She is one of my favorites. A Parker Hale re-worked .22LR SMLE trainer. Thing shoots lights out w/ good ole’ Remington Thunderbolt.
Yesterday was a good day. Went to the outdoor range w/ my ‘03 then in the evening went to the indoor range w/ her and my son. He just turned 18 and bought his first gun on his own. Got a Ruger 10/22. Not a bad choice by him.
Sweet! You don’t see those everyday! Thanks for posting.

I doubt it. However, her “bigger” sisters may have! Very nice collectible you have.
Here is my oldest rifle, made in 1904 and re-barreled and re-finished by a previous owner in 357 Magnum. BTW, I believe that Winchester did the work and the Winchester stamped barrel is good enough for me to shoot sub 1 inch groups at 100 yards.
I've stopped counting.

Old girls? Look at all those young whippersnappers, born after the turn of the century!

Nice!!!! With the Arshin marked rear sight and all. I have an Old Russian Empire 1891 Mosin Nagant that is in original and decent shape but, it is a young one made in ‘15. So much better, in my opinion, compared to the much more common and plain Jane 91/30’s and such.
Love the old levers, have you considered wrapping the lever? I have two marlins that I put leather wraps on one 1894 and one 1895. Make a noticeable difference in the experience and speed and comfort.
