Picked this up in a local pawn shop a couple of years ago for $300.



Sent it off to Pac-nor for a new barrel and cerakote $750 (6.5x55 Swede - midnight blue)
Found a Super Grade stock to fit it $100
And got this:



And with a bit of IMR 4350 it does this:



and this:



Any other pawn shop rescues out there? Post 'em up!

Very nice. Did it come with the old kahles or Swarovski on it as in the original pic?

No, that Swarovski was my Dad's.

Replaced it with a Minox ZA 5

That is a great rig! I like bucking the trend, too, going with 6.5x55.

Not a pawn shop rescue but an estate sale rescue. In 1985 or 1986. Winchester Model 1890 gallery model (.22 shorts only), octagon barrel. Marked $30.00, it was outside on the back patio with the 'junk'. I knew what it was and didn't even try to talk them down any. Serial number traced it to 1907. Ran a cleaning rod through it to remove an inch thick wad of dirt and dust. Took me the better part of a day to find a store that had .22 shorts and then it was off to the range. Tack driver.

Tens of thousands of rounds later it's still just about my favorite gun to shoot.

Hunt Dog, that's what I was referring to. You 'rescued' that gallery model. Good on you! Post a pic, I, for one, would like to see it.
