You've probably seen these before, but if not here's some of my vintage Marlin rimfire levers, from a display I did earlier in the year.

This 1944 made Remington 241 was bought by my Mom for my Dads 1948 Christmas present,it was new old stock at Anderson Hardware.I was born a month and a day later.I started shooting it at about age 5 1/2 holding the stock back under my arm.My Dad and I did quite a bit of squirrel and rabbit hunting with it,and my dad killed a rabid dog on one occasion.Hardest use involved it and me falling off car fenders at speed while spotlighting rabbits,and dips into ponds while shooting snakes and bull frogs, camping trips,most things a pre teen and teenager on a long leash might get into with a 22 rifle. Then all this was repeated by my nine years younger brother that was even harder on it than I was.I rust blued it in the mid 1970's,in 1984 I did it over with better results,and refinished the wood,and replaced a few worn and missing parts.A while back a gun collector and trader saw it and commented "someone took good care of this rifle".I didn't say a word.In '88 I took first place with it in a rimfire silhouette match.It's a gift that keeps on giving!

This is a horrible picture but it's an original finish 1939 Mossberg Model 26b (father in law original purchaser). Front sight hood is replacement. Finish is 98%.

Boley,
That's REALLY a nice bluing job, and I've done a bunch! Glad you have that old heirloom, I know it means a lot. I wish every gunguy had his youth rifle that he started on. Here's mine, a Springfield 187J. My dad took me out when I was 7 and let me prop it on his shoulder to shoot squirrels in the Georgia woods. To a little kid this thing's as long and heavy as a telephone pole. It's been refinished by me in epoxy spray, and now that my dad is gone it's a priceless memento of times spent with him under the trees.

22AGS; Do you think when your Dad gave you that first one he knew it would lead to a lifetime of rimfire addiction?! LOL

Well, it didn't hurt none that he used to turn me loose even younger with a Daisy Red Ryder and a pocketful of BB's in those plastic pouches. I'd be dropped off on the side of a road next to pine forests, and wouldn't come home till it was both dark AND I was out of ammo. It was great growing up near rural woodlands and fields--Wide Open Spaces!
