The first one here is a Savage Model 4C. It was lost in the 50's by my grandfather, burried in a garden until my uncle dug it up in the 80's while planting chile peppers. The barrel end had packed dirt in the end and after only 4 swipes of a cleaning brush, the bore shined like new. The outside was pitted only minorly but the stock was trashed. We sanded it down and got it to decent shape. The stock is a 2x6 we sanded down for now untill I get a decent blank.
The next is a 1930's JC Higgins 103.228. I found it at a gun show this fall. I was amazed at how new the stock looked and how clean this thing was. I picked it up for $200 and soon found out why it looked so new. The rear iron sight was welded crooked from the factory so it doesnt shoot anywhere near target. I threw on a bushnell rimfire scope and its a tac driver now. I got it for my dad to pop squirrels with. My grandfather had a Marlin Glenfield Model 25 that has the exact same action and mags as this rifle so it was nice that dad could have a similar rifle as well.
and one more of the fun gun , haha.
