Ran this by Bert before I dropped the 2,500$, which in my eyes, it’s worth twice that. Was able to land one of my favorites, first year production run 1886 in .45-70. Just loaded up some 380 and 405 gr BP loads, waiting to field test it.IMG_0645.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0644.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0649.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0650.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0651.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0646.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0647.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0652.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0653.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0657.jpegImage Enlarger

Wish I could go along, range trip sounds like fun. I think your estimate may be a bit low but I’m not the first to tell you that. Nice enough, honest 1886. With the right ammo I’m willing to bet it will shoot well. Nice score, congrats.

Glad you acquired this first-year rifle. I’ll look forward to a range report.
