I saw that one at Little John's and knew it was a rare bird. Glad you got it.

I've got a few goodies en route from that sale too. One of which I've been bird-dogging for about 25 years.  Details to follow...   Wink

John,
Are you planning on bringing your Maynard to Riverbend in May? I'll bring my Ballard#7 and we can have some fun at the 600yd. Match......44/100 to 44/100

No Tom, I doubt I'll have it ready to shoot by then and I generally don't come down there that time of year. There is too much shooting around here then. I got 16 cartridges made up and the sight insert retainer on order. That tang sight doesn't look to shooter friendly. I think I'll make a base for my Hoke long range sight to put on it. I would like to go head to head with them sometime.

Really nice looking gun John.  Only one I've seen in several years of Maynard collecting.

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

I was in a local gun shop last Wed. as a gentleman came in with a Maynard he wanted to consign to them. He had a bunch of history for his father who had owned the Maynard, and was a Chinese Flying Tiger pilot during WWII. Supposedly his father found the gun in Burma and bought it from the owner.
Not sure on Maynard calibers, but looked like a very large bore, and guessing it was a .50 caliber? But the condition was amazing! It looked like a brand new gun inside, outside, and wood too! Had all the stock cartouches, and they too were perfect! Never seen a Maynard so perfect in all my life! I think they were talking around high $4k numbers for it?
