1885's are always nice. I've had several. I now have two. I will never be without at least one.


God bless Mr. Ackley......

I'm fond of my 1885 low wall 22 Hornet. Not as nice as that Turnbull, but still a fine rifle, very accurate and classy.

I love my "Winchester" Lowall .22 WRM made by Miroku. Have had many 1885 originals and two replicas: Uberti, and C. Sharps.

For my money the best single shot action ever made (although I never met a single shot I didn't want, including the humble .22 bolt actions, even a Stevens Model 15 with its black paint "ebony" forend tip!).

Thank you. One like it would be a great walk around chuck rifle in NY. These Browning low walls are very accurate and well made. Trigger a little heavy, but crisp at about 4 #.

They are indeed nice. I picked up one in 22 Hornet in September at the Syracuse gun show. Nice wood, but nothing like yours! Too bad over-the-counter guns don't come with wood like this anymore.

Probably a good thing they don't. Would be hard to walk away from any rifle with nice wood. I get a little stupid when I see one. crazy grin

I got mine to 3lbs but still tempted to send it to Lee Shaver for his sear work and spring.

I am considering sending mine to Tyler Gun Works to have the reiever color case hardened and then engine turn the lower portion of the breech block. Mine doesn't have quite as nice a grade of wood as Hikerbums beauty but it is pretty good and I think it will really pop with an oil and alkanet finish. A poor mans Turnbull project. I will have a fair amount of time into it but the expense will be reasonable. I will see about Nitre bluing the small parts as well but hold off on the rust blue at least for now..

Both mine are very nice as well. I suspect it's Claro, but whatever it is, it's pretty. The Traditional Hunter .44 is oil-finished (I think), the Hornet something shiny.

Wonderful rifles. The High Walls are a bit heavy for me for field carry, but the little ones are just right.

Just got my 1885 High Wall in 308 on Friday. Warne base and rings came yesterday, so got the scope mounted last night. To the range today. The 1885 is one of the rifles I've always wanted. Now, I'm looking at what I might want in another one. But, have to move some things out first. I've got a Ruger No 1 in 308, but it just doesn't give me the same feeling as the 1885. The wood on mine is nothing to brag on.

IMHO the ultimate ones are the RMEF 300 H&H and 1890-1990 WY commemoratives. The WY rifle is odd as it has a slow twist of about 1 in 13". Hopeless for big game until Barnes introduced the 80 gr bullet. With the 30" bbl and Superperformance almost 4000 fps with accuracy is possible.

Owned one B78 and still own two 1885 LWs. Also have owned several Rugers, including a current .243 1V and a very early 4-digit 7mm RM AH. Aside from the old one, my Brownings all looked nicer and felt smoother. My late brother's 1976 .270 1B was also very nice and an excellent shooter to boot. Sadly, I didn't buy that one when he sold it.

Like to see them bring out more LWs for light Big Game rounds.
