Here is my favorite gun..
Its my Hawken Rifle in .54 caliber.
Walnut half stock carved from a local tree that was hit by lightning....
And a 36 inch Orion barrel with a 1-72 twist.
The lock is by Davis.

This is the rifle that I shoot and carry the most.
It has accounted for winning many a rifle shooting match...
As well as keeping me fed.

Top is indeed a High Standard. 18-7 K1200 Riot Pump.

The bottom shotgun is a Savage/Stevens 520-30 from the 40's. A Flaming Bomb. (Rather interesting.) While researching it, (I thought I had a Military issued Riot Pump.) Turns out via various cartouches (sp?) That it was a true Trench gun that someone had removed the heat shield and the bayonet lug. ($800+ in parts IF you can find them.) Cut 1" off the barrel, added rifle sights, cut 1" off the buttstock and added the recoil pad. All extremely well done apparently by a gunsmith.

(But) WHO does that to a true Flaming Bomb Trenchgun. Turned a $2500-$3k Collectible to a nicely done but now maybe a $700 Riot Pump. Enough to make you cry. 😭

I believe I paid around $400 for it at auction.

Bottom photo is a modified Marlin Camp 9.

Those 520 series of shoguns are sweet , smooth shooters for sure.
Maybe the work was done , back when surplus WWII guns were far more common , as in the 1950's -1970's.
Perhaps someone wanted a shotgun for hunting big game on the cheap.

Andy, that Second Model Dragoon, (it is 2nd, right?), is that an original? Sure looks it. The pistol could almost be a "Factor's Pistol". That's nice.

Its a 2nd Generation Colt 1st Model Dragoon....I bought 2nd hand and it was badly "antiqued" by a previous owner.
So I re-worked the finish to a what I think is a more pleasing look...Luckily the bore was nicely maintained.

The bottom pistol is indeed my version of a Factor's Pistol.
The lock was originally flint , but I converted it to percussion....
The barrel is from an older abused rifle barrel that I salvaged....its in .54 caliber.
The maple stock was hand carved from a chunk of old tree that was cut down in my neighborhood....
I think the hammer may be old , as in antique...
The only item I bought new for the project is the trigger guard.

Shootbrownelk - it is a worked (see my above thread.) Savage/Stevens 520-30 Flaming Bomb Trenchgun from the 40's.

I've got about 14 different Shotguns just now, with the one I hope to receive Monday. It's an addiction.

Andy, if you think that 520-30 is smooth, you ought to handle that High Standard 18-7 K1200. By FAR my smoothest Pump. If you stand it upright, the action slides back on its own. (Seriously.) I was taken aback when I discovered that.

I have heard that , about those High Standard shotguns.
I would suggest that in the name of "gun science" , you send the High Standard out to me , so I can verily your findings... :D
