Tell me about what's attached to the rest of the handgun barrel; looks interesting.

I had one of those. It was deadly accurate. I gave it to a friend in Colorado who guided us on an elk/mule deer hunt. He put us up in his house while he stayed at his mom's house. He wouldn't take any money from us. As we were heading out to the airport, I handed the rifle for him hold on to it for a minute while I loaded my luggage in the truck. He tried to hand it back, but I told him that there wasn't any room for it, and to hang onto it for me.
I thought that he was going to cry. He was acting like I had given him a thousand dollars. Gifting a gun has that effect on a man. He still has it and told me that he has killed a lot of critters with it. That was 30 years ago.

You and your dad are both lucky men.
Make sure that he takes the time to use it.
I bought my dad a side by side 410 for his 62nd birthday.
We only got to go bunny hunting once with it before his health wouldn't allow it anymore.
Don't let that happen to you.


I'm just a soul whose intentions are good. O Lord please don't let me be misunderstood.

You are a fine young man. Your dad should be proud of his son. Can I adopt you?

You can tell the year by the serial # Look for a "JM" proof stamp on the barrel, often on left side just in front of action. Those tend to be sought out. Suprisinly cheap rifle when new, that bring good $$ now. Rimfire Central has a section just for these models.


you're only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

The JMs are gold. Great find and I think your dad will love it. I have 3 JMs, all lever guns and they are going nowhere until I go in the ground. From what I have seen the Henry's just don't compare.
