Do these count?

It's a single shot, 32 wcf, with 16.5 gr 3fg and 100 cast bullet. The target is the eye.

Sorry about the photo, what I tried has worked in another forum. The photo was of a fox squirrel and a Stevens Model 44 rifle.

Next time, uncheck the using html box below the window where you are typing in your message. Should work then. Now, if I could just figure out how to shrink these photos w/o loosing a ton of resolution.

Bushytail season is about to start in earnest around here. Not that they haven't been legal for months, but deer hunting has preoccupied me. That's done as of last night, so squirrels are in trouble.

This year, I have a "new" #3 Ballard original to hunt them with. It's just about an ideal squirrel rifle, so I'll be targeting eyeballs too.

Brent, that's a dandy looking low wall there...did Doug ever get it checkered for you? I have a similar project on-going, but mine is a flatside, and slated to be a .25-20 WCF.

Yes, Doug did a beautiful job of checkering it, and Classic Guns colored the action for me. It is now complete and shoots in the mid 240s at 200 yds from the bench.

It's a hell of a rifle - if I do say so myself. About 15 people have had a hand in making it come together. My role was limited to General Contractor, metal polisher, bluer and wood finisher - and oh yeah, Cash Cow. Everything else was done by someone else. Now I'm building a .38-55 Borchardt in much the same fashion.

I really have to get a better set of pictures together for this rifle.

The tree rats around here , what I am used to seeing are mostly small greys..To me that rifle looks mighty small or that squirrel is the size of a small dog. :) .....I built 5 singleshot Stevens rifles last year , 3 are Stevens Marksmans and 2 are Stevens Favorites..All were scratch built except I didnt make the barrels......But though I would like to shoot a few squirrels --that looks like huge fun - I am now at age where I wont pull trigger on a singleshot if I cant be entirely certain of a clean kill...and I dont shoot well enough , I feel bit better if second quick shot is available..So presently I am scratchbuilding a couple pump .22 rifles , copies of Mossberg Mod K circa 1930ish..
.
But I am off on a tangent..I will say I enjoyed seeing your picture of an old Stevens in a hunting scene...Thumbs up.
