    Very nice condition pre'64 on the left...made sometime after 1954 I would say. Admirable.
    Put the keyboard down. Now kick it over here.

    57, and it will be all but retired now that I have the later model trapper, which shoots pretty good.

    Boxing days sales have been and gone, 30% off, so my first Winchester lever, M94 in 3030.
    Finally ran a box of rounds threw it, been cold -20 or more, bit fiddly to load with gloves and cold fingers.

    Nice, you’d be hard pressed to find a better bush gun. Is it one of the new Miroku made Winchesters?
    More meplat, more better.

    Very nice, never seen one of the new Winchester 94 made since they started up production before, I don't think anyones brought any into the country. I note that none of them have barrel bands now, which will probably help with accuracy in general.
    how long is the barrel on that?

    It's a carbine so 20", I am not very familiar with Winchester levers, but it sure carries nice, and balances in the had very well,
    I was hoping to find a takedown version, but no 3030 around,

    Carson, I am looking at a colt lightning or replica, you ever used one, ?

    cowboy action is starting mid year, up at my local gun club. Planning on giving it a go.

    This was my first centerfire rifle. (still have it)
    Miroku M-bolt in .243. It has a leupold vx1 2-7 which I am quite fond of. Very well made gun and good scope for the money (plus its light weight) , IMO

    Nope the accuracy wont be any better as they dont appear to be factory tapped for apertures now.

    There’s a stack of miroku mlr (I.e. blr’s) about too - they are often miroku manufacture. M bolt is an a bolt obviously - not quite sure why they were sold under both names or what the arrangement was.

    Possibly easier to sell a Browning in the USA than a Miroku ?

    Agree, but not sure where the opposite would apply - I guess miroku just wanted some profile somehwere. They make good stuff regardless. Browning have outsourced production since the dark ages of course, FN and miroku bing the obvious ones, but they’ve used smaller manufacturers as well - bettinsoli for one.
