I have my GGrandfather's lever action Winchester with a braised tang where a horse fell with him and broke the stock.  He braised it back together, made a stock and used it for a bunch more years, has old cloth electrical tape wrapped around the fix.

that's cool.

 

this gun also has a braised tang rear peep.  it must have been the thing back then.

 

i'd really love to take a nice mule deer with this gun, it would just be awesome.  

 

i got a couple of scabbards with it, one of them with the old family brand stamped on it.

Sweet rifle. Which maker stamp is on it? I had a Winchester 1917 sporterized and improved to .300 H&H. Rifle was a thumper, can't believe I let it go. I didn't even mind the $2-3 per round but ammo availability was lacking.

He says it's a .30-06, not an 8mm.

Like Lee said, need a pic of the opposite side of breech, barrel.

Nice bits of family history. Very cool.

I have a box in my closet with a couple pistols grandpa brought home from germany in wwII. No long guns though, grandma made him get rid of those so he hid the pistols.

Internet forums are a great place to discuss your method of hunting, but not such a great place to criticize someone else's.

My brother inherited a winchester 1886 45-90 a few years ago from our grandfather. I believe my great grandfather bought it new and handed it down to our grandfather who is 90 years old now. Pretty spectacular rifle and in great shape

Why can't we get pics of these treasures? Hearing about them without seeing them is about as frustrating as an evening at the titty bar.
