Attic Find
 
So, I found this old rifle not too long ago while helping my Grandmother clean out her attic. She hasn't been up there in years, and this was sitting in the back, covered in dust, next to an oooooold Sears and Roebuck 12 gauge (both were my grandfather's). I figured Italian of some kind maybe? I know its a 25-06. Looks almost like it could be a Carcano, but honestly... I have no clue. She let me take both of them home. (woot!)

Dad says I should just pitch it to the gunsmith and see what he'll give me in credit, but I'm kind of a history buff, and enjoy keeping things in the family. Problem is, I know next to nothing about restoring old rifles. But I'm willing to give it a go.

First thing's first... What the hell is it?

I dunno' what it is. But if it was your Grandfathers, I'm glad you're going to keep it. :)

Very nice find. Don't know what it is but it looks like it doesn't need a whole lot of cleaning up.

Nice find, Jynx. I would say it is a rifle...:p

Are there anyother markings on it? Can't really see what it says on the top flat above the numbering. I wish I could help you more, but I'm sure someone her can. Maybe C3shooter or that BillM guy who stops by from time to time.

Looks like a great project and if you don't want it, send it to me. :D

That is very nice and I do hope you decide to keep it in the family.:)

Jynx 07-08-2010 02:17 AM

Gee, thanks Skull :rolleyes:

There are, but I can't quite read them.

On the bolt:
KBGK
25-06

On the stock, it looks like it has "8G 2750" etched in, along with a "DP" (I think)

and I think it says "TRRNI" on the barrel.

Other than that, I can't make anything out.

Shi suggested I pull the bolt and look under it for more markings, which I did. Nothing. He says its a Terni.

I shot a PM out to c3shooter an jpatterson since I was told they were the men to talk to. Any more takers?

It looks to me like the 2506 on the bolt might just be serial numbers and not actually the chambering. http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...ites/shrug.gif

Not necessarily:

The 25-06, originally a wildcat cartridge, was picked up by Remington and added to their commercial line late in 1969. The wildcat version dates back to 1920, when it was introduced by A. O. Niedner. Remington has stuck to the original configuration of simply necking down the 30-06 case. The remington Model 700 series bolt action rifles were the first to be offered in this newly adopted caliber. At the present time Remington, Intraarms, Ruger, Savage, Winchester, Weatherby, Sako and almost every other manufacturer of bolt action rifles offer at least one version in 25-06. In addition, the Ruger single shot is available in this caliber. Since its commercial introduction, the 25-06 Remington has become a very popular number.
