all very nice but I gotta say I think I like the Higgins best!

That old 592 looks to be in very good condition for it's age.

Yes Red for being what it is its actually quite accurate. The trigger is quite horrible. I just put one of my Less desirable scopes on it. Spruced it up quite nicely. The 5MM is in excellent shape but the finish is quite brittle and scratches easily. It will be getting some new skin soon when I figure out the best thing to put on it.

satin polyuerathane in a spray can looks nice and easy to use.

Good grief I totally forgot to add this one in. Winchester model 61 s-l-lr I dont use this one much but it is deadly accurate.

Look into Arrow Oil from Miracle Products International out of Wisconsin. Puts a beautiful low luster oil finish on the wood & is easy to touch up any scratches or dings you get later. Really seals the wood & brings out the figure/grain. Easy to use too!!

My wife said today after a buddy called and told me of another purchase that he made, "He sure has a lot of guns" I don't think she has totaled what I have yet :biggrincamo:

I have your Mossy's twin, from Westernfield. The first new gun ever bought for me, as a kid. It's quirky & different. I used to clean it with the old gun cleaning kit, from the wrong end, and wondered why it wasn't accurate. About 5 yrs. ago, I had the 24" barrel cut & crowned at 22". It is now MOA @ 100yrds. w/ the 40 gr. ammo. It always will be my favorite gun. Not the best, certainly ... but my favorite. The memories go a long way with that rifle.

Sweet! I dont shoot it much but looking forward to getting some of the new ammo for it. Cleaning from the wrong end is not that bad unless you are using a steel rod. it would take hundreds of cleanings with an aluminum rod to cause any wear on the steel of the barrel. I use to work with stainless sheet metal. It had a blue plastic film on it we used sharpened copper to cut that film off the stainless. never could make a scratch in it. I have cleaned some of my guns for years from THE WRONG end with no effect on accuracy. Chances aren the crown or something else was the cause of the accuracy problems. I am glad to hear that you are geting that kind of accuracy now. I am having trouble putting a scope on mine because of eye relief troubles but it a nice rifle and is pretty accurate. :biggrincamo:

I used an old WWII army cleaning kit. I'm pretty sure it was steel. It was kept in an old green, narrow sack, closed with a draw string. My dad wasn't around and I was only 12 or 13, thus clueless. Yeah, the eye relief on that shooter, is a stretch (literally)! You can put a shotgun scope on. That gives you a couple x-tra inches. I found a scope that works pretty well, but can't remember what it was, right now. If you want I can check it out for you.

Thanks Pecci I am looking to try and find some mounts that will let me bring the scope back about an inch and I will go from there. I hope it is enough. as I have to really crane my neck forward to get a good view through any scope I put on the darn thing.

Something like this might help. You'd have to find the right one, though.
