Here is another addition. It's a lot of fun and meets the "Old" criteria better than anything I have. The walnut is straight grained with a dark vein running through it.
Great thread full of nice stuff and fun to root through too!
Thanks
Mike

This is my 1948 Lithgow model 12. It was my grandfathers and had been collected by police when he let his firearms licence expire, so naturally I made some calls and saved it.

The exterior is a little on the rough side, however I was pleased to find only very minor pitting in the bore after giving it a very good clean 🙂

Love the little action and simplicity of this rifle!

Newbie here. First post. Erma 1936 E36 .22 Target Rifle

This is my 1936 Erma E36 chambered in 5.4mm (.22LR) rifle that my dad brought back from Germany after WWII. It's a single shot bolt action with a 25" barrel. https://www.flickr.com/photos/120296...57711419156633

Springfield Rolling Block

This is a rifle that I bought about 50 years ago. It is a Model 1871 Springfield Rolling Block rifle in caliber 50-70. It was made in 1872. There were about 10,000 made for the government, but the military only took about 9,000 of them. The remaining rifles were sold on the commercial market and I believe that this is one of the commercial ones. Some pictures:

Winchester Low Wall

This Winchester was originally a Winder Musket but had been modified before I bought it. Since it was not and never would be a real collectors piece, I decided to make it into a sporting rifle. I had the barrel relined, shortened, chambered for .22 magnum and recrowned. Then, I added the single set trigger bits and set about whittling a new stock. The rifle dates to about 1900 and I did the customizing work in about 1982 or 83. Some pics:
