Winchester 1876

This fine example of a Winchester Model 1876 Centennial Model is chambered in 45-75 having more power than the older pistol caliber carbines of its time. Carried by warriors such as Theodore Roosevelt, Geronimo, the Texas Rangers, Canada’s Mounties and many others the Centennial Rifle by Winchester was the biggest and baddest rifle until the release of Browning’s 1886 by Winchester.

Capable of stopping big and dangerous game as well the bad guys at the time, Winchester’s 1876 is highly collectible and exceedingly rare in the market place. This original Winchester 1876 is as rare as a unicorn. To be able to find a Winchester 1876 in any condition is rare to find, one suitable to have restoration work done by Turnbull Restorations is rare. This firearm qualifies as very rare indeed and has been to Turnbull Restorations for some minor work. Showing as fine today as the day Winchester made it you will be stunned at this museum quality piece.

No paperwork required! This is an original Winchester 1876 and it won’t be here at The Gun Room Inc. too long before a discerning collector makes it part of a collection. To speak to The Gun Room Inc. about this very rare Winchester 1876 call (503)777-3931 and ask to speak to Warren.

 

 

U.S. Model 1841 Mississippi Rifle

The Mississippi Harper’s Ferry 1846 shown below in the gallery represents the U.S. Model 1841 in it’s first year of manufacture by federal Harpers Ferry Armory. Long considered the most beautiful example of a firearm in the 19th century the U.S Model 1841 or “Mississippi” as it was to become known later in the Mexican American War and the Civil War shot as well as it looked.

Coming in at just under 49″ and weighing 9lbs. the Harpers Ferry saw use by frontiersmen, and both sides of the Civil War alike because of it’s fine shooting and functional yet very robust build quality. This firearm comes to The Gun Room Inc. in original dress wearing brass furniture and lacquer on the barrel and is fine to very fine condition. Fully functional and shootable The Gun Room Inc. has it on display until it finds a new home.

Stop in to see the “Mississippi” and many other fine guns from the period to see a piece of history.

Night Vision For Everyone

It’s not too often the crew here at The Gun room Inc. gets jazzed about another widget but today was different. Today the little kids came out of us all when we were handed a second gen night vision scope. This is not the old school Vietnam era starlight scope of yore, this is new school digital with multiple modes and reticles and it even works in the day time without a hitch.

This writer was more than impressed when I went to the pitch black basement and touched the power button. I was imagining clearing a bad guy hideout in the dark when someone turned on the lights. Surprise the unit didn’t washout and with a simple flip of the cover the integrated pin hole made the whole operation pretty tacticool!

While these scopes are intended for hogs and bad guys they make night vision available to the average guy for pennies on the dollar. If we would have had this tech back when I was in the service I think some things would have gone much better.

features include:

  • day or night use
  • high optical magnification
  • built in 810nm LED IR illuminator (laser illuminators / target designators on some models)
  • video output (rca)
  • camera resolution 656 x 492
  • selectable electronic reticles
  • field of view 22.5ft @100 yards
  • max detection range 130yd
  • magnification 4.6
  • objective lens diameter 42mm
  • eye relief 2.36 inches
  • 30mm tube diameter
  • 2 x AA batteries
  • weight 23.6 oz

These night vision scopes are priced to fit in everyone’s budget and The Gun Room Inc. has them in stock today.

Steyr AUG MUD

Last week Mike had to say goodbye to one of his favorite bullpups, the Steyr AUG MUG.

It was adopted by a customer who made the already compact Steyr AUG look even smaller.

Not everyone is as big as our friend Carolina Panthers Offensive Tackle Michael Remmers but  the Steyr AUG fits them all. Mike almost cried when the Steyr AUG MUD left but he knows it went to a good home. Adopt your next bullpup from The Gun Room Inc. and get a gun with a pedigree before someone else does.

Milo’s Pick Of The Week Remington 700 Lapua Magnum

The first week of February always has Milo preoccupied with setting up a long range shooter for when the weather breaks here in the Northwest. Milo’s preoccupation this season is with the Remington 700 action chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum. While other lame ducks are still trying to hop up the old rifle with a wildcat cartridge Milo takes the off the shelf approach and goes with Remington’s tried and true Model 700.

To say Remington’s 700 action is robust would be an understatement. The Gun Room Inc. is Remington’s Pro Custom Shop in Portland, we get the really really good rifles here in the calibers Milo demands for his bird brained shooting drills.

Milo used to shoot the Barrett .50 cal but now prefers the .338 Lapua Magnum because the bullets are easier to carry and easier to come by.

To get your own 338 Lapua Magnum come see Milo at The Gun Room Inc., call us today (503)777-3931 and get that extra special model made just for you.

To BAR Or To Not BAR

The answer is to BAR! (pronounced bee-ay-arrr)

You heard it correctly The Gun Room Inc. has a new Colt BAR un-fired in collectible case with certificate of authenticity.  Yes to say I was excited would be an understatement, when I walked in and put my dirty sandwich grabbers on this pristine rifle I almost had a “Saving Private Ryan” moment. I’ll be watching that movie tonight, my girlfriend doesn’t know it yet, but yeah absolutely cherry BAR!

Pics to come soon I’m a bit too amped up to hold the camera steady for this post.

Want to see it in person? You know you want to! Come by and talk to Warren, Shaun, or Steve and ask to see it.

The Gun Room Inc. is located in sunny Portland Oregon on 5537 SE Foster Rd.

Milo’s Pick Of The Week

This week Milo has taken a liking to the Forbes M24B Rifle wearing Kryptek camo on the stock. Milo likes this rifle for hunting in the mountains since it’s light and accurate and chambered in the calibers he likes to shoot. The Forbes M24B comes equipped with Talley scope rings that allow the shooter to attach their quality optic of choice for high precision shoots when the mountain critters have the advantage.

Milo likes the non-reflecting barrels that absorb light instead of reflecting it like other lesser blued rifles do. Milo’s approach is simple, when you draw a once in a lifetime tag you should do everything in your power to fill it. The Forbes M24B is a force multiplier, it’s extremely light materials and better than most engineering make this rifle one to look for if you are in the high country or even out in the plains. We always hear Milo chanting “ounces equal pounds, and pounds equal pain” and Milo would know since some of the world’s best hunters come through The Gun Room Inc’s doors.  All Forbes Rifles come fitted with recoil pads and sling points as standard.

Milo is so wound up about the Forbes M24B right now that he says if you come get one in the Kryptek Highlander or the Typhon camo patterns he’ll throw in a matching Kryptek Gun Room Inc. hat for free.

The Forbes M24B is no longer in production but as per usual The Gun Room Inc. has them while the supply lasts in .270, 6.5×55, and 30-06. No one made a rifle in this weight category as good as Melvin Forbes and they continue to be the best lightweight gun available today.

Call The Gun Room Inc. today and get the rifle of your dreams before next season.
