Found a 51

Post by Plain Old Dave » Sun Dec 15, 2019 9:09 am

After decades of looking, one is inbound. Honest old gun and only $300. Suggestions for range ammo? This will be my Sunday gun. I have pics, but there's no way to upload them, it doesn't look like.

Update. I have it. 1919 gun, rough outside, filthy bore. Cleaning underway. Developing story, as the saying goes.

Congrats on your purchase and at a good price. I have been using handloads with Berry's 100 grain bullets and Tightgroup. I have also used Winchester Whitebox with no problems. I like the Handloads better since they don't beat the gun up so much. Enjoy!

Tried to contact the Model 51 research guy. Number doesn't work and the email bounces. Help?
