    Brass inner barrel. At least the one I have, only shoots shorts and can shoot primers out of shotgun shells at 30 yards. If it's the one your writing about.

    Of course it being so small and iron sights doubt I could be as accurate with it now. That being the user issues not the gun.

    My dad bought this H&R Sportsman single action to carry running his trap lines. Serial number indicates it was manufactured sometime between 1932 and 1934. The single actions are relatively rare, most of the Sportsman models are the 999 double action. Still in near mint condition, and gets a few hundred rounds run through it every year. I cherish it. 08 28 2019 HR 22.jpg

    I was given a shooting Hamilton a while back. I was told they came in seed corn bags for farmers years ago. The stock looks like its cut from a pine 1x6. Made in Portsmouth Mi. I think.

    My favorite is a Winchester model 67 semi auto, has a tubular magazine in the stock. My grandpa had one that my brother got after he passed. I learned to shoot with it so I found one at an auction and paid too much.
    I just picked up a Mossberg 152 that looked like a barn gun but it cleaned up real nice. Has a fold down front grip Anyone here happen to have one? I'd like to hear more about this rifle.

    I wish more of the old guns had a way to mount scopes. I am way more accurate with a scope.
