  • Anybody like odd guns?
  • I just won an auction for Staggs-Bilt Firearms 20 gauge/.30-30wcf over/under rifle. I've always wanted a rifle shot gun combo but could never find the right mix. This should be just about right. I was the only person bidding on it so got it dirt cheap.

  • The lever breaks the action open to reload. Just a single shot so there is no magazine. Apparently they also made a .410 over/under and the barrels are interchangeable. That might be fun?

  • Dan I have Savage 222rem. over a 20 ga. That's right a 222 not a 22. It's touted as turkey gun, if the turkey wouldn't come in you could pop him with 222. I got it from a friend that painted houses and took it in as trade, he sold it to me for $90.00 years ago.

  • Not sure what you mean as Odd but I have a 22 Winchester Junior rifle mod. 67. single-shot, bolt-action It's something back in the day you gave your youngster to learn on. God Forbid you do that today. I also have a 22 Gallery Gun Mod 1906 Both in good working order.

  • I've got my great grandfathers Winchester model 67. It's horribly innacurate but still a fun gun. :)

  • Reminds me of the old days in Michigan hunting seasons. During deer season, you could take a bear with your tag instead of a deer, but not both.

  • I am going to guess: Most everyone on this site. The favourite for us way back when, was the army type 303. The college armouries had hundreds of them.

  • I would love to have one something like that some day, very cool olds guns. Been watching for a .22/410 for a while but they always go for more then what I want to give, lol. Love my Marlin 336 lever 30-30. Funnest gun I've ever had.

  • Re: Anybody like odd guns?
  • Looks like the top barrel is the 20ga. Interesting. Never seen one of those, especially as a lever action, how does it feed??
    Grandad had a .22 over a 20ga. I think it was a Stevens.
    That .22 had been shot so many times you could stick a whole .22 bullet with casing in the end of the barrel. It was old when I was 12 so its older now...

  • My dad had 16 and 12ga guns and we hunted mostly quail, squirrls, and turkey. Dad had an older gentleman friend who owned a very large peanut farm down by the Nottaway river. The older gentleman used a double barrel Ithica 20 ga., he said it had more finesse then a 12ga.. I never saw him miss a bird, rabbit, squirrel, or ground hog.
    To this day I like shooting my different 20 ga guns even for clay targets. I think it has a bit more finesse... lol. Of course my favorite is a Winchester semiauto 20 ga.
    But I do have a single barrel 20 ga that I like a lot.

  • "Many" years back as a young teenager I hunted rabbits with an "old gentleman" that used a Stevens nylon stock and forgrip 20ga. single shot and seemed to get all the rabbits.Many years passed and he passed but ,,,one day the gun showed up and I acquired it.Used it for many years and still have it.I guess my oldest son will acquire it.Best rabbit gun I ever had.My arsenal has left (gone to children)so all I have now is the 20ga.Better that way.

  • Re: Anybody like odd guns?
  • Charles, the above respones about 20ga was meant for you.
    You also reminded me of another older gentleman who lived acroos the street when my son was very young. His son had died and my wife and I adoped him and his wife as parents/grandparents.
    The gentleman, and he was a good country gentleman, gave my son his nylon .22. To this day my son prizes that rifle as one of his favorites.
    I would love to have my grandads Stevens .22 over and 20ga under, but my mother had five brothers and 4 sisters so I was not even close in the running for any of his guns.

  • Re: Anybody like odd guns?
  • Steve,,,is my brain playing tricks on me but the ones like this I saw were 22 over and 410 under.410 threw a close pattern but were also used for rabbit and squirel.The old gentleman I was talking about was scared of spiders and was cleaning a 410 one day and spotted a spider in the room and shot it with the 410.As I recall the floor / wall carried the mark long after he passed.

  • Re: Anybody like odd guns?
  • There are a lot of the .22 over 410, but there are a few .22 over 20 ga. Around. Granddads was 20 ga.
    My brother had a .410 3-1/2" magnum he used to hunt turkeys. It had a real tight pattern.
