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.

    1. Done! And Happy New Year to you!

  2. Very nice, have a good time shooting it, and Happy New Year to you!

  3. Yep; what they've just said. Enjoy, and have a great time!

  4. At least it's not worn out like my little Stevens... LOL

  5. A most excellent-looking rifle. And Happy New Year, sir! Dogs send their regards.
