Which 1885?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I want to buy a "modern" 1885 rifle; problem is, which one?
Pedersoli? Uberti? Winchester?
What do you think?

Don't forget the C. Sharps 1885. I have one of those, as well as a couple of Browning 1885's. What kind of shooting are you looking to do?

Chris.

1885

I am a short range PA deerhunter who loves the 1885 action; I have decided that I would like to have one rebarreled in 7-30 Waters.
The 38-55 would be ideal to avoid extra work on the extractor.

If you want an "original" looking/operating action, go for one of the Italian copies, or the C. Sharps. If you don't mind it "modernized" a bit, the current Winchester (and prior Brownings) are superb actions/rifles. Depending on what you want, you may be able to shop around and get a Winchester for a price comparable (or even better) than the Italian copies.

1885

I've been looking at my options in the Browning and Winchester categories; the C. Sharps are great rifles, but considering the alterations that I intend it would be a waste of a beautiful arm.
If I can have accuracy and save some money, I'll go that route.
I haven't had any luck finding such a rifle in this area (used or new), nor have I any fellow shooters to query, so the web is the best tool that I have.

I recently bought a Winchester high wall in 22-250. For deer and coyotes in Texas and I love it. It's a tack driver and a pleasure to shoot. My favorite gun by far
