    Had an old Stevens 325 Bolt action 30-30 when I was a kid. Dropped quite a few deer with her back in the day. I been wantin to get a model 200 in 223 for coyotes. The 200 is a great shootin gun and won't cost ya an arm and a leg.

    Yeah Randy, I've got Peepaw's Savage 74, a direct copy of the Stevens falling block. It's got ugly wood on it, but it's a nice little shooter. Perfect for a long lazy session of "I betcha you can't hit that." Makes a box of .22's linger around for more than a few minutes!

    Thanks Rider,I like the little rolling block look.
    And Troy thats cool brotherman.Cant remember what model it was but a friend of mine in school had a bolt savage in 22hornet.
    Liked that little rifle alot.We would shoot crows after school with it.His dad owned a sportin goods store.
    So we had like a never ending supply of ammo
    Had a chance to trade for that rifle and let it get away.wished I hadnt,,

    Gunrunner they are great little rifles. I shoot several originals and I am amazed at how accurate they are. I have one with a so so bore and it still shoots great!

    Great little shooter, my first rifle when I left Brooklyn in the late 50's as a kid for New York farm country, WISH I still had it for the grandkids.

    I've got a 1915 that was grandad's/dad's barn gun. Barrel was gone, no cleaning. Numrich had a replacement barrel that needed fitting, the extractor was the big thing there. They're cute little singleshots, prices are such you could probably get a couple of Marlin semiautos for what most guys want for a Favorite. Accuracy is only as good as the barrel. Originals tend to have gone through the blackpowder era and are usually in tough shape. They were cheap guns at the time and decades behind a barn door doesn't help barrel condition.
