Hello Mr. Rat,Took her out of her sock and took her out today.
Had never fired it using the sights, I took the mount and scope off and put it on another rifle.
I also tried a rifle load, they had some thump... the sights were dead on!!!
Really want to take her out hunting... but I don't really like taking her outside. She was unfired when I got her, but she didn't make it home that way...
So it was made in 1894? or model 1894? That would appear to be a big slug with not much powder. What was it used for do you know? I would seem to be under powered for a rifle. Man hunter maybe?Its a pistil caliber carbine. A model 1894.
Its got a big hole in the barrel but It is still a pistol round.
Really the 30-30 is a better deer rifle.
