Well as the title states, I just wanted to share as my wife seems
less and less willing to look at me when I tell her the same story
over again (which I know none of you guys have this problem)
(just kidding ladies).


I had saved up, so I broke down, and bought my first 1895!

A deluxe takedown A-checkered .33wcf with a 22" barrel.
traces of case coloring in the familar areas, and about
75-80% blueing left. Wasn't really looking for one, but
when it showed up at a local show last weekend along
with a hand full of 1893's and 94 or so, I was quite suprised.

The gun had an earlier reciever from 1904 and lacked the
lightweight bolt and rebated lever but had all the remaining
lightweight features as Brophy spoke of, hard rubber buttplate,
the unique barrel with small front sight ramp, half magazine.
and of course the deluxe with the nice burl walnut. Good
checkering, all wear and tear seemed about par for the course

After some himming and hawing the gentleman behind the
table and I came to an agreement and one made it to safe.

Wanted to thank Don, Dick, and Rick for answering a few questions
I had on the ole gal. Thanks again gentlemen.

Feels good to share. Honey...Honey...hey where'd she go? :)

Congratulations! Early 1895's are always a great find, and a deluxe takedown even better!
