Just picked up two more in the last few weeks, a Browning BL-22 Grade II made in 1976, doesn't appear to have been fired, for $350.

And a JM Marlin Cowboy Limited .45 Colt, made in 2000, for $750.
It had been fired very little, the guy said it hasn't left his safe since 2008.

As I need a peep with a small aperture to see the front sight clearly anymore, I put Williams sights on both of them.
The .45 Cowboy will be a same-cartridge companion to this Uberti .45:

And my 2015 model 1895 .45/70:

Don't be afraid to check out new Marlins, their quality issues are behind them.
This "Remlin" is as smooth, well fitted, and accurate as any of the JM Marlins I've owned.
The polishing and bluing on the new guns are even better than the old ones.
The only issue I have with current Marlins, is the edges of the flats on the octagon barrels are rounded off, they must have a gorilla doing the buffing.

Ran into this Winchester 1894 Nickel Steel Octagon Barreled .30 WCF at a LGS about a year ago. It was mfg. in 1908. Poor bluing job caused a unnatural plum patina. Stocks had many nicks. The receiver and front stock cover looked almost new though. My gun smithy said the barrel was good for shooting, after he took it all apart and cleaned/oiled it. Took it out and fired three rounds. Decent accuracy, but the Crescent Butt Plate was hard on my shoulder and left a bruise. Receiver had been drilled/tapped for a scope mount, but I found some similar screws to fill in. Since it has already been worked on, not really a collector's item, except for show. I plan on replacing the semi-buckhorn rear sight (too wide for me) with a square notch and doing some work on the stocks. It is and will be a shooting rifle!

I really enjoy my 444P Outfitter, but wanted to scratch another itch. I just had a custom Ruger OMBH Bisley in .45 Colt completed by Andy Horvath. It was just screaming for a caliber matched mate. I decided on a 24" Marlin 1894 Cowboy in .45 Colt and after some searching, found one locally. It belonged to a CAS shooter and had been slicked over and given a full action job. All it needed was a thorough cleaning. Great gun and will be my deer gun next season.

Found this thread so gotta get the lever-action tribe's group photo up.

Hoping to add a good vintage Marlin Model 39 by year end. That's the goal if other unanticipated expenses don't continue to derail it.

Top to bottom:

Winchester Model 1873 .38-40 from 1900
Winchester Model 1886 .45-90 from 1887
Winchester Model 1892 SRC .32-20 from 1896
Winchester Model 94 Carbine .32 Winchester Special from 1941
Winchester Model 1895 .405 from 1904
Savage Model 99 .300 Savage from 1955



All are regularly used for range work, plinking, hiking, hunting whenever the whim strikes. Deer have been taken with all except the Winchester '92 .32-20. Haven't ventured to try it on deer yet. Oh, and the Winchester '73, but a deer was taken with a .38-40 '73 previously owned.

I only have one, bought very recently, a plain Jane 1980 Winchester 94 trapper (16 inch) in 30-30.





It’s a blast though

Well, a group photo. On the right is a Winchester 1895. This is not a real valuable one as it is a late model rifle made in Japan. One might note the safety on the stock.



In the middle is an Interarms Mauser bolt action. On the left a Ruger No.1 International.

All these are in 30-06 by the way.

My last two rifle purchases have been lever guns.

A Browning (Miroku) model 53 I bought last summer, 32-20 is a cool round to play with. And more recently a BLR model 81 (Also Miroku) in .308. Both are definitely keepers.

I'd love to have my Ruger #1 International back. Mine was in .30-06. I love a Mannlicher stock. I managed to get one of the newer distributor commissioned Ruger 10/22 full stocks in Walnut. Still in the safe and I still haven't shot it. But I ain't getting rid of it.

I'd also miss and would love to have my Browning BLR 81 in .223 Rem. I had both in Alaska. That little BLR 81 was a sweet handling and shooting rifle.

Nice levers both, Dakota and USMM.

Nice collection as well. I think photobucket was mainly to blame.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
