NO that is pedersoli pennsylvania rifle that is the highest grade  tiger striped maple that they had there were 5 grades 5 being the highest , thats what i ordered  it was a birthday gift to me .lol in 2006, it has never been fired. the top 2 are CVA mt rifles I bought new in 1982 1 is a flintlock the other is perc, The bottom rifle is a jhon browning mt rifle also bought new in 1982, it is unfired, I bought 2 but I just sold one to a member of  WAC, im a member since 1985. I was going to post a close up of the pedersoli  It is a beautiful rifle I also have a pedersoli SILVER STAR,  the nose cap and patchbox and the inlays are sterling silver it was only made for 2 years because of the $ it didnt sell alot. It is unfired. When I hunted my meat getter is my CVA mt rifle perc, all my rifles are 50 cal, I didnt want to have a bunch of different cal I got 3 elk with my CVA it has battle scars but it shoots center if i do my part. I wanted to add those pics to the post but it only lets me add the one.  JOE & SCOOBY

Are you sure this is the photo which you think it is?  The top rifle is a CVA Mountain Rifle?  I don't recall the Mt. Rifle ever having a full stock!  The second one from the top looks like a Lyman GPR, or a Browning.  The sixth one down (fifth up from the bottom) would be a CVA Mountain Rifle, and a beauty it is, too!

All in all, a very impressive collection.

Aw, man, don't do that.  One little mastreke isn't the end of the world.  Don't beat yourself up that way.  I like Imgbb.com to post photos.  Seems to work pretty good for me.  Since Photobucket went away, it is the best I have found.
Heck, you could keep yourself busy for a week just posting about each of your rifles shown in the group photo.  And I wish you would.  And knives?  I sure do like the shiny, pointy things.  Wanting to see that for sure.  Hmmmmm...  Thinking I should take my own advice and do something about each of the nice knives I own.  That might be interesting - or it might be boring, I dunno.

Don't do that!  I mess up here all the time, and no one gets on my case.  Maybe gentle reminders of what is proper  though!   :Doh!

We NEED your input, and if there's a problem Rob or Rondo can usually help straighten things out.
