A Good “Project Gun” for somebody – A Winchester Sporterized Model 1917

If you have the time, tools and skill unlike me. It use to be that a lot of these really tough WWI Veterans. Were turned into some mighty fine large caliber rifles.

I myself have one or two hiding in the safe. One project being building the Son & Heir a rifle that will shoot the 257 Roberts. Since A. He does not have one & I don’t share well with my Bobs.

And B. he is always making fun of my devotion to that grand old round. Now if I can just find me a good smith that can get the job done. Before I stand before the Big Guy and have to explain myself & why I should not be sent to Hades.

They do not do checkering like that now a days outside of Holland & Holland!
