Nice chunk of purty lumber Rick. Really like the clean barrel & 20mm (fixed 4x?) scope. Nice snag.

The scope is an El Paso Weaver K3, fine crosshairs with dot. It shoots minute of squirrel-head at 50 yards.

It is tube fed through the butt - you load it through the slot on the side of the stock. You actually use the tube under the barrel to cock the action.

There is nothing better than shooting an old gun likes this in the pic. If only these old guns could tell hunting stories.

You know, I posted these pictures and a bit more of the story over at RimfireCentral.com, and all most people could say was about how bad it was that the rifle was not totally original, box-stock.

This rifle came to me from an ex-brother-in-law, and it was his "step-grandfather" who did all the work on this and a couple other rifles. (Remember the Savage 99 in .22 Hi-power I posted a while back with the beautiful wood?) The man obviously did great work, spent a whole lot of time on this and created a great-looking and functional rifle. All of his stock work was from chunks of wood he selected...not ordered from someone else already inletted, etc. I am happy with it, even if all this work reduced the value of the gun's collector status!
