That is just BEAUTIFUL. You must feel as flash as a rat with a gold tooth.

Deadeye,

Congratulations. Is that a Lyman Great Plains? What caliber is it. Your right that is the present of a life time, even more important is the time put into it.

Very nice Late Plains style rifle. What caliber is it? Some one did a fine job on the German Silver inlays.

How nice ! The craftmanship on both rifle and the storage box, quite a gift from they who love and respect you !

I can't do photos but my eldest Son brought me for christmas a Buffalo Bill Commemorative Winchester 94, with octagon barrel, never fired and in brand new condition. And I shall leave it in the unfired, absolute new looking condition so long as I ahall live.

It's mostly a .54 caliber Lyman Great Plains kit gun. Apparently the barrel is not. I thought it was, but after talking to my uncle he said he put a barrel with a 1 in 64" twist to make it a little more accurate with patched round balls. He also made and set the silver inlays. Whatever he did, it sure works. I took it to the range and shot the pictured group off a rest at fifty yards with a 90 grain charge of pyrodex. I forgot my spotting scope and just held the same point of aim over the three shots. I didn't even know for sure if I hit the target, until I walked out to take a look. I think this rifle is going to cause a deer to have a very, very, bad day this fall. I plan to stretch it out to 100 yards and feed her some real FFg powder my next range day. My uncle got a heartfelt hand written letter and the target in the picture as thanks. He'll also get one very old bottle of booze next I see him.
