Great gun

Keep it honor of your grandpa's memory.
Makes me remember the sad comment from Vaquero yesterday about missing out on inheriting his grandpa's rifle.

amen to that ecaman..

I had the same thoughts about vaq's sad deal last night.. thinking hamps kids are gona love this piece, just as hamp does now.. and hamp, why don't ya shoot that gun brother.. thanks to those who are into cowboy reloads you can buy 38-40 cowboy loads that are perfect for old iron.. Yours being mfg in 1910 it was designed for smokless powder im sure.. Least thats the rule of thumb for S&W and Colt (if after 1900 smokless) but still nice to shoot the "downloaded" loads, and more fun for the kids.

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I choose not to shoot it because it is an antique, besides I have plenty of other guns to shoot, why wear out an original?

I am seriously considering buying a Henry "golden boy" replica or an 1892 replica for shooting.

My two boys like guns (18 and 13) but my daughter (10) not so much, however when I am gone the rifle will still be in the family.

Model 1892

Ya' know, Every time I look at that gun I think of John Wayne (my grandpa died long before I was born, I never met him), I grew up watching westerns with the 1892 as the primary rifle of choice. But as we all know the west was already settled by 1892 and the real "gun that settled the west" was the model 1873.

Beautiful piece, take some close ups for us and re post would be nice! I used to have a couple different lever actions myself. Nothing like that though. A Marlin 30-30 and a Rossi in 38/357
