I have a bunch of old rifles I plan to hunt with, someday. But the oldest
I I have hunted with is a Remington 725 in 270 win. Very nice rifle and nice condition
I need to win the lottery so I can pay for enough hunts to use all the rifles I have planned to use

These two were taken last week with a 1987 Remington Classic in 338 win mag.

1943 Remington 1903A3 sporterized sometime in the mid sixties. No scope. Lyman peep. Still an ‘06 and shoots 200 partitions very well.

It's obviously not, but "bolt action model 94" is what immediately popped into my head. Interested to learn about this one.

I had a 1910 vintage '92 .38-40 Winchester, but didn't hunt with it. I finally sold it, as I wasn't using it.

That's what a rifle is supposed to look like.

Roy do believe that is a Remington Keene bolt gun in 45-2.1" but I suppose it could be chambered for something else..mb

for me it'd be a pair of Winchester .303 brits both made in 1915-16. One's a p-14, the other a 1895. they were out this weekend during gun deer season.

Thanks.

It's been a ongoing project with lots of turns and twists, including a number of scope and ring options.

Here a link to the rather contorted details... https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbt...50649/re-358-win-pre-64-fwt#Post16650649

Nothing too old. My Browning B78 in 6mm AI is the oldest, but the exact date of manufacture is ??? as the serial number does not follow the documented pattern. The guess based on how other Browning guns were numbered at the time is 1973, but that's just a guess.

There's not too many older cartridges I have much interest in, or at least most of them need re-working. I shoot a .50-110, but it's fast twisted and the Browning action was made in the 90s some time.

This Winchester 1895 from about 1914 in 35 Winchester. I got a doe with it last year. It will get another chance later this week. So far this year I haven't been able to arrange a meeting between it and a deer.

I recently acquired one very similar in 303Br and hope to arrange a similar meeting between it and a Vancouver Island Blacktail

If it's not too much trouble post a pic of your 725. I'm a model 70 guy but I do like remington 725s.

The oldest rifle that I have hunted with is probably a sporterized 1896 Krag that I used to have.

My 1895 Wins range in dates from 1905 to 1920. I have taken deer, elk, and nilgai with most of them.
