Next up are my FN Browning Trombone and its sister, the Remington Model 12.

Still learning the history but both are similar in design and are pump/slide action .22 cal takedown rifles. I cannot get a date range on the Browning but it looks pre 1957 as it does not have a grooved receiver has the rounded tang behind the trigger and metal butt plate.

The Remington looks to be a November 1927 build date.

I will have to check out the take down feature on these for a more thorough cleaning and inspection.

I ripped down the Trombone and Model 14. Both are similar but different and equally interesting. I just included pictures of the FNB.

The next are nothing fancy but some BSA Supersport 5's. They are quite a solid build. They are said to be great shooters but were non permanently converted to single shot with a feed ramp. Mags are apparently hard to find as BSA has been out of the rimfire game for a while. I'll be checking with some local resources regardless.

This one is a February 1965, Remington Nylon 66. While the poor lighting does not do it justice, I think its the Apache brown model. Its quite an interesting build with its heavy use of plastics and butt mounted tube mag. Although, I must say, its relatively easy to tear down and clean.

So the last of my FN Browning's. Both are SA 22 take down rifles. They are both grades ahead of what I posted in the summer. Damn near immaculate. Other than the recoil spring, they are easy to field strip and clean.

The higher grade appears to be a 1962. The other I cannot tell as the serial number does not jive with whats posted on the Browning website. Its post 1956 as thats apparently when they began serial numbers.

Made some time this evening to play with some of the collection.

Up first is a Deutsche Werkes Model 1. Its in great shape but at one point had a minor crack in the butt stock repaired and the medallion painted. Its pai ted but its there. One of the weirdest actions I've seen to date. Its bizarre but I can't wait to shoot it.

Then up is a 1963 proof Walther KKJ target. It has Anschutz diopter sights, adjustable trigger position and weight. There is some sort of brass Parker Hale brass storage system mounted under the pistol grip. Appears to house various front sights.

Thought I already posted but I have another 1963 proof Walther KK variant. Very heavy target barrel, Anschutz diopter sights and heavy bench rest stock. Its got the foregrip rail system as well. Will post pics but not sure which variant it is. KKM, KK whatever or a UIT Special. Regardless, another fine German rifle. I have shot it and its slick.

For me, this next entry touches upon TWO Addictive Past Times ...in ONE Post:

Firearms and Science Fiction

...
and for many of us who grew up watching Truly "CLASSIC" Science Fiction back in the 1950s -1960s, this entry may Answer a Question we've all pondered ever since we first saw THIS Image appear in the first few opening seconds of the Famous B&W 1951 SCIFI Classic:

"The Thing From Another World"
HOWARDWHAWKSLOGO.jpg


Say Howard... What's with the Double-Cross Winchester .30-30 Lever Action Rifle LOGO?

Well...it turns out that "The Man" who is often credited as being THE Director of TTFAW, was none other than Howard Hawks, the Producer himself, even though the Screen Credits were given by him to his Old Friend (...and his reliable Film Editor) Christian Nyby. But the final answer to this Mystery is that when written out in full, Howard's Moniker reads like THIS:

Howard Winchester Hawks

Hawks only made Two Movies under the strangely out of place Winchester Pictures Corp. LOGO before symbolically "Hanging it up over his Fireplace".

Want to Watch it ... again? Visit THIS Link:

The Internet Archive has the Original LONG B&W Version:


...and a COLORIZED Edited for Children Version (Alcohol Game Scene Deleted) for TCM:

So... The Monster is a "Vegetable" ...? Well HERE is something that will stop WATERMELONS... so ...IT Just Might WORK!

Shades of Stanley Kubrick's endlessly boring and obtuse (but lavishly filmed in Color for the first time ever in cinema using Natural Candle Light) ... Beautiful Movie called "Barry Lyndon", with Ryan O'Neil as the Intrepid,, Doomed Young Barry Lyndon:

As the Man stated... The Demo Cartridge he was using was 'un-sized' and that would also mean it was not trimmed for length either... :>)

THIS is perhaps even more interesting to us all... The United States has chartered what is known as "The Civilian Marksmanship Program" to support a Domestic Capability of Firearms Instruction, Gun Safety and Competition while also being able to sell Aging Military Surplus Weapons and Ammunition.

Even though this purchase originated in order to save me around $200.00 for the purchase of the required MICSIG OEM Carry Case for the protection and carry of a VERY Expensive Android Tablet-Oscilloscope with its Ancillary Equipment, the fact that I could get something that Looks and Behaves in an almost Identical Fashion ...For around $70.00 ... that would also suit Firearms Owners, prompted me to Post this information about it HERE and finish the MICSIG Oscilloscope Un-Boxing and Demo over on the proper thread later on.

Let's look at the "CASE" I'm making for WHY these "HARD" Facts are worth mentioning HERE:

(1) Very Rugged and Durable Weather-Proof Case.
(2) EZ-2-Arrange Internal Sizeable Foam Blocks.
(3) Solid, One Step Locking Tabs and STABLE Support Pads.
(4) ROOMY enough for Large Hand Guns and Magazine(s) Storage.
(5) LOCKING PORTS FOR EXTERNAL CORNER PADLOCKS.
(6) Designed to ...Keep Curious Kids from getting to YOUR GUNS.
(7) Meets the "Two Action" Rule for Legal Transport across many State Borders.
(8) Would require a Court Order or Search Warrant to legally open (Post Traffic Stop).
(9) Will Protect Cameras, Electronics, Weapons, Delicate Ceramics, etc.
(10) AN AWESOME LOW PRICE FOR THE COMING XMAS HOLIDAYS!

Following up on Post #1,100 ...My Grandson, is truly 'A Chip Off The Old Blocks' just like his Dad and Yours Truly... and by THAT I mean... The Kid has got Muscles...in his POOP! And since he is getting Older and STRONG enough now... and perhaps curious enough now... to want to start looking around the house for his Father's Guns, in addition to the Locking Cabinet Gun Case, I thought a nice Christmas Present to last him a Life Time would be the Practical Safety and Utility of THIS EYLAR Extra Large, Locking TSA Approved Gun Case:

Merry Christmas, Boys...
