    Way to hot to hit the range so went gun shopping.

    I was looking for a 308 but was talking to a friend i normally go gun buying with and that bastard talked me in to a 45/70 that a different friend had for sale at a good price.
    New toy - Henry 45/70 brass receiver octagon barrel and Large-loop lever, gun was not used still had the box for it $500 and along with 60 rounds of ammo.
    I am not looking forward to feeding this rifle at $1.75 a round its as bad as my 300 win mag.

    Also picked up a junk Stephens bolt action 22 as a project gun to see if i can make it a usable gun again, it is in really bad shape but it was free.

    Yep back on gun restriction for a while so even if i do find the 308 at a great price i cant get it.

    Gun restriction

    That Henry is a nice rifle and would make a great bush gun. The bullets would not deflect easily and you could drop pretty much anything up to and including an elephant with that. Great price on it too.............I can see why you didn't pass it up.

    Make sure you take some before photo's of the .22 so we can see what it looked like before you started working on it.

    Soaking the 22 in oil right now.
    The rust appears to be only on the outside of the gun the action and rifling look fine and i found a few cracks in the stock.
    It will most likely just end up repairing and paint it due to no value, i am thinking orange and black

    The 45/70 is going to get a scope on it tomorrow i found a QCB bug buster scope in my closet, cheap as hell but i really do not need much scope on a 100 to 200 yard gun just something i can see.
    Bifocals suck for iron sights so i have to use a low power scope with thick cross hairs or i may pick up a fixed power 3x32.

    This week is my birthday so i got off gun restriction picked up 100 rounds for the 45/70 "that stuff is not cheap" and i ordered everything i need to reload it also

    Update: i did use the UTG bug buster scope it fit perfectly with out removing the rear iron sight.
    I test fitted a few scopes i had and this one worked the best, before i sight it in i think i might pick up a fixed power scope in the same size to see if i like it better.
    Eye relief is where i was having problems with other scopes and a 40mm would require me removing the rear iron or get taller rings.
    I wanted a short scope mounted low almost like a pistol scope and the only one that fit the bill was the Bugbuster that i already had.

    Now i am down to 2 guns i want a 308 and a 50 bmg and maybe a few more hand guns
