Stevens Model 987, .22 LR. Dad and I used to go to the town dump in Hubert NC on Saturdays, and shoot rats with it. D@mn I miss those days. I passed it on to my daughter on her 13th birthday.

My first rifle I ever shot belonged to my Grandpa. His father bought it for him when he was 12 years old 100 years ago! And now it is mine and in excellent condition for it's age. A little finish wear but mechanically it is 100%. It is mine now and I try to shoot a few rounds through it each year just in honor of Grandpa. He was responsible for the appreciation I have for shooting, hunting and fishing. Unfortunately he has been gone now 51 years God Bless Him! The importance is not that we do great things but what we leave behind. I only hope that my children, grandchildren and now my great grandson can say the same of me!
It is a Winchester 1890 Hex Barrel Pump in 22 Cal. Short. There was no such a thing as a 22 Long or Long Rifle in that day!

Uh...the .22 long came out in 1871. The .22 long rifle came out in 1887. So yea, they were there in that day.

The Win 1890 was available in more than just the .22 short. .22lr was not available in the 1890 till 1917 or 1919 tho.

Very nice rifle.

A .22 long rifle I believe. My dad's. Started at about age 6. Well my first was a bb gun lol. But my second was my favorite for many years which was a 6 mm with a scope with which I took many woodchucks and coyotes. I think it only had a 3-9 scope but man I got lethal with it.

First gun I ever remember shooting was my dad's 30-06, but my first gun was a cricket 22 short. I shot it when I was younger and my family lost interest in shooting until I took interest again.

bnthntr,

Thank you for the information! I never had taken any time to do some research on it. What Grandpa probably was referring to was it was not available as you stated in this model for 22 LR. I did do a little research today on it and found out from what I found they only made 15,000 of the model I have. But I was not sure if all had hex barrels? And I was amazing to find that the "Master" John Browning had designed the rifle for Winchester! nchunt Thank you for the compliment! It is one of my prized possesions along with his Fox Sterlingworth 20 Gauge Double Barrel in full and full wich he always hunted with and I did as well.
