I need another smoothie like I need another hole in my head,.... but I couldn't turn this one from Jack Garner down (especially at that price).  :laffing

Actually I know little about my recent purchase,.... other than it was built by Jack Garner (I've known Jack for more than 40 years), and it's a .62 with a 35" barrel, with a tuned lock, and has a 13 1/2" trigger pull.  :)

I'll be able to report more about it, once I receive it.  :bl th up  :)

Cool. You must be stoked.
 Keep us informed on the particulars once she's in your hands.

I have one of Jack's Tennessee Mtn Rifles in .45 caliber.
The wood is awesome !!!
It's a real keeper. Ms. Smoke gave it to me maybe 40 years ago.  Wouldn't trade it for anything.

Well, I have the Jack Garner .62 smoothie in my hands.  :bl th up

It looks to be from the early-to-mid-80's,.... the ramrod is broken half way through and the ramrod hole is "gummed-up" with some unknown substance.

The front sight has been filed down to only 1/16" tall.  :o  :Doh!

The stock isn't in "pristine condition" by any means,.... but the barrel, lock, bore, and trigger, seem to be in okay/good shape.  :bl th up

None of the above was mentioned by the seller when I bought this smoothie,.... but, it's nothing I can't work around with a little "time and effort".  :bl th up  :)

On the plus side,.... Jack's excellent browning job on the barrel, lock, and iron hardware, looks as though it was done yesterday.  :applaud  :bow  :bl th up

You're going to have fun with that, just fixing and then working up loads.  Yes sir, fun times ahead, for sure!
