    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.

    lol wow thought there would be more cool or different guns hiding in everyone's safe.
    guess everyone traded there guns for toilet paper, and use the safe to store it all.

    yes it is a .22 but I only shoot it with .22 subsonic ammo.
    the whole swinging breach block seems very week.
    But I must say at 10 yards (length of basement) while shooting subsonics it is a lot of fun,and accurate.

    So I take it as though you have never shot it?
    Do you plan on ever shooting it?
    I could not resist the temptation to shoot such a beautiful gun.

    Oh yes sir I plan to shoot it. It was passed down from my father and I would love to shoot it, even just once with him.. But it has a broken hammer spring. That's why I need a model number to help locate the part..
