answering your questions at some point, usually sooner rather than later. I would also say the gun is relatively freshly abandoned. Someone knows they left it behind, just not sure what the motive or situation entailed. Go through the proper route of good will in finding the owner, and if no one turns up and the gun doesn't come back as the object of some crime, you have the raw material to hand to resurrect a fine 22 rifle.
