I love this rifle but I’ve got so many right now it just sits in the safe so down the road it goes. This rifle started life as a nib browning miroku(no tang safety) that was sent to Dennis Olson in MT who put a deluxe style Winchester red pad on it, checkered the stock, added a barrel band sling swivel and NECG banded front sight as well as a Skinner Express sight mounted on the bolt, a dovetail blank has been added where the rear sight was. All in I have $1500 in this project and that’s what I am asking for it shipped. I also have over 60 Rds of hornady 180gr factory ammo I’ll throw in the deal. I have a box but it’s not original as the box is marked 30-06.

Congrats to both of you. That’s a very nice rifle and the embellishments over stock really add to the tradition of the rifle. Well executed improvements.

I am digging this rifle.

Had it out with the 32-20 and the Sharps 45-70.

Cartridges: 1873, 1882 and 1892 (I think).

Rifles: 1874, 1892 and 1895.

Two of three were shooting cast.

Yup...luddite.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
