Here's two of my all time favorite rifles.   My 1860 Henry in 44-40 made by Henry Repeating Arms.  And my 1874 Sharps Hartford in 45-70, made by C. Sharps Arms.   Both fun shooters!

Ha ha!   I've been accused of many things, but never being refined or good breeding :)

Winchester Miroku 1866

No polish on this one and in fact I like the mustard looking patina better.

I have always liked the lever action rifles of the old west. I have avoided the Henrys and 1866's as you can't find ammunition to shoot in them, I did finally find both original guns. I bought the 1866 SRC and it is a late model centerfire rifle and seems to be very scarce in a factory centerfire. The henry, I am still waiting on a price to see if I can get it too...









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