That is certainly a handsome acquisition, Fotis. You have to love it!

Very nice!

It might be a sacrilege doing so to a new rifle... But I wonder if a lighter/different stain would bring out the nice figure of that grain better? Not being critical, it's beautiful, just a thought that crossed my mind.

Wow! What a rifle. Another nice one Fotis!

Nice!
How is the recoil on that thing with that curved butt plate?
A stout load on a bad shoulder could be an issue?!?!

I have one, that was made in 1909. It has put up a lot of meat, over the years. Mine like 300-350 grain pills. I have never tried jacketed bullets in it. Elmer Keith style.

Here are some more pictures. It now wears a Williams FP peep sight. I did not have to remove the rear sight because the peep "prints" right on top of the buckhorn sight and is covered completely! :mrgreen:

That is beautiful, Fotis. I have had a few with the steel plate over the years, and they hurt with a stout load. What are you planning on feeding it ?

Nothing like a 1886 Fotus; I still have the baby brother (45/70) in the ELW model (1907)It has nice wood on it but NOT even close to that stick of yours! Handsome outfit olde boy.
