Thanks for the compliments, have been fortunate enough to come across a few that have wood with some character to it....that 25/06 is a '77 vintage if i recall that came to me new in the box; seller had posted it at auction with some really dark pix that made it look pretty bland, and i was pleasantly surprised. wink

never had any issues with the 1.5-5x's or the 1-4x's in regards to positioning the front ring near the tube area of the Leupold objective lens.

Here is my 1A that I picked up in Germany a few years back. It has a custom Claw scope mount and an ugly butt pad... Some trigger work has been done to it as well, it has a trigger shoe. The scope is a Kahles Fixed 6 I don't get to shoot much here in Hawaii but I recently had it out at Koko Head Range and wow... It hits the bull from 50 yards to 100 yards w/MOA and I managed to "ring the gong" on the steel target out at 250yards. The wood is amazing.

On Freedumb1's lead - since we're bringing up ex'es, here's a former (with a tear rolling down my face) Ruger #1 RSI in 7x57. It belongs to someone else from the Campfire now. How's the old girl doing? You taking good care of her? smile

As tex n cal noted above, it's a Thompson Center TCR 87. This model pre-dates the much uglier Encore, but a fire at TC destroyed all the TCR production/parts. The rest is history.

I just scoped this plain Ruger .35 Whelen this Saturday. It's got a 1-4x20 Leupold on Ruger low rings. I sighted it in at 30y and verified 200y POI smile

My .30-40 (left) and .45-70 (right), guarding an original Hepburn (not mine) in the center:

The .45-70, left, and the .22-250 in my avatar, right:

The .45-70 has really good figure, on both sides. It also seems to shoot well, though I have to admit you better hold on with maximum loads smile
