    Spent the morning shooting an oldie...

    Today I got to disassemble, clean, reassemble and shoot a Winder Musket.

    It is the Winchester 1885 low wall in .22 short. It is US marked with the flaming bomb. It is now 100 years old and shoots great.

    It is from the third and final modification ordered by the military but the wood on it is excellent. No bumps or bruises just clean straight wood. The blue is mildly faded but just enough to where you know it was used but very much loved their whole time being here.

    History is fun to shoot and this one cleaned up great.

    Nothing like pulling the trigger of history. I'm all for people getting those century old guns out shooting again.

    I picked up an 1885 Low-Wall a coupe of years back.
    Mine is not stock, but rather has been modfied to shoot benchrest I think.

    It wears a very heavy stock, and the .22short barrel had been replaced with a Winchester model 52 barrel, making mine a .22lr.
    It is one of my favorite .22's to shoot.

    They shoot well and are a very steady platform. I love them but this one is my brothers...
