    I don't care what caliber. I don't care what action. Wood and blue and preferably pre 1960 are the only requirement. I'm all eyes

    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.

    Not particularly old, but decidedly old-school

    How about pre 1860?

    My great (x5)grandfather's original full stock percussion muzzleloader. 20151205_075212.jpg

    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. 20151213_165300.jpg

    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

    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?

    Mr. Loosenock's Rem 722 in .257 Rbts really rings my bell as I consider the M-722 one of the all time great American rifles. Here is a M-722 B Grade in .222 Rem. with old school Lyman Super-Targetspot. It was a deadly combination back in the 1950's and still is IMG_0255 (5).jpg IMG_0254 (4).jpg
