LOVE IT!!!

Seems in a way I own a bit of Stevens history! My stevens 67 E-Series is NOT a .22 but it is a STEVENS! And I love the Ad for the Model 85 and 87!

is a Ward's Western Field that was produced by Stevens for Montgomery Wards through the 30's and 40's. Friend I work with wife doesn't like guns and wanted him to get rid of it, so he told me I could have it!

I did have a Wards Hercules Model 10 but I gave it away to a friend. It was a junker so my buddy has it as a project. Will he fix it now I couldnt swear to it.

As for giving you the .22 I say thats as awesome as one day can get!

That's ok, glad to have it. I spent most of midday cussing the front that blew through. Not bad outside now though.
How's the beer business?

I am thinking on getting a custom Furniture made for my Marlin. Something in the sniper looks. I nicked named my marlin the squirrel Sniper rifle so I think furniture with a pistol grip and stock setup would make it look very nice.
