    Thought you might like to see an old rifle. The knob is finger tight , unscrew it and it takes down into 2 pieces . This one shoots but front sight is screwed up so its kind of a crap shoot lol


    The Marlin 1897 .22

    Very nice.

    I have something similar but it is a pump made by Winchester. Love the old Octagon barrels.

    Very nice Oli...keep them coming.

    The only lever gun I have is a Winchester 9422. Unfortunately it won't be an antique until I'm gone and my kid or grand kid has it.

    That is a sweet lever gun!! Great pic... My keepsake .22LR is a Winchester Model 90, also a takedown model.

    Thanks for sharing...

    Don't know much about this particular model, but being made by Anschutz I'd say it's probably a keeper...

    I'm sorry, I must not have read that right.

    You sure there isn't a zero or two missing in the post above?
