  1. Large-Bore/Small-Bore Rifle/Shotgun
    Hi all, I have inherited my dad’s favorite hunting rifle, a 1948 Winchester 30-30. I will be picking it up soon and would like to buy a soft case for it. Can anyone tell me how long this rifle is and what type of case would fit well?

    Just bought a new Winchester 1885 Low Wall Rifle in 22 caliber. This, of course, is not a custom rifle and not as expensive as a custom rifle. Want to get the maximum accuracy from the rifle. So the question is, "What steps can I take to ensure that I am getting the maximum accuracy...

    I was looking through my spent brass casings from the range and I came across the Winchester ammo that had the NATO stamp and WMA stamp on it. I did not know what this was so I researched. I saw on one forum that to reload this brass, I need to swage the primer pocket. I’m not sure what this...

    Just got a Winchester model 70 XTR Featherweight chambered in .257 Roberts AI. The spacer in the magazine box pretty much limits the OAL to SAAMI specs, creating a big jump to the lands with higher BC bullets. If I wanted to have the rifle feed a longer OAL, could I just replace the magazine...

    Hello fellow enthusiasts! I inherited the rifle shown in the photos below. It seems to be in fully working order, the action works and the barrel is clear. There's only one marking on it, "1492" stamped on the bottom of the action. Any help in identifying it would be greatly appreciated! Perhaps...

    This is another of dad's rifles that obviously got a good amount of use, although it appears to be in overall good condition. It has a Bushnell Sportview scope, which @Old Guns already indicated was a low-end model. Dad's inventory notes include: "20" Barrel Tube Feed" "3to6 Power Weaver V22...

    This is the first post of a recently inherited collection for which I'm trying to determine resale value. This rifle is by far the most interesting to me personally, as it is one of the few pieces I don't recall ever seeing from my father's collection. It appears to be some type of...

    I just got a Winchester Model 1890 Gallery Rifle and a Winchester Model 12 Shotgun (30 inch barrel full choke) as a gift from my father. I don't have many opportunities to go shooting so I'm going to be getting snap caps for the Model 12. I would love to find snap caps and blanks that work...

    Got into serious collecting about 9 years ago and I focus on old Winchesters + WWI and WWII pistols and rifles from all the major players and some minor ones.
