My father in law died a few months ago. We've inherited a good deal of guns from him since (my MIL is not a "gun person") This week we've been doing a lot of needed cleaning and beginning the process of demo (house had some mold issues, and has 40 year old carpet) so we have a 40 yard dumpster. While I was cleaning out the garage with the help of my wife, she grabs "a black thing" from a bin that had other misc crap in it - turned out to be a complete barrelled action. Today we found the stock for it - but no magazine rod for it (for those unfamiliar, as I was until yesterday, the 141 is a tube fed bolt action, with a magazine tube hidden in the butt of the stock, rather than slung under the barrel like on a Henry, Marlin, or like Winchester's own center fire tube fed guns. The gun is a little rough - dusting of surface rust (no biggie) but the bolt is a bitch to work. Out of the stock, I could not get the bolt ot seat fully. With the stock on it, you reeeally have to push it forward to get the bolt to roll into the firing position, unlocking and pulling it rearward is a real bitch after you get it seated forward. I cannot find anything damaged on the bolt group, it has some...neat... stamped spring steel extractors that slide around the bolt as it works, Even after popping them off, the bolt is a real bear it seat properly. I inspected the chamber and don't see anything out of the ordinary. Going to recheck it tomorrow or Saturday, as it should not be anywhere near that hard to work. They only made these damn things for 6 years from 1967 to 1973, but thankfully Numrich has stuff for it. $25 for the mag tube component I need. Anyone have any experience with this gun? It was also sold by Sears with their house brand, from what I understand. Its a neat gun, but being fed from the butt, I don't think its one I would've bought or sought out. My wifey has no sentimental attachment to it - so if I can get it working and slicked up a little, I may try to offload it to fund other gun projects - or maybe grab up a Ruger American rimfire (had the 22 inch version a few years ago, I want the 18 inch if I can find one).
