    I'll play.
    How's about a 1917 commercial that got refinished in bumper chrome - over rust pitting.
    Believe it or not it is still pretty tight and shoots great.

    Hows bout a beater thread ??????

    I’ve sold three beaters to help pay for the recently acquired Models 29 and 37. One, an old no dash 36 with a cylinder that I tried to cold blue and it didn’t really take, the second was the 10-5 with lots of wear and the last one was the M49. Kinda regret the M49 but oh well.

    As for remaining beaters, I have this old Enfield Jungle Carbine clone I describe in this thread:

    And a finish challenged CZ Turkish Over/Under 12g that I hit really well with.

Size:  2.36 MBThis old Model 317 "beater" enough? It's been carried thousands of miles in my 'go bag', shot rattlesnakes & fed me on several occasions. To say it's holster worn is a major understatement but it still shoots very well.
    As a contrast there's my Model 63-5 that looks as good as the day it arrived.

    Here I guess is my well used and stored improperly (beaters). The top is my model 10, the poor thing was left in a foam case before I got it. I dont think it had ever been shot. Until me and my daughters. The next is a speed six, that I just got. Once again not shot a lot but alot of holster wear. The best for last my 27, this gun was given to me by my father in law at his passing. It has been shot a lot and holstered alot, but it functions and shoots as if it was new. I really love this gun.Name:  20190611_215452.jpg

    Hey Leo, for a beater, that one is hard to beat!

    Here's the only "beater" I own...

    I have more than a few beaters, long guns, shot guns and revolvers. They make for great field guns as their condition is easier to maintain after a day in the woods.
    Here's a well worn pre model 18 that is a perfect hunting companion for those damp fall days. What's a little bluing loss got to do with function?

    Did I mention that I don't know any better than to stay out of the woods while it's raining?

    I thinks actually is a true bearer. This was my Grandpa's squirrel gun before his passing. Cracked stock, no blueing or nickel. Probably restore it one day. Name:  20190612_215502.jpg
