A few years back, I was looking at old .22 rifles at a local Gun&Pawn. Picked one off the shelf, and wondered at the thick barrel. A Stevens. Hmmm....what's with the bead front sight? And the huge loading port...? It dawned on me it was a .410 singleshot boltie! I bought it, and refinished it to match my old Stevens Model 15 "Boy's Rifle" that an uncle gave me when I was a kid, some fortysome years ago. They make a great pair! Then, having developed an interest in bolt shotguns, I soon bought an old J.C.Higgins 20 gauge, and a Kessler 16 gauge. The J.C. Higgins has a funky sheet metal safety that gets bent and it's hair trigger makes it unsafe for field use. You look at it hard it goes off! The Kessler has a slightly bent barrel - so I installed a TC Contender rear and front ramp sight, and it's a good shooter. The box magazine system is a bit cranky. I like the odd and unusual. I have a lot of singleshot rifles too. I'm just funny that way. I like a gun with a certain quaint charm. I like odd calibers too - I love my singleshot .22 Hornet and reload for it. It ain't the greatest round, or the most 'efficient', but like a bolt action shotgun, it has a certain charm.
