1952 Marlin 336 SC 30-30 that's seen a lot of woods time over the years. It still hunts as my father took a deer with it 2 years ago.
My great (x5)grandfather's original full stock percussion muzzleloader.
It was handed down through the family, and my dad had work done to get it in shooting condition. I had more extensive repairs made to get it in safe shooting condition. It was about two years in the process.
In 2015 I was able to hunt with it and harvest this buck.
Ithaca 22. S, L, LR. M-49.
That has to be an awesome feeling! 6 generations down. WOW. I'm afraid to shoot my grandfather's gun at this point.
I have my 4x grandfather's rifle also. It needed extensive work to make it safe to shoot. I had the barrel freshened by Butler Pennsylvania. I shot it in a nmlra Illinois territorial match several years ago.
It is now a .45

A little sweetie to shoot.
Dang it Farmer, I have a rifle that came down from the wife's side, but no pics. Not sure how many X's that is. I'll have to make some pics. It came into her family around 1846, not sure when it was made before that. Was traded for an Ox.
This was made in 1876. Pre-1960 enough?
What a stunner! Every detail is just right.
Could you post a full-length photo of that checkered '03 please?
