Nine Thumbs up!
 
Never thought of these two as C&R guns, but y'all can tell me if they count as such.

Dad's Winchester Model 70 in .30-'06 w/Weaver K6. The S/N puts its manufacture in 1946. He bought it second-hand in 1949 from the original owner, who never fired it.
Dad bought it just before he made the trip north to Alaska, where it saw much action against mountain sheep, Sitka deer, and a couple grizzle bars.
The fit and finish of this piece of craftsmanship is beyond stellar. I'm amazed how well this piece has held up. The tolerances are now as they must have been on Day 1.
Interesting factoid: This rifle has only been fired by my dad, my older brother, and me. Only males of direct lineage of the Grand Sobo have squoze this trigger...

Dad's Winchester Model 94 in .32 Win Special. This was his very first gun, acquired when he was 13 years old in 1943.
While the action could use a good cleaning, the rifle is still deadly accurate, a fact to which I can attest.

ETA: The Old Man got a hold of me today for a FaceTime chat, and I asked him about that Sitka deer, above. He provided me with the pic below, of a September 1955 hunting trip with three other older fellas and he. Seems the limit was 3 deer/hunter, any age or gender. The Grand Sobo bagged nine of the 12 deer you see, all of which were bucks. The other three men could only manage one deer each. But, four hunters means 12 deer, so all's well that ends well... :)

My dad tells me the old man in the green plaid lumberjack shirt is one Karl Aschenbrenner, who at the time was a "retired troller of salmon", according to Pa... :cool:
