<< < (3/3)

Major 2:
Ok I'll play , Henry board , but OK I'll chime in....my MUTT  :)

Beside there is some Henry DNA in the Vetterli
The Swiss Vetterli rifles combined the American Winchester Model 1866's tubular magazine with a regular bolt.

Mine came to me as a dusty over oily closet queen in rimfire ...great bones and bore but had been in the same closet since the 1960's.

A through detail cleaning of wood & metal results were stunning, I then converted it to Center fire.

It shoots modified Lebel brass and  .429  300 grain bullet with 30 grains of 3FFF BP.

Major 2:
 The internals, Bore and rifling were pristine.

Aside from the bolt action, you can clearly see the Henry/Winchester influence with tube magazine , loading port  & cartridge lifter.  Royalties were paid to Winchester patent by Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft Waffen-Department (SIG)

Tuolumne Lawman:
