Evening everybody, picked up this poor 220E this past weekend without evening looking it over close for the amber (pee yellow) sunrise globe that it was sporting. While on the way home I stopped to fill the Yukon up with fuel. While the 40 gallon tank was filling I had some time to look over my scores and I noticed something peculiar about the E, no decal. So I knew that put it very early in the E line which just so happens to be my father's birthday lantern (7/51) So now he has a 220 brother to his 228 birthday lantern... And guess what month it is!! Had to be finished by next Thursday. Here it is:

Then something I had been yearning for several years showed up at my door... Now as well as being a GPA collector recently I've been collecting firearms since I was old enough to be responsible to own such pieces.
I am a very mechanically minded person so one of the things I enjoy most in the firearms industry is how they are built/work as well as their beauty. Now anyone who knows anything about the history of firearms knows the name John Browning. He not only made beautiful guns, but they were also very well built and innovative for the time. Over the years I have been collecting them that he had a hand in designing, albeit built long after he was gone. Anyhow this particular one has not only eluded me but was way out of my price range as well.

Browning 1886 re-chambered in 45-90:

Not too bad for showing up at my doorstep for half price. Really looking forward to loading up some ammo for this bad boy and getting down to my range.

Thanks for looking and have a nice evening.

By the way anyone know why I have to reduce my picture size to about 15%? Too much background going on? Really makes the pictures fuzzy.

not looking for any more Bday gpas. Honestly, if you have a 10-72 don’t let me know about it.

Jason, it was a factory 45-70 that has been re-chambered to 45-90. Still capable of firing both tho ðŸ‘

I found one once without a decal.  Don’t remember the date and it has since moved on.  Nice looking Browning and that last picture is calendar material.

Nice pair, Toby.  Are you going to shoot black powder or smokeless?

Aaa, very cool. I know a tad about the 45-40 but I know nothing about the 45-90.

I'll probably mostly shoot trail boss powder at the range as it's much easier on the shoulder. Something heavier if I decide to try to nab a white tail. I have shot plenty of 45-70 I loaded up with black powder, but it was in a break again. So easier to clean ðŸ˜

I'll have to refresh my memory, but I believe it's 3/10s longer case for more powder of course ðŸ˜

Nice scores on your dads birthday lanterns. My dads is 6/51 and he loves 200a's so for his 65th birthday I spent up and got him one off the bay. One of my most expensive lanterns to date, but it was for my dad. Have since found another in the wild and a 220, plus a m1950 from 51 and a b/51 500 stove, figured it would be the closest I'll come across. 

I have the same love of the mechanical design of firearms, mostly milsurp or oddball stuff for me though. One of my favorites is a Ithaca m66 lever action shotgun, not very collectible but i grew up shooting my grandfathers 20ga and have a couple 12s now. I'm really wanting to build a 45-70 siamese mauser. I always say I'd be horrible at keeping firearms companies in business because all the ones I like are pre 1970.

Nice on both Toby. I have my Dad's 1912 Model 92 in 25-20. Factory loads are hardly no recoil, but I loaded up a little heavier. A friend has a 45-70 86 repro and they really kick in smokeless. Can't imagine a 45-90. Buffalo guns like the Sharps went up to 45-120... yikes!

Model 92 another great Browning design ðŸ˜
Should hold up to heavier loads just fine (within reason) with the locking lugs to hold the bolt.

Yes I have experience with a Sharps in 45-110 and they are no plinker for sure.

VERY nice levergun, Toby, I can sure appreciate that! I always thought a neat idea for a vintage gun collection would be pre-1900 Winchesters (according to model #, not manufacture date.)
I just haven't found the money tree yet.

Nice! Now you need to find a Winchester 1886 .45/90 as a companion.  Would make a great duo!

very nice. I have a High Wall and a Sharps Borchardt myself.
Both are chambered for wildcat rounds. The High Wall is chambered for a .219 Donaldson Wasp, and the Sharps is a 6mm x .30-30 Also a Browning FN Mauser in 7mm Rem. Magnum. My dad built them up, with a little help. All fire formed brass loaded to full power yields 4500 fps +/-. My dad was planning on teaching me the finer points, but we ran out of time. So I use low power loads.
Our family owned a Winchester with an octagonal barrel with a ranch brand on it, .45-70 and was rechambered to .45-60. Unfortunately it disappeared during probate.
Oh, almost forgot. the 220 is a beauty.

Glad for that! Those finer points could have been explosive!

I'm lucky enough to know a couple collectors with such collections. I myself have yet to find this money tree you speak of as well Ã°Å¸ËœÂ

The highwall is the next to get on my list,... Also commands big money. So I'll wait till one walks in my door 🙂

Wowser Toby! What a combo- a Coleman 220E and Browning 1886 lever gun. Both well built, high quality and long lasting. Congratulations on the nice additions to your collections. I have a soft spot for Colemans and lever guns too especially Winchesters.
