Beautiful. That there is a "keeper". Is .32-20 WCF hard to come by these days?

Correction.

GM tells me 32-20 is all over the place, perhaps I haven't dug deep enough.  I won't be shooting this rifle much if at all anyhow.

I couldn't care less about that!

What a rich history that has. You are a very lucky man.
A real beauty.

Very Nice.

I got a Marlin 30-30 two years ago, and have not yet taken it out to the range. Nowhere near as nice as this Winnie.

This post has convinced me to get it to the range next week.

Thanks for positing
