Stopped on my way to work this morning to look at some scrap metal that a neighbor has they need to get rid of. When I got there she mentioned she has a few rifles and some reloading equipment that needs to go as well.
Unfortunately my camera has a dead battery, so you will have to wait until tomorrow for pictures, but here are the descriptions.
1) .45/70 Model 1886 lever action. Behind the trigger it has stamped "OCT 14, 1884" above "JAN 20, 1885" with a serial # 1061XX
It says 45.70 on the heavy octagonal barrel but nowhere does it say Winchester (probably re-barreled?)
It has a Lyman 66a rear peep sight and a Marble Sheard front bead. Double triggers (very light- I don't have a snap cap so I am just felling it with my thumb on the hammer) Condition is remarkably good, but well worn. Stocks are well worn but not damaged.
2) Remington Matchmaster model 513-T with a Redfield extension receiver rear sight and an odd looking (to me) Redfield shrouded front sight with a changeable aperature. This one is in poor condition. Lots of rust spots and the stock is pretty beat up.
3) A Winchester Model 77 (missing the magazine at this point- might find one in the rest of the stuff) this is in pretty darned good condition and does not appear to have been fired much, but I will have to clean it to be able to tell for sure (lots of dust and cat hair stuck in all of the oil).
Also got a bunch of reloading gear, including a Lyman Ideal no. 310 hand reloading set with dies for the 45/70, and another complete set for 30/06.
Lyman bullet molds for 45/70, 30/06 and .45 (stuff here for an M1911- no gun though).
There are three powder measures, one of which is unused- all three are Lyman Ideal #55s.
More dies and molds. Too many to list right now.
Did I mention that all of this cost me $200? I'll be taking that much in scrap metal off of her hands as well. I offered that it was not a fair deal for her but she insisted that is what she wants to do.
