Got one of these handed down to me. Having a hard time finding ammo for it.
Looks like a standard 30-30. I was told it may have some value, and shooting it shouldn't be important.

Anyone know anything about this firearm?

What do you want to know Chris? I have 2, 1 has a saddle ring the other is just standard. They both have curved butt pates. They take standard .32 Winchester ammo sold all over the place up here. It looks just like a standard 30-30 Winchester rimmed cartridge only in .32 cal.

They are collectable....but they are still used quite a bit up here for deer. They are an extremely good brush gun. Light weight, lever action, low velocity, so they are good shooting thru thick stuff. Most guys up here use them for still hunting the mountains because they are easy to carry, short and quick sighting.

Brand new they sold for (1948 Shooters Bible) $56.50. Saw one about a year or two ago at a gun shop in Hughesville, Pa. for $450. I was curious because I have a couple of them. Cartridges are available in 140 and 170 grain, 170 is the most popular up here. Hope this helps. Smiley

Chris,

It is hard to find most any kind of ammo down here .. but it may be worth a road trip up to Don's area might be a 2-3 hour drive each way, but hey might be worth it if you want to shoot it some, sounds like a pretty neat rifle though....

.32 Ws is a "seasonal run"....  Ammo manufactures will not tool up to make "seasonal run" ammo until they get a certain number of rounds ordered.  In 2010 I could not find 30-40 Krag ammo (or brass) anywhere.  I can't remember if it was Remington or Winchester that said they wouldn't run 30-40 brass until they had orders that totaled 60,000+..  I kept looking and sure enough one day there was all you could want in the pipeline...  Cool

Buddy just scored an 1894 in .25-.35 caliber. Bought that and a newer semi auto .22 for $150. He said the guide puts his 1894 at a value of $1900. Pretty good buy. Another buddy has 2. One is the .32 and i forget what he said his other one was:/

Made my first rifle deer kill with one of 'em years ago.  Still kickin' myself in the arse for selling it, but I needed the $$ at the time to pay some business taxes. 

Talk about mis-placed priorities.  dunce

You can buy the ammo on line. It's not illegal in Maryland, yet.
