Jim, thanks for sharing with us.  Your rifle is beautiful!

Very nice, and excellently restocked.  You really can pretty these guns up...kind of makes me want to do the same with my set.

The Weaver scope with Lischert extender is also a good combo.

This is my first post here. I've run hot and cold on collecting the little 219 guns for a number of years. I turned 76 last fall and am thinking it might be time to pass some on to other folks. The Hornet I'm showing pictures of may be the jewel of my little four gun collection. However, I have a .25-20 that might vie for the leading spot. I also have a .410 and a .30-30.
I'm not very knowledgeable about them. They mostly just sit in a safe. I've shot them all, but sparingly.
My lifelong first love has been vintage Sako rifles. I've had them in .22 Hornet, .218 Bee, .222, .222 Mag, .243, .244, .308 and one other odd one in 7x33. All gone now except the .308 Mannlicher carbine.
At any rate, I'll see if I can get pictures of the 219 Hornet on this post. I probably should try and get better ones.

My house was severely damaged in a storm in early October.  I have been staying with my daughter in Pennsylvania.  I will be returning home Sunday and due to internal repairs still needed to my home, I can live there, but will not have internet service for some time.  I do have a friend that I can check my email every few days, but I may not be very prompt in replying to inquiries on this forum or my regular email account for several weeks.  Please be patient with me.  Best wishes for a Happy New Year!  Garnett

Chris, I have been searching for a .32-20 for years.  Speaking of boxes, I have two Utility sets with original boxes.  The boxes are very rare!

Wow, very nice! The box, no less.

I have my eyes peeled for a Utica barrel.  Not holding my breath, though.  I dont need another whole gun, just a descent barrel.

I started with a Utica 219 in 30-30, and have acquired good condition, period correct barrels to go with it.

.22 Hornet, 12/16/20/.410

You cannot find .32-20 or .25-20 anywhere locally, nor on the internet for less than a King's ransom.  So Im not going to bother with those.  28ga is around, and makes a better "garden gun" than .410.

It sold yesterday for 555$. I already have two 28 gauge 220s or I would have bid.

Chris, thank for this new information.  It will be a help.  Do you have any thoughts on what the internal markings are that are sometimes stamped into the wood?  My first thoughts were that these numbers were for barrel size, but then I found the same number for different gauge barrels, so now I wonder if they are forearm outside dimension size or shape?
