Nothing like a single shot .45 AIRGUN! Can't beat the accuracy with a stick!
Took this Black Bellied Barbados Corsican Ram with a 250 grain pellet shot from my .45 caliber single shot airgun. The effectiveness was quite dramatic.

Wish I had a big bore air gun, but here's my old Fienwerkbau 124 (.177 cal) with 2.5X Leupold Compact scope.

I bought it (new) over 26 years ago. It has accounted for many hundreds of pest birds during that time plus dozens of rabbits and squirrels, and one pheasant. The seal finally went bad and I recently had it replaced along with a higher velocity spring. It shoots H&N match pellets at 822 fps and groups in about 0.3-inch at 20 yards. During the past month it's got 9 squirrels off my bird feeder (at 11 yards) with 9 shots.

Here are some of mine.

The ******* 1866/1841 Trapdoor,







My reworked Marlin Ballard .22 WCF





One of my Pedersoli rolling blocks, this one is a 45-70. I plan to restock it this winter in the style of J.P.Gemmer




I have another Pedersoli rolling block but that is being rebarreled to 50-70. I have not decided how to stock that one yet.

A couple other cartridge guns and a bunch of muzzle loading single shots are also around but were too shy to sit for the camera.

Happy New Year all.

Here are my current No. 1's. The top one is a #1 AH in .25-06 with Circassian walnut. The next one down is a .375 H&H built in 1971 or '72. The next one is a .416 Rigby (Elmer Keith prairie dog gun). And the bottom one is a .45-70, which I believe also has a Circassian buttstock. The .375 & .416 aren't too bad to shoot, even with full-house loads, BUT that .45-70 is absolutely brutal and will screw you into the ground with about anything over 1900 fps.













I've also got a couple of old Stevens single shots stashed in the back of the safe that are upcoming restoration projects.

Here's one of the latest additions to my single shot rifle collection. It's a #4 three barrel cased set, engraved by Dale Woody. One 26" matted top round barrel in .22 magnum, one 24" round in .22LR, and one 22" octagon in .22 short. A Malcolm style repro scope is set up to fit each barrel.







And finally, after refinishing the scope and mounts:

Marlinman,

As you can below I like Martini Cadets. The top rifle in the group pic is my wildcat I call the 20 Raven, sorta a rimmed & blown VarTarg. The middle rifle is a 17 Ackley Bee and bottom is a 218 Bee. The last pic is my 35/30-30 with octagon barrel w/tang sight and detachable scope mount

dondford, I only think it's fair to say.......I hate you :( ;D
Beautiful rifles, mate.
Wish they were mine.
I still have 2 Martini actions, a large frame Enfield and a Cadet, ready for projects but as usual the almighty dollar is the barrier.
One day......one day...... :-\ ;)
