Absolutely. Just take one second to feel the casting part lines. I have several Uberti CF revolvers that I bought used, priced in the $400-450 range. Now if one were to be blindfolded and handed...

Late last winter a friend found an incomplete original .22 Long at an antique shop here in New Hampshire, he talked it down to $15 (fifteen!) and bought it. Missing side plates, toggles, firing pin...

1885 Low Wall .22 Short Winder Musket

I got a call from one of the local gun shops about one today, a customer was in offering it for sale. The manager wasn't going to buy it before talking to me, I'm his usual suspect (or fish) when it...

Edit:

I got the Lyman sight today, it is as described, as new in box. I removed the scope and installed it, but those four holes on the receiver sure are ugly. Plug screws will go only so far in...

I finally found the proper Lyman 75EW peep sight for the 69A Competition. I found it on an eBay auction that closed a few minutes ago, advertised as NIB and looks it from the pics. I got it for $90,...

I'd rather find a decent used Uberti .22 single action. Seems like a better value even at twice the price, after all it's only a couple hundred more. Give me a real forged steel frame, tight loading...

I know that one is supposed to clean from the breech but I have stainless steel rods that have brass cones to protect the muzzle. I think that that is sufficient. I also think that more .22 bores...

I modified a paint can opener for this sort of task. They are shaped like a screwdriver with a bent tip, a bit of grinding and it works a treat. I keep it in my gunsmith screwdriver case for just...

Zamac frame? Not for me. Look around for an Uberti, you'll get a forged steel frame, all proper steel parts. It'll cost more but you will enjoy the quality long after the sting of the price is...

I Googled Remington 700, from all indications it is a CENTERFIRE rifle. There is a centerfire forum on RFC, perhaps that is where this post belongs.

If you can find a Colt Official Police .22 you might give that some consideration. When I found myself needing to come up with some money I made a choice between a nice S&W 17 no-dash and a Colt OP,...

Nice looking pair there! I like the antiqued grips on the bottom one, did you do them? Were the brass trigger guard and back strap stock to the piece?

I've yet to find a .22 at any of the local...

Beautiful! The small frame rifles are lovely, so graceful looking. That 1877 is stunning. I have one of the rifles, it's in quite good original condition. A few years ago I looked long and hard at an...

That's the version I have, a 1974 vintage in 95% condition. None of my Winchester lever guns, 1873, 1886, 1892, 1894, have checkered stocks, I prefer them un-checkered.

Very nice rig, I'll have to keep a lookout for that scope. The No. 20 is a svelte little thing, it makes a Winchester 1890 look cumbersome.
