Texas Ranger Frank Hamer had a model 8 in 35 Remington when he went looking for Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow and found it did a pretty good job of punching holes in the Ford Coupe as well as the couple themselves.
Yes,Yes OH Hell yes I love it,thanks for the pictures!

Default S & W Model 1917

This is one of the Brazilian contract M1917s of 1937. Its nice and tight and still shoots very well. The finish does have some wear, dings and scraps but to be honest the pictures make it look a lot worse than it is.

Default Savage Model 1899

I have posted pictures of this one before when it belonged to a friend and we were trying to figure out the value. It has been refinished so that hurt the collectors value. We were able to work out a deal where some money changed hands along with some "stuff" I no longer needed so now it belongs to me. It fits this thread so I'll post some pictures again. It was made in 1909 and is chambered for 25-35 Win.

Default Remington Model 11

This is another firearm I picked up on the Worlds Longest Yard Sale. I bought it and an Enfield in a package deal I think in Kentucky but not sure. The Remington Model 11 was the first auto-loading shotgun made in America. It is very much like the Browning Auto 5 and the Savage Model 720. After WW2 Remington made the Model 11 and the Browning Auto 5 along side each other until FN could resume production in 1952. This one is a 16 GA so it makes it worth a little less but its the only 16 GA I have ever owned so all is good.

Default Remington Model 12A

Here is another one I picked up on the Worlds Longest Yard Sale. Yep I have picked up quite a few guns on that yard sale. I think I brought home seven one year. I can't figure out what year it was made. Between 1921 and 1972 Remington was supposed to be using a barrel code to indicate month and year of manufacture. The month was supposed to be indicated by the code: B-L-A-C-K-P-O-W-D-E-R-X with B=Jan. L=Feb and so on. Cute. The year indicated by letters starting with M=1921 N=1922 and so on sometime skipping letters and some time using double letters such as MM=1943 and sometimes repeating letters such as A=1932 & 1954. Mine has a L and a F on the left side of the barrel near the receiver with the L above the barrel index mark and the F below. That would seem to mean Feb. 1937 but the model 12 was discontinued in 1936 with some 832,000 made. The serial # on mine is 209,xxx. Its just all so confusing. lol. Also it has a Lyman aperture sight on the tang.

Default Winchester Model 12

I'll include both of these in this post because the only difference is the first is 12 GA and the second is 20 GA.

I had one of those but was forced to sell it, wish I had it back, made a great car gun when I lived in Florida.

Default M1 Garand

Ok this is the last one in my collection that will fit in this thread that I haven't already posted lately in another thread. This Garand was I believe manufactured in July 1943. Of course the bayonet is a reproduction.
