    What a great post! It will bring back a flood of additional memories too - not that it hasn't already. Keep us posted with a report.

    Bryan, we'll need a report too!

    Hmmm... I'll have to see if I can take a picture of my 1890 leaning against an Arizona cactus. We might be starting a theme here!

    Great write up and great looking rifle. I love the octagon barrel and pump. The thumb screw on the side of the receiver is for quick take down, right?

    I bought one at a flea market many years ago and discovered that it's a 22 short. It's engraved and looks like it was used in a shooting gallery. I've got a 1906 that looks like hell. My grandfather got it because some guy owed him 12 dollars back in the 1930s. He gave it to my dad and I got it when my Dad died. I personally put 10's of thousands of rounds through it when I was a kid. I use to buy 500 rounds and shoot it all up on the weekend.

    Correct.

    I have a Rossi 62 SA (take-down) that is identical to it, except for the awesomeness factor and caliber (its .22 LR).

    Awesome piece gasmitty. Gallery guns have a special place in my heart. Right next to Savage 99's.

    That Rossi was the first rifle I bought for my Son. He still has it.

    I learned to shoot with a Winchester 62A in 22or. Still have it, but it's not as nice as your 1890.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    My first 22 was a Winchester 74, and it cost $21.00.
