Thanks Bill,
The old Boy I got it from, is well into his 90’s, and has really become a good friend, just to go visit, and check on, and listen to old stories, while either Bonanza, or the Rifleman is currently playing re runs!Smile
I’ve truly been Blessed with the older Gentlemen that I have come to know over the years!
He still gets amazed at the Cell phone and the info that we can find on it!

Pls, by now mention was I intuiting the wood  was not original, in my opinion, absolutely original..Just making comment that the wood is def x or xx or maybe,as your stated xxx, wood. Great gun and I it were mine, I would shoot it. I have always shot all of my guns, even old 44rf guns I shot them…:)  

WPO,

No insults taken here! Your comments are well taken, and being a Forum, I think we better know that were putting ourselves out there for chance, if you will.

I do want to shoot it, and I did forget to mention, that my buddy, who I got the Rifle from, has a Ton of old Vintage, and even some more aftermarket Black Powder Ammo that he used to shoot. We just haven’t gotten around to it yet!Smile

Limestone,

That’s a nice model 86.  I like the 1963 letter addressed to Warren, Ohio which is not all that far from me.

Tony,

That would be a great rifle to hunt with.  We have been going up to our camp in Tionesta a lot this summer. We had quite the rainstorm this past Tuesday, and Hunter Run,  small stream that’s behind our place overflowed it’s banks.  Luckily we didn’t have any flood damage, and only had some debris, and a good size log in the yard to clean up.
