hehehe.......

but ah! i have secretly 'tuned' the maganet for a time/spacial displacement transferance anomoly. as soon as the said gun is within range of the 'magnet', it places it into a warp of space, creating a 'wormhole' effect to deposit it into my gunsafe.........i just wish mm93 would quit storeing the 'magnet' next to his breadbox.....i can't eat any more of this dang wheat bread his wife buys!!! :shock:

Did that 1886 Winchester in .40-82 show up at your place yet, Kaintuck? :shock: I passed on it at $800, but turned up the power, so it should have gone to Tennessee with no problems! It was a decent enough gun, with good wood, but some knucklehead had reblued it years ago, and decided the receiver needed bluing too! I'd guess from looking at it, it was a nice gun before they wrecked it! Bore was super nice, and it would have been a nice shooter, but not much money left in it at the price of $800.
I did score a couple great buys, on a smaller scale! Got 7 boxes of the old Imperial brand .38-55, and one box of Dominion, for $5 each! Unfortunately all but two are jacketed soft points. But I'll shoot them in one of my smokeless barreled 1893's, and then reload with cast.
Also picked up a very early Mossberg scope, with Edwards 10x adapter! A very rare and nice adapter, on a great old scope! These old Edwards adapters were only made a short time in the early 1950's, and this is the first one I've been able to find! The Mossberg scope is about 14" long, and with the adapter, the whole scope is over 25" long! It will look great on an old single shot rifle!

Hey Marlinman93,
After looking at those great looking rifles you and your bud (J) had setup. Are you guys sure that (1) of those 81's weren't mine. I was thinking that I had one someplace and can't find it!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe you could point me in the direction of where it is? Really nice looking collection of Savage&Marlins.
