    Beautiful old shotgun, Kev18. I enjoyed your video as well.

    My latest is a German Schuetzen Martini single shot target rifle in 8.15x46R made by "H. Speeman in Neuss" ... we're taking it to the range to test fire it tomorrow!















    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Reverend AL, you sure do find a lot of super nice classic rifles there. You are a lucky guy.

    Rev, I like all Martini rifles, but I am a lefty and probably couldn't shoot your new rifle.
    I have never seen one with the under lever that latches the cocking lever.
    Very Nice !

    I haven't been brave enough to try to take it apart yet, but I assume that the lever under the forend unlatches the barrel assembly for removal while the lever behind the trigger guard unlocks the trigger group and breech block. I've sent a message to a fellow who has a similar rifle on the same take down action asking for directions on how to take it apart properly without doing any damage to anything.

    Yes, I've been very lucky and have managed to put together a fairly varied collection of single shot rifles in some interesting calibres. There are a few more yet to come from a gentleman who is currently down-sizing his single shot collection. As my old hunting partner and best friend used to say: "Lots is good, more is better, and too much is ALMOST enough ..."

    Took it out today for the first time with some ammo supplied by the previous owner and shot it at 100 yards. All of the low shots and fliers off to the right of the main group are all my fault because they were "Oh ****!" shots. This rifle has the lightest set triggers of any rifle I've every had and I think it will be the first time that I'll have ever had to adjust set triggers so the front trigger is heavier than when I received it rather than lighter!

    Did it again yesterday. I bought my seventh Maynard on an online auction. A model 1882 in .25-20 Single Shot this time. I'll post some photos when it arrives and I have it in hand.

    It never ends ...

    Stopped in at C. Sharps this last week and ended up leaving with a receipt for the deposit on an 1885 Highwall 45-70. The folks there were great. Got a quick tour of the facilities and the best part was being able to pick out the wood for the build. Six to Eight month build time but it will be worth the wait.

    Picked up my first contender over the weekend. It's a 1990 model so it's a year younger than me. I'm thinking 41 mag and 218 bee would be fun.

    And I thought "keeping up with the Jones's " was a state of mind. Nice way to upgrade the neighborhood.
