This weekends gunshow coughed up another nice .22 autoloader to add the the conglomeration, and an unusual one at that. This little carbine is a Herter's Model "Perfect" (wasn't everything they advertised ) Style G-1...
I've never seen one before nor have I been able to find any info in the limited time I've had to search, but the action of this gun is the same as the "gill guns", the Savage Model 6, the Springfield 87, or the High Standard A1041/Sears 25, but without the vents. The gun is in excellent shape with a nicely figured walnut stock. It wears a 19 inch barrel with a shark fin front blade and a simple square notch rear.
Sure has some nice woodwork on it!
It may not be "perfect" but it sure is pretty!
Nice ... real nice Roe. How do you keep coming up with all these goodies?
Pretty wood! I never saw a rifle like that before.
May she serve you well.
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Roe has some amazingly beautiful and unique firearms for sure. And his pictures of them are always awesome.

A firearm should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.

Just for nostalgia sake cause it says Herter's on it, and because I wish I never would have sold my High Standars "Sport King". I traded off my model 60 to get it years ago. Was a good trade too! That High Standard could shoot! Pretty Rifle, cool too! CL
Pray hard...shoot straight.
