Yea & Huzzah!
All I can say is that it will make a fine addition to the family!
I bet that when I get to to the Range later on. That it will draw a few peeks from my Fellow wshhoters. No I am not that big a menace! Grumpy
I am one very happy camper with this rifle. Now it is not a minute of angle shooter. But I figure that a 2 inch group at a 100 yards will do the job for me! Grumpy
What it is like to drive there on the Freeways of Los Angeles! But I digress, As I bought myself a new toy!!!
Yep! It is a Uberti Single Action in the stout caliber of 44 Magnum. Hopefully soon I will be able legally take it home! Then to the Range and some more War Stories for you Grand Readers of mine.

This is a Winchester Model 92 rifle that someone went to a lot of trouble to look like a Winchester Model 53.
The barrel was replaced with a M53 barrel from 1929, the magazine tube was replaced with a button mag, the markings were ground off the upper tang, the lower tang was replaced with a pistol grip tang, and both stocks were replaced, the buttstock with one having a checkered pistol grip.
When the Model 53 rifles were first made, some used M92 receivers and some had serial numbers from the M92 range, but this receiver was made in 1907, long before the Model 53s were produced. The bore is bright with sharp rifling and no erosion.
