It has to be a .22, looks like it might be a Winchester. It is not a standard bolt action, maybe a t-bolt browning. :cool:

Almost looks like a shooting gallery or a training rifle from the '20s or '30s.

Looks like a Winchester Model 58...Dates from the late 20's to mid to late 30's (or something like that).

It does, but there is a feature that distinguishes it from that model. The timeline is about right for it too.

Model 1902? Wood seems too light, as most 1902's I have seen are very dark walnut and the trigger guard is pretty fancy...I also remember 1904's had a schnabel style forestock, but were similar.

But you didn't show it in the picture! :umm:

Lines on the stock may be wrong, but it's been a while since I messed with older stuff like that. I just remember they had an english style stock like that.


EDITED TO ADD:

Ok, I just did a google, and I think I'm right. Let me know...put me out of my misery! The noggin is hurting after actually using it to remember something past yesterday.

bgoldhunter, You are more right than anythone else.
The gun is a Winchester Model 99 .22 rimfire. 75,433 model 99 rifles were manufactured from 1904 to 1923
There is little difference between the model 99, and the 1902 besides the fact that it is fired with a thumb trigger. That's right, look closer. The gun is whole. Winchester claimed that the thumb style trigger did not cause the shooter to throw the gun off target as can happen when a conventional trigger is pulled incorrectly.

Bring on the next gun!

Ok here goes..guess just the make and model. There are some clues in the engraving and lines of the stock. My first hint...it's not a shotgun.

Not a very good hint, huh?

KC, for the most part, you are correct!

Sorry I couldn't get on last night and annouce it.

It is a H&H Royal Double, the first two were of a .375 H&H and the last was of a .500/.465 H&H Nitro.

Royal Doubles sell for way more than 26 grand, new or used. The cheapest new one is $131,855 (MSRP)...I just got one for my next safari :hammering:


Next Picture, please!
