Single Shot Winchester

Yep, I'm kinda partial to my 1885 Low Wall in .22 Magnum. A rifle that I built about 35 or 40 years ago! It even has a single set trigger that cuts the trigger pull weight in half!

A picture of original magazines for the Colt Woodsman Match Target 2nd model and for the FN 150 / Browning Medalist pistols. This little assortment of magazines is worth a small fortune ($1,000.00 or...

Magazine or clip?

I always heard that rifles like the M1 Garand used an enbloc "clip". The 1895 Lee Navy used a "clip" to load the "magazine". The Springfield O3 used a 5 rd "clip" to load the rifle's magazine....

A good hand...........4 of a kind!

I picked up an FN150 (same as Browning Medalist International) about 3 months ago with the intention of using it for steel plate matches. At the time, I did not realize just how scarce (or pricey)...

Today's weather...........

I think it was in the low 50's when I got up about 6:30 this morning. By noon it was over 70 and headed towards 80! Can't wait for summer to get here!

Buying procedures...........

Same process here in Georgia. Walk in, pick one out, show your CC, pay and walk out! Maybe 30 minutes if you "shop" a bit first!

The third factory mag showed up in the mail today. I was surprised because it had to come all the way from the left coast! Pretty nice, just slightly used. Between the 3 factory mags and the 3...

Home on the range...........

I did just that this morning. I grabbed some bits and pieces around the shop and made a pellet trap and then spent an hour or so blasting away (poofing away?) with a Beeman Tempest pellet pistol. I...

I have been looking for extra magazines for my recently acquired FN 150 .22 target pistol, you know the ones that also fit the Browning Medalist made of unobtanium? Well, a recently acquired friend...

The one I usually grab to carry is a Kimber Micro 9 with an inside the waistband holster carried behind the hip. Second choice is a Kimber Solo 9mm in the same holster! If I'm going into the woods,...

Many years ago, I got a bolt action 12 gauge shotgun in trade for something else. Nothing would do but I thought I had to shoot it! Undoubtedly the most uncomfortable gun to shoot I ever picked up....

Next time they will just use the deck gun to impose their will! Wonder how much this little escapade set the Venezuelan government back?

Model 69/69A sights

I have a Winchester Model 69 (pre A) with a Lyman 17A front sight that uses interchangeable inserts and a Lyman 78 (I think) rear target peep sight. Works great. The front sight fit right into the...

22 Rifle................

Based on your punch list, I think a Winchester Model 69 or 69A would fill the bill nicely. They were made in America, they are not heavy, most have quite nice triggers and many came with semi target...

I have a model 69 (not an "A") that I have had for quite a few years. A while ago, I put a Lyman rear target sight on it to go with the Lyman front sight that was already mounted. I really like this...

You might want to check out the Sig Romeo 5 sights. They are lightweight and made like a 1 power short scope but with the red dot. I have one that I use on a KelTec CP33 pistol and find it quite...
