Winchester deluxe model 71 that I bought at the national trappers convention in Rochester MN spent my entire budget of 500$ on it but don’t regret it

Marlin model 1893 in 30/30 bought new by my grandfather in 1905 and carried by him from the area near Buffalo NY to Mn at the age of 15 when he left home to seek his fortune

Interested story about those 3 bolts in the stock



Your 99's appear to be a 99C (clip) and a 99G (checkered take down). I am not a 99 fan but I did just tuck a super clean 99G in 300 in the safe just because it was so clean and had never been drilled and tapped for a scope. If I can find a set of Stith mounts for it so I can scope it without drilling it I may even shoot it.



Good luck finding a Stith mount I have been searching for a few years as I have several 99s and only a few are tapped for a scope and while I don’t care about some I do have a couple I do care about and don’t want to drill


There was a guy a few years ago that was making copies of the Stith mount but not anymore sadly

Winchester 38-40 and 38-55. My dad owned the 38-40 went to my older brother shot my bear with it last fall. The 38-55 my grandpa owned was supposed to go to us but dad had a falling out with him and no gun. I still want one of each. Love those guns.

I own a Winchester .32 Win.Spl. since 1962 (new). Produced in 1959.

Also I have my grandfathers Savage 99 in 30-30. (Its well worn).

I would like to know when it was produced. Any help here.
