FN 1912 Single Shot Rifle

190 4
On line pic of something you need....If you ever see one of these latch onto it ! I bought mine on GB years ago as a "Game Keepers" rifle. Nice checkering, very light, very accurate, nice all the way round, and they sell way too cheap sometimes on Collectors Auctions, I don't know why....It's FN ! Mine is like this but with sling swivels. You lay the round on the extractors and ram the round into the chamber, very simple, very effective. The bluing is still good on mine. Capable of rounds touching at 20 steps.

They look like neat little rifles. FN Herstal is the parent company of Browning and currently licenses and produces Winchesters through an agreement with Olin. These particular rifles are usually in stock at bargain prices on Simpson Ltd here in the US and folks with Browning or FN Trombones cannabilze them for common parts, such as the front and rear sights.

Simpson is new to me, thanks ! Their prices seem fair, great descriptions, somewhat less than bidding currently on GB. Interesting that they have the 1912's as well as the beloved browning 22's. Mine is nicer than most of what they have. I have been shooting LR in it with no problem but will switch to Longs;) the balance of these little long barreled rifles is terrific ! The trigger is very light which takes some getting used to, ideal for "off hand" shooting as one does for game. This is one rifle that will be handed down.

Regarding their prices, they have a shopping cart system, user accounts, and list their asking price. But in many cases they also say "Call to Purchase". I've found that means they are still willing to negotiate on that particular item YMMV.
