Sarge,
This is my 1895 45-70. It was made in 1899 I believe. I had just fitted new wood to it in these pictures. It has the forearm you want and it sure feels nice in the hands. Why they went to that big log up front, I'll never understand.

Beautiful Rifle Brent. Nice backdrop and fencepost too!

I think it would be a tough decision to choose between the backdrop and the rifle if he said take one of your choice home with you. Both need to be fed :)

Kurt, one of them if definitely a lot cheaper to buy AND feed. And that one don't have much resale value either, but I love them both.

There is a special place for them in me. We had a Palomino on the farm I was raised on. She had a long skinny neck and slightly sway backed, but man could she cut the barrels. You better have the old fashion high cantle with a high swell and wrap your arm around the horn :lol:

Merry Christmas Guys.......Kurt
