I visited the site the last couple of days anticipating seeing some new purchases from the Reno show but alas it appears nobody is ready to show their new booty. 🙁 I couldn’t make it this year after getting that “new to me” 1892. My funds were cut to close this year. I might try to regroup and make Vegas in Jan. I was there the last two years and enjoyed the show. I hope you guys are going to post some new stuff, it’s always interesting seeing what’s out there. 8)

I was up for 25 hours straight, 16 of that driving, but it was worth it. So many gun shows are all black plastic. That was the first show I've been to since the old days when Winchesters and Colts were the norm. Nice. Although Colts were pretty slim. Lot's of Winchesters I wanted to buy, but no money, so I just drooled on them. I did get some good education while there.

I did not buy anything for my collection, but I did help several people buy Winchesters for their collections.

The most interesting Winchester I had the pleasure of handling was a Model 1892 Take Down Rifle with a 32-inch half-octagon barrel, full length magazine (two mag rings), pistol grip, plain walnut, I-pattern checkered stocks, and Lyman sights.

I picked up a very minty Model '94 S.F.P.D. carbine, one of 80 that the S.F.P.D. bought in 1933 to replace the Colt .44-40 carbines in anticipation of the Longshoremen Strike. I'll try to post some pictures......

I found a nice 94/95 hybrid, model 70 in 358, 64 in 25-35 and 55 takedown in 30 wcf with a nice two digit serial number. I also met several forum members and saw, held and drooled over many neat rifles. Looking forward to next years show. Laugh Laugh

😯 Only four new rifles, seems like you were on a roll and should have went for a nice half dozen. Sounds like some good stuff.
