Winchester 1885 25-35 Takedown
« on: September 20, 2022, 05:04:43 AM »
I found this 1885 in an auction site and had to get it. It has a bunch of stuff going for it, but I am a fan of 25-35.

All the features letter and the gun is in great shape. I hope to be shooting deer or antelope this fall with it. 
















I never considered myself a failure...I started out at the bottom and happen to like it here!

Thanks for another visit to the Shrapnel Museum of Historical Objects Put to Use! It's like a cross between a museum and a petting zoo: beautiful museum pieces that come out to play. Thanks!

Sure looks to be in great shape!  I'm not familiar with 25-35, can you get brass or make it from something else?

It is a .30-30 parent case.
