Got The 1886 Deluxe Out

Post by Shrapnel »

I bought a nice deluxe 1886 rifle last winter and needed to shoot a deer with it. I had a doe tag, so I decided to get it with the '86. She is a real trophy and the gun looks good, back in the field...

isn't it against the law, yet, to have a rifle be that gorgeous? i mean, there are laws against everything else.

if i had something that looked that great i would haul it out into the woods every chance i got

way to go with the gun and the meat

curious about your load for the venison

I agree, I would love to have it in a 50, but I am not interested in a 45-90. The 45-70 is still the classic chambering. I do have an even more rare 50. It is a Colt lightning that was a special order gun, lettered and sent to Bombay as a cat gun. It is still out there killing stuff too..

A few years back when I was actively collecting mainly Marlin levers I always thought it would be really cool to have a WIN 1876 in 50-95 a WIN 1886 in 50-100/500-110 and a Colt in 50-95 . Never got any of the three !

I just read an article on the Bullard. Dang shame no one makes a reproduction. Seems like a really awesome design
