    It’s not just eBay, people go nuts at auctions. Went every month to one in Ohio. 90% of people there passed a Wally World getting there. When 22s were available you could make a few bucks buying 22ammo and putting it in auction. Now we have people...

    I may have the mag release spring from old woodsman. It’s not a coil spring, it may be out of a model to old for your gun.

    I made two mistakes with my 1895. The first was shaving the stock and forend down like an original. That removed a lot of surface area from the butt plate. Second when Ohio got rifle deer season I took off the reciever sight I’ve shot for 40 years...

    I also just got a 0/U, a old model Savage 24 in 22/410. Not fancy but useful for about anything that aggravates you in these parts.

    Without the pump vs single, the market is full of $100-$200 pump shotguns. I get them on trades all the time. My favorite beater shotgun was a Savage 220 12g single shot. Came from local PD when I bought all their confiscated weapons. Was 16”,...

    The early 24s with side select and soldered barrels were the best of the series. Later guns with separated barrels have bad reps. The barrels would shoot so far off you might not be close enough to rifle with shotgun pattern to be practical. Old...

    I had one and didnít think much of it. Wasnít the shotgun scope, a 3x9. Junk in my book. It is hard to find low power scopes of good quality at reasonable price. The market has shifted to recreational shooters. That makes hunting scopes a specialty...

    I have this to say about pistol caliber carbines. Unless you have no choice they are the least useful of long guns. They can be very useful 100yds and under. Shooting game at 200yds with one is not the same as shooting from a bench at known...
