Ha -ppy Birth-day to you!

I'm still occaisionally carrying a Swedish Model 94 manufactured in 1899. I use handloads with the pressures kept at moderate levels,cause I use it only in the swamps for close up shots.

my dad has two 22's from the 1800s, no bs. one is from 1846 (octagon bbl, lever action), and an old pull firing pin single shot 'bolt' from 1876. interesting guns. I have a rem model 12 from 1922 and a rem model 760 from about the same time period. the last two were my grand fathers.
