Just going thru the safe doing a bit of Spring cleaning, and was wondering what weird or strange things are hiding in your safe ? For me one of them would be this Quackenbush safety rifle. Made sometime between the late 1890's and the 1920's I bought the gun as a project, the nickle plated barrel is original to the gun. the barrel on it now is a replacement barrel that I relined, it was my first relining attempt. I did not want to ruin the original barrel, learning how to reline one. The gun came with a hole in it for the front hand guard, but it was missing. I looked at photos and made the front hand guard to match. not many had a hand guard, so most frames do not have a hole for mounting one. Spare frame shown does not have hole in it for one.
