Ultimate "Ole Timey" Squirrel Gun....



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently found this 1895 Lo Wall .22LR that has a bunch of special features.

The gun has
  • Upgraded wood and checkering
  • ebony inserts on forearm and grip
  • #3 weight, 30" Octagon Barrel (gun is close to 10lbs)
  • Swiss Buttplate
  • Midrange Vernier Tang sight
  • Three leaf rear sight
  • Globe front sight

The forearm had a substantial chip so it's being repaired. The bore is very good, I have not shot it yet. I am having it lettered...

Mine is pretty close to yours, but it is a 22 Short, with a 26" bbl. Non fancy wood, but has a Swiss Buttplate. Same #3 bbl. Single set trigger, same sights, except for the bbl. sight is a standard sporting type with serrations.
At 50 yards it will keep 10 rds. in the 10 ring. The bore is worn and lightly pitted.
Fine little rifles, a bit on the heavy side. Big Larry

I wouldn't call it little..I didn't even check for a set trigger but it must be with an adjustment screw.

Did you bother to letter yours?

That's a beauty for sure. Congrats. I'm still dreaming of one, even if a plain Jane version.

I picked up an 1885 High Wall in .22 WCF at a local shop a year or so ago, paid around $500. I make the brass from .22 Hornet ammo, I shoot the Hornet ammo out of the 1885, then use a Winchester hand reloading tool to load .228" cast lead bullets over black powder.

The OP's rifle is a beauty!!

I could have been more concise in my original post, it's a Low Wall, Model 1885, that was made in 1895.

Yes, mine is lettered. I may not have bought one, but I needed a 22 to go with my Winchester 22 collection. I now have a fairly complete set of Win. 22's. Big Larry
