I got an e-mail from my kid brother who is a jeweler and coin dealer. He said that he had some firearms that came through and he wondered if I wanted them. The first two aren't too special: A Lyman Great Plains Rifle (muzzle loader) in 54 caliber. The next is a Marlin single shot bolt action boys rifle in .22 LR.
The next three are worth the price of admission. The first if a Model 1897 Winchester 12 ga pump shotgun. The second, a Model 14 Remington pump rifle in 32 Remington. The last (sweet mercy) is a 1895 Winchester lever action in 30-40 Krag. Or "30 US Army" as it was once known. The price is more than reasonable and I'll be shipping them back to Montana next month.
