Well, since it has the extremely rare gtooved trigger I would advise even more strongly against modifying the rifle, those things are like hens teeth!

Never heard the term used that way. Grooved receivers are that, grooved receivers, claw mounts are a specific type of mount.

I would be very surprised if any 69s were ever fitted with claw mounts, that is an old European scope mounting system.

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...

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...

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?

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.
