New-to-me rifle
« on: June 10, 2019, 12:36:22 PM »
When I came home from the hospital I had an email telling me I had won this rifle at the auction the previous Saturday. I won't be able to get my sweaty hands on it for probably 3 weeks as it is a 2 hour drive to pick it up. So, the only photos I have are auction photos.

Sorry, I posted this in the wrong place. Will someone please move to the breechloader rifle section?

You did yourself proud with that one, it's beautiful.

That's a good looking High Wall Mazo.
