Hello guys... I've done a little searching, but did not find anything specific.
I just received my Grandfather's 42B that he used during his oil drilling days in Pennsylvania to compete for dimes. He was a natural "shootist" and won often. This would have been anywhere from the early 1930s into the 1940s. He was a rather good gunsmith in Bradford Pennsylvania from the 1950s to his death in 1981. He restocked and customized this rifle a bit.
What is the date of the rifle? (I realize I have not provided a serial number, but I do not see one. Is it under the scope mount? Under the barrel?) It has a steel Weaver rimfire Scope on it.
Anyway, it was put away as is in 1981 when he died and is in sorry shape. I am taking it off to a gunsmith later today for a good going over and hopefully restore a bit of usability.
Anything else you can tell me about this little rifle?
I refuse to be condescended to... (which means to be talked down to)
