As Steve said, those are fine looking guns.

Here's a couple of old cleaning rods.

Joe, those look a lot like the Marble's match safes. Look to be very well made.The book they rest on is a must have if you have an interest in the rifle. A great reference book for old rifles, scopes, sights and just a good read front to back too. ::tu::

Thank you, Steve.
Yes, these cleaning rods are very well designed and machined. The rods will rotate in the bore.

The book: I haven't looked in that book in years. Your remarks made me look at it again and if someone wanted a bit of education on the rifle get your education here. ::nod::

Most of that group would still be tight at 250 yds, theoretically.

You are right Charlie,
Zero will hold to that distance with this rifle .223 or .556

Camillus, Just realized your AR is a genuine Colt - nice (good shooting rifle too!) OH

Getting ready for the upcoming deer season, put a new scope on my old 270 WIN this past week. Need to get to the range soon and zero it with my handload. OH

Thank you Phil. The scope is a Leupold VX-6, 2-12x42mm CDS. It is a Euro style with 30mm tube. I traded for it from a buddy last week; they are on close-out right now, superseded by the identical HD version by Leupold. Check out Euro Optics on-line if you have an interest. OH
