Winchester Model 52C "Sporter"

Not a real Sporter, but a Target my dad had "Durham" (probably of Grand Rapids MI or Denver CO) convert to a Sporter back in the late 1960s.

I should have kept this one, but sold it for a friend. Remington Rolling block 7mm mauser 1901. (Stock professionally refinished)

Well, if sportsdad60 can post non-bolt action rifles in the bolt-action thread, then so can I! :rockout:

These are my Springfield Trapdoor rifles, all in caliber .45-70:

Image

From top to bottom:

1) Marked "Model 1873," made in 1890.
2) Marked "Model 1884," made in 1892. This one has the Buffington rear sight, and is interesting because it also has the ramrod bayonet. See the "cleaning rod" under the barrel that has what looks like a Phillips screwdriver bit on the end? Well, that extends and locks in place to become a bayonet. It doesn't look terribly practical to me, but . . . .
3) Marked "Model 1884," made in 1882 or 1883 if you go by serial number, and marked 1889 on the stock. :whatthe:

Now let's get back to some proper bolt-action rifles. These are my Model 1898 Krag rifles:

Image

Top: Made in 1903.
Bottom: Made in 1899, includes the bayonet.

Both are in really nice condition, and these are a real pleasure to shoot. The .30-40 Krag round is relatively mild so it doesn't beat you up. thumbsup
