1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

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.

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

LC, hasn't been around much, I don't think. So I don't think those requests will be answered anytime soon.

Notice the graceful design, every line smooth and the gun no heavier built than necessary.
That's something most modern manufacturers could apply to their massive modern actions and stocks.
I bet that action is smooth as a baby's bottom.
That's a beautiful piece of work and a real treasure.  Very nice rifle and very well cared for all these years.
Thanks for giving us a look at it.
I'd shoot a few rounds just to hear it speak.
