Reload'n And Levergun'n

My love of handloading my own cartridges, casting my own bullets, and shooting fine pistols and leverguns. Range reports, Ballistics, Reviews, Pictures, and everything related.

This ole girl is a real beauty and was shipped out on a cold February day in 1902.
This Winchester 1886 Extra Light takedown model features the 22" round barrel, 1/2 mag, plain pistol grip and shotgun butt. Another thing is the excellent picture itself. Kirk takes outstanding photographs and we sure appreciate him sharing this one.

Thanks Kirk!
