Winter carry weather has arrived.
My fav is the S&W m19 2-1/2."
I have a later production model with impeccable timing and I have my eye on an earlier recessed and pinned version.
Gentleman over in the Colt forum, who also hangs out here, reminded me that I haven't posted two of my newest acquisitions, a Winchester 1892 Trapper with a 15-inch barrel in 44-40 circa 1911 and a Smith and Wesson Double action Frontier, probably factory engraved (waiting on letter from S&W), with eagle carved mother of pearl grips manufactured around 1900 shown with some other period accoutrements that I have used before.
Thanks for posting those!
Nothing better on a cold morning than a hot coffee with a hot rifle. Blasting off my Henry 30-30 BWL at 100 yards.
1919 vintage Remington Model 51 380 Auto. An elegant weapon from a more civilized time. Very fine choice for a Sunday and holiday carry gun. Star Wars quote seemed appropriate, given the movie premieres today.

One of my favorites, as long as you retain your equanimity during reassembly. Few pistols are as thin or point so well, though it's not a tank, like the Colts.
I've got an R51. Have had both Models 12 and 14. Pedersen disassembly isn't bad once you get in Mr. Pedersen's head. Pedersen =/= Browning.

Recently bought this holster (on sale) from At The Front. My father bought the P08 sometime in the 1950’s. It’s nothing special. Just a shooter grade pistol with “1917” stamped on the breach. But it somehow managed to evade being stamped full of swastikas or other nazi emblems. I cannot imagine how, but I’m eternally grateful.
Nice match up, my Luger is a 1915. Yours would be correct with either the black or brown holsters from then. If you haven't tried the MecGar magazines, they work great and Wolff still makes spring kits for them. Mine runs well on the WWB FMJ stuff in the bulk packs.
I have my Grandad's Model 14 in .32 Remington. It was his hunting rifle in Pa. There is a company that will make shells for the caliber as it is no longer available.
There is a fella in Pa. that has a bazillion on the Remington pump rifles. I had the pleasure of meeting him. He took me into his basement gun room for a tour. Seriously I think he had like 30 or so of them.
Sadly until now I've lately had nothing very interesting to report BUT this peaked my interest today:
It's a new Uberti - that they're calling a Single Shot British Style Stalking Rifle in .303"
I'm somewhat tempted even with the ugly 1885 action.

I'm very tempted!! What actually might kill it for me is the picatinny/weaver rail. I wish they had not done that.
Me as well as I do like the Browning action compared to say a Sharps. And by the look of the screws in the weaver base I'd bet it will come off. ???? After a 2nd look it would seem the entire 1/4 rib and express sight is one piece and screwed on. Pull it and plug the holes. Then put a tang peep on it
I agree on the rail's aesthetic detracting from the classic looks and was glad to see the screws so that it could be removed. "An elegant weapon for a more civilized time"
Bingo! Uberti already guessed at what version some will want.
Uberti sez :
"For those not wishing to use this rifle with a scope, a plain quarter rib, on which the adjustable V-sight may be mounted, is available as an accessory. Item #360637"
I wonder if the rail couldn't milled off and then a proper express sight be mounted on the rib.
No need to mill it off as it will come off with the screws. Uberti already has a direct replacement for the weaver rail version.
This is a pair of Colt BP frames I am just putting back together.
Oh my word, where is the Drool button?
