Looky what my grandma's father made for her!
So, After my evening at the range HERE: http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...pics-vids.html
I went back to my grandma's house because she wanted to show me something. She pulled out a long box from the back of her closet and I got excited! I opened it to reveal a absolutely beautiful Remington rifle.
She told me that her father, who is long since buried, used to order Remingtons "straight stock from the magazines!" as she put it. (Funny, We don't really order anything from magazines anymore!) He would then remove the rifle from the stock and take his own piece of raw wood and carve a stock to fit it. Then he would finish out the wood and sell them and give them to family members. He made this one specifically for my grandma, with a shorter butt stock because she is short and has shorter arms.
She explained that she thought it was a .410 shotgun but had never really looked at it and had never even fired it.
I examined it and it is in fact a Remington 600, 6mm bolt action. It looked like it would hold 3-4 rounds in an internal magazine loaded through the open action.
This particular one, as you may have noticed, is made of some sort of Tigerwood. I am unsure of exactly what, but it is beautiful all the same. Not to mention finely crafted!
She said if her son does not want it (She thinks he has a few of his own that her dad made for him) that I can have it in a few years. I am undecided if I want to fire it. I told her regardless of whether we fired it, it was in desperate need of some love and oil. So I am going to do that next time I am over there.
