Fun With Macro

This was my Grampa's old .22.





The patina is from its storage in the closet for decades.  The dust is from hanging on my wall.

Marble No 2 front sight.
Despite being made in 1938 it still groups wonderfully at 25 yards.  Grampa didn't really pamper his guns, but internally it's well taken care of.  For a decent hunk of his life he was a hired farm hand, I think I remember tales that he was hired to pop vermin in and around grain silos.  Only vague memories and everyone who heard them first hand are dead now.
