I've got eight weeks to decide how much I want to spend on this old gun. As it is, it's nothing to look at. The bluing is all brown, it has scratches and dings all over, the stock and forearm are worn very badly. I don't know how to abuse a firearm to get it into this condition, which happened in it's first 50 years of existence, not since I've owned it. I've got guns that I bought new in 1969 that look used, but pretty close to new condition. They certainly don't look like this.

On the way home Saturday, I stopped at a different shop and they had two 1906's and two 1890's that were in much better condition than mine and IIRC were priced around $375 for the 1906's and $450-500 for the 1890's. They also had a 61 for $650--I've been giving that some thought.

Here is a link to the gunsmith who is working on my 1906. Lots of photos.

A friend recommended him to me. From the looks of some of his projects, he does good work.

Winchester Model 67 chambered for short, long, and long rifle.
My dad bought it new about 70 years ago, and now it is mine.

When I was 7years old my first real gun was a rem 514. I carried it everywhere and no telling how many rounds I put through it. Years later my uncle borrowed it for his stepson to use for a first gun. His wife and stepson left and the 514 went with them never to be seen again. Bout' 1975 a man walked into gas station where I was with one still in box for sale.Said he had shot 50 rounds thru it. He needed beer money, I bought the gun for $60. I shot one box of shells thru it,wiped it down good and hung it on the wall. I have no son,but maybe someday a grandson? RH P.S. Stupid me, I threw the box away!!

Here's one you won't see too much of these days. A Winchester Model 75T military rifle. This one dates to 1942. I almost cracked the 5 shots <1" at 100 yards with it.
