This was my grandfather's deer rifle, a Remington Model 14 1/2 in .38-40. It sat in an attic for more than 40 years before I got my hands on it. As you can see, it has some wear on it, and the wood needs some work but it still shoots spot on at 60 yards—even if you can hear the bullet thunk as it hits the target. My grandfather took many a buck with this rifle in the mountains of south central Pennsylvania. Remington has dated the manufacture of this rifle as circa 1914. Ohio has allowed for straight-wall cartridges for deer this year, and I am seriously considering hunting with the .38-40 this year.
