New Year Old Rifle

In fact my first one. Winchester Model 290 acquired with S&H green stamps! Mailed directly to the house. Here with it's original rug marked "SEARS". 

I'm running it tomorrow!

  1. You are fortunate to have kept it this long. Well do I remember the S&H green stamps. The blue too. But so many of my possessions whether rifles or real estate or muscle cars...sigh...have fallen by the way because of unanticipated trials in life. So I ask of you, shoot a few rounds for me if that seems fair of me to ask. The past year I have been reacquiring the firearms of my past. Its not the same but it brings satisfaction. Happy new year.
