Thnx Guys. I honestly don’t remember if I’ve heard of that round and if I did

Probably not old enough, no.

Some of us here read the early reviews in Guns and Ammo when it first came out in 1899. The gun writers panned it at first, but by 1902 it had gained a good reputation for squirrels and red stag. That's when I got my first of many.

"potato kaster" is a definite element for loony status. 303 is a requirement of Canucks. You can't be Canadian without a 303.

I'm confused. Are there no more rifles for sale because Loggah bought them all, or is that done with mirrors. shocked

I looked with great diligence at your collection and saw at least one vacancy. It looks like this:

Dan,

Now you have me lusting for something like that--and unfortunately, I know somebody who has a few and is starting to sell off some of his collection....

Here's one of mine acquired a few months ago, a "second Allin conversion" .50-70 trapdoor, a Model 1866 where the breechblock is stamped 1866, so was "first-year production." It has been beat up some outside (not unexpected for a 150+ year-old military rifle), but the bore is pretty shiny. It shoots more than OK for an open-sighted rifle driven by a semi-geezer. Have it on the buffalo background because some historians believe .50-70 trapdoors might have accounted for more 19th-century bison than any of the famous commercial rifles. In fact, I might just do another buffalo ranch-hunt with it.

Digital Dan, I have a Remington Nylon 66 in .22 short. Lots of fun but I forget why I even bought it about 1974. Getting old I guess. Be Well, Rustyzipper.

Got's me a pre-64 Mod. 70 Featherweight 30-06 and a Husky 1640 Lite 30-06. I could easily of stopped there and killed any thing in Alaska and most of the world with it. Got most of the others with a couple more thrown in for luck. Don't need a walking around heavy barreled varmint rifle, except for the two legged varmints Alaska does not have a problem with varmints.

That 6.5 Creedmoor is fun to me. Gots me a big 24" stainless CTR with a big FFP mil scope and everyone shoots it good. It is a fun range gun. Got it's little brother in a T3X Superlite. If I'm under 300 yards it will kill any moose in Alaska. Got a custom Mod. 70 Win. 338 that shoots little groups with any Barnes X bullet I have fed it. Got me a Mod. 94 Big Bore .356 and one in .44 mag. and a customized Marlin 1895 in 45-70.

Every good Alaskan has a 30-06 and usually a little bigger bolt gun and many have a 45-70 and a .44 mag hand gun. AR's, who don't have one besides the Brits and any country that still clings to their disarm the people mentality. Don't come crying to America when you realize you should of kept your guns knuckle heads.

The .22 short was the Creedmoor of it's day, maybe 100-120 years ago. I kinda like shootin' the first cartridge invented here in America. Pigs hate it though...

Gotta guess your 66 is worth some jingle if in good shape.

For me the end game is a waffenfabrik mauser oberndorf 9.3x62 fitted with a oigee luxor 3x scope from Berlin. Both being from the 1920's.
These were the rifles that pushed a steady flow of gunsmiths from the United States into Germany to learn the fine gun making trade.

The original dangerous game bolt action.

Generally bored handling almost every bolt action in existance, this is the original by which all were a rip-off of.

Felt a tinge of excitement. Then had to by a dmn $187 dollar John Speed Mauser book, just to figure how serious of a find I had in my possession.

Loggah, very nice. How did you happen upon that? How does that German glass shoot? In all my reading of Keith, o connor and Whelen, nobody really mentioned these originals in any detail. It's a bad boy rifle, the beginning. You can wade and sift through a million different rip-offs and many texts written by American legends about American and English bolt rifles. Every time, the path will lead to the origins of that rifle right there.

If you got that thing to Africa to the right buyer, it would pay for three or four vacations. But.....id just keep it.

Ive only shot it a few times and its right on at 50 yds. the scope is a 3 power with a pointed post,cant rember the name,or pronounce it.With this round i never understood why we needed 35 whelen? my other early mauser was originally a 9.3 x57 and someone re-chambered it to 9.3 x 62 it also shoots very well.
