Our Assessment: Model 66's may be the best Cowboy Shooting Rifles available (of course the best looking). They can be short stroked with link kits, adding to the already smooth action. This gun belonged to one our best friends, St. Joes Sheriff, who was prematurely taken from us last month. His gun collection is being auctioned through us to benefit his widow and the Happy Trail's Children’s Foundation. Please buy this gun and take it out Cowboy Shooting again in Mike's honor.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
